Rachel's testimonial

I spend all of my energy on staying in the realm of ok. Dipping my toe either side: occasionally to be submerged into darkness, more often into laughter.

I hadn’t realised the scope of the course but I was more than happy to be provided with a space in which to play. With the idea of accessing my subconscious somehow. Enjoying the relief of doing this outside the construct of “art” or “poetry" (in which I am normally paralysed).

I look at some of the work and remember the peace and lightness it has brought me. It endears me to it, quietening any internal critical narrative. It's sparked a playful freedom, in which I hope to bathe in forever, or at least this next bit of time.

If you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to do the course, do it.
