I believe that the written word is a powerful tool for our personal development and healing. Through this we can express our feelings and thoughts, narrate our personal storιes∙ understand who we are and what is important to us. As we read and listen to the words we wrote, new perspectives open up in front of our eyes that help us move on with our lives. In short, paper becomes our mirror.

I would recommend Dimitra's expressive writing workshops to absolutely anyone, at any stage of their life or career. From the first session, I felt I was already a step forward in overcoming my blockages and discovering newfound enjoyment and confidence in my work. The methods were so practical and flexible that I could adapt them to my specific needs, while setting measurable goals. Above all, her exercises opened my eyes to a new way of thinking about my work, and myself.
This retreat was one of the most powerful experiences of my life, one that truly helped me to finally push my writing forward. Very well organized, great workshops, productive time to write, magical location.
I hugely enjoyed the one-on-one session with Dimitra. She is a great listener, and knows how to ask all the right questions to get you thinking about your own writing process. I finished the session feeling very motivated and with new insights and perspectives relating to present and future work. Perfect!
