LIFE WRITING WITH COACHING

Freeing yourself from procrastination

Monday September 21st - Saturday September 26th 2020

The Hurst

Have you begun a life story or biography and abandoned it because you are stuck? Perhaps like many writers you’re mired in procrastination. We will guide you through a process to kick-start your writing again and to keep going
once you have done so. Colin will lead you through techniques and practices to find the centre of your story. Jo, an experienced hypnotherapist, will take the group through a guided meditation each day. In her tutorials Jo will focus on coaching you to access your confidence so that you can write your story. New to Arvon, this week is a unique opportunity to open yourself up to something fresh and potentially transformative.
