Creating from Within workshop

This annual workshop on Haiku is scheduled for mid August at Anam Cara.

Due to the demand for an shortened format this year, the “Creating from Within” workshop 2010, led by Kim Richardson and Maeve O'Sullivan (Poetry Diva), will run from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st August 2011 as a long weekend workshop at the Anam Cara Retreat on the Beara peninsula in West Cork. That format has worked well for us in previous years.

Combining the haiku work with mindfulness practices, the outstanding natural beauty of Ireland's Béara Peninsula and the peace and quiet of Anam Cara Writer's and Artist's Retreat and gardens, our aim is to heighten our levels of awareness, finding a path to the "principle within," which is the true source of our inspiration.

The Workshop Fee of €450 includes:

Workshop (haiku tuition and mindfulness exercises)
Room and full board with your own room and en suite (either at Anam Cara or a nearby B&B; transport to & from B&Bs to Anam Cara provided if needed)
Access to all the amenities at Anam Cara including the common working areas, the movie and music loft, the conservatory, the hot tub overlooking Coulagh Bay, the sauna, and the five acres of garden and riverbank grove with 32+ quiet nooks and crannies
For further information and bookings, e-mail Sue at or call Anam Chara on 027-74441. More details on

Please note that "Creating from Within" is limited to a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve participants, with booking on a first-come, first-served basis.

No previous experience of haiku or mindfulness is required to participate in the workshop.
