Lighthouse Workshops

Finding The Creative You

Undoubtedly, we become what we envisage.’ – Claude M. Bristol

A certain deep and magnificent power resides within each and every one of us – the power to pull at the threads of reality to watch it unravel and to put back together a world that makes sense to us; the power to break through doubt and fears seamlessly and heroically; the power to create. Whether you are working individually on pieces of art like painting or poetry; or if you are part of a collective working towards putting up a theatrical performance; or if you simply wish to connect with the creative force inside of you – Finding the Creative You allows you to meet, or re-acquaint yourself, with your fundamental creative drive.

Finding the Creative You is a workshop designed for young adults, ages 12 and above. However, older adults can get the same benefits, as well as getting back in touch with their playful sides. The workshop covers theatrical games, exercises using Clean Space and Mental Space exploration. Participants will leave with renewed faith in their creative prowess, a host of fun exercises to do by themselves (or in groups) whenever the mojo seems to be stalling, and a toolbox of creative practices they can pursue, at their own time, in order to remain in the state of flow.

About the Workshop Facilitator
All sanity depends on this: that it should be a delight to feel heat strike the skin, a delight to stand upright, knowing the bones are moving easily under the flesh.’ – Doris Lessing
For Shayontoni Ghosh, making art is almost as joyful as facilitating art. A writer, theatre artiste, NLP and Mental Space-based coach – she has spent her life in pursuit of artistic goals big and small. Working with theatre groups in Hyderabad for 14 years has given her valuable experience and a keen understanding of the stage, the technicalities of a production, and the sheer will and stamina it requires to keep everything together. As a writer, she has explored various mediums – screen; playwriting, poetry, copywriting for advertising agencies and prose. Her foray into coaching with NLP and Mental Space Psychology is a natural move down a path, uncovered and defined lovingly over a short life of trying to make things better.
