Nurturing Self-Compassion: A Virtual Writing Workshop
06:30 PM
Online Event

Taking place during Mental Health Week, this virtual writing workshop offers you a moment to use writing as a self-compassion practice to create space for unfiltered feelings and thoughts to be expressed, leading to revelations and a sense of lightness and increased mindfulness.

You will learn the process of automatic writing and put it all into practice with a few sessions of guided mindfulness followed by poetry writing. Through this reflective process, you will have the opportunity to share and discuss with others if you feel comfortable.

We’re excited to share this cozy virtual space with you and discover the transformative power of writing 📃🖊️

Scattered is a project that aims to employ automatic writing techniques used in poetry paired with guided mindfulness meditation sessions to tap into a deeper conversation with oneself. Through the practice and development of the technique they call the headspace method, they aim to build introspection and mindfulness. Their mission is to empower people to foster self-love, engage in self-expression, and nurture mindfulness skills through artistic means, primarily through automatic writing. To learn more, visit
