Linda Kaoma’s poetry workshops are spaces for mindfulness, reflection, and self-care. She fuses poetry writing with meditation, yoga, breathwork, and meditative movement. Poetry’s emotive quality lends us the space to explore our feelings and experience deep moments of reflection. It also allows us to take ordinary realities or stories and adorn them with figures of speech and other jewels, thus allowing us to rethink, relook and refeel our current lived stories and narratives.
This poetry workshop will include time for play to indulge our inner children, and will include more than just literary exercises - it will also include drawing and visualisations. We need to play in order to learn, thus playing during a poetry workshop will help us learn more about ourselves.
