Do you turn to painting when you feel stressed or are going through some anguish? Or perhaps journaling? Or writing poetry?

Artistic and creative outlets are cathartic and some of the best tools to discover deep-seated emotions. They can be revelatory in their clarity.

Join Reshma Ashar, a psychotherapist, nature guide, and poetry enthusiast, on this expressive and exploratory journey. Let your creativity flow, as you craft poems inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Deepen your connection with nature, and express your inner thoughts through the beauty of words.

 What to expect in this session

  • Express your unique bond with nature through poems, art, or any creative means.
  • Establish meaningful connections with fellow nature enthusiasts.
  • Pause, reflect, and express your thoughts to improve your emotional wellbeing, confidence, and stability.
  • Inspire change from within and promote healing and personal growth.

Benefits of poetry for mental health

Poetry has also been shown to benefit those going through grief, pain, and cognitive dysfunction, among other issues.
