Event description
Writing from a piece of art, photography, an object that has meaning for us enriches and enlivens both the writing and the writer.

About this Event

‘There is an art to writing and there is writing from art. Bringing the two together enables us to create from a deeper, calmer place. It allows us to surprise ourselves with the richness that resides within us all.’ Karen Adler 

Karen Adler is the Forest of Tranquility Covid 19 Author/Artisan in Residence. Having originally planned to live in Spain this year, she is back on the Central Coast with her many skills of Art Therapist, Writer, Researcher, Anthropologist, Artist & Curator. 

Karen walked the Camino de Santiago in 2006, then in 2018 and 2019. Walking the Camino, its day after day rhythm of solitude and beauty and reflection, enabled her to finally heal from her own grief and loss. As a result, she bases much of her work on The Journey archetype, the mind/body connection, the notions of play/process/movement, connection with oneself and with the Earth. These are all rich, powerful connections which result in writing which is more beautiful and eloquent.

She uses the arts to assist people to reconnect with their own wisdom, power and truth and to build their lives based on self-knowledge.

Karen is a firm believer in the inherent healing qualities of the Arts. She runs Art Therapy workshops for people seeking to bring about positive change in their lives, for people recovering from trauma and for professionals of all kinds.
