Bright Creative Workshops 2017/18
Mandalas for Clarity Dates: 12 January, 12 May, 20 October 2018
A mandala is a circular pattern that Carl Jung maintained reflects our true self. In this workshop you will create and colour a mandala of your own that reflects your life. Going through this process of creation and reflection develops greater self awareness of your own values, aims, capacities and ambitions. Participants will be encouraged to share and talk about their mandala within the group – this brings up personal and common issues and challenges and encourages group support, cohesion, shared experience and relationship building. This workshop can bring up unexpected memories and emotions which will all be handled sensitively by Linda. This workshop often brings deeper clarity and purpose to your life.
‘Lovely setting – a feeling of calm and peace. Supportive atmosphere, just right for exploring issues.’ Claire
‘It was relaxed, everyone had the space they needed and we were kept safe. Enjoyed the theory, the chance to explore without judgement – please let me know about any other workshops you are running!’ Lisa
Dream Analysis and Active Imagination Dates: 14 October 2017, 9 March, 7 July, 10 Nov 2018
Working with our dreams brings insight into our unconscious functioning. We contain all the information we need within ourselves if only we knew how to access and translate the often confusing images and messages received in dreams. Active Imagination is a kind of waking dream – accessed through using visualisation and meditation. Combining a dream and re-accessing the dream using active imagination can help us to begin to understand the messages we send ourselves. This workshop helps us to uncover our creativity, or our blocks to creativity, and puts us in touch with a way to continue communicating with ourselves. Participants would need to write down as much of a recent dream as they can remember and bring it with them to the workshop. If you don’t remember dreams then don’t worry, we can work with your active imagination.
‘I attended a Dream Analysis Workshop today. Having never been to something like this, I confess I was unsure what to expect. Led by Linda Bishopp, we gained an insight into the structure of the psyche and the dream theories of Carl Jung – dreams reveal more than they conceal.
Working with our own dreams we looked at dynamics, dream re-entry and interpretation. It was SO interesting! It gave a lot of food for thought, and I am looking forward to continuing my personal analysis journey.
Huge thanks to Linda for offering this workshop, had a fantastic day and now have a few new books to add to my Amazon list – came away with much to ponder.’ Hannah
‘Excellent quality of information and presentation.’ Henry

NEW! Business Planning for Therapists Date: 23rd April 2018
You’re going to run your own business and you’re good at what you do – so it’ll be a snip once you get going, right?! You’re super excited about not having a boss any more and now you will be able to do things exactly as and when you want to. I don’t wish to be a spoil sport, and you will be making a lot of decisions for yourself and that is great, but bear in mind that to make this work you will work harder than you’ve ever worked before – you will love most of it, after all you love what you do i.e. the therapy, but you will also have to do many things you may not have done before, or are not very good at, or knowledgeable about, to run your business. You’ll need to think about all the different jobs that will need to be done to keep things ticking over.
Linda uses a novel idea to help you start your business plan – you will use a mandala (a circular design) to start thinking about what you need to do to start and run your therapy business. There will be plenty of time for thought and sharing in the room. a pooling of ideas and problem solving.
Cost: £55.00 Time: 10am to 4pm Venue: Sittingbourne, Kent
