A gift of exploring your inner landscape and setting yourself free
Everything we need is within us
Writing Circles that I lead and hold space for are writing groups in which, in an intimate and supportive atmosphere, you are invited to explore yourself. Often we have a vague feeling that our life is not all there, that something is missing, but we have no idea what that something is. In most cases, that something is – us. In many ways we don’t know who we really are, and this makes it hard for us to discern between what we perceive we “have to do” and that which is our heart’s desire to do.
Imagine if you could discover within yourself the courage to follow your dreams? These dreams may not be include anything to do with writing, though they may, but it is through this writing process, this transformation process, that you can allow yourself to understand what these dreams truly are and to find the courage within to pursue them.
The process is that of capturing our fist thoughts and putting them on paper. For this we write fast, we don’t pay attention to grammar or any other rules, we don’t go back, we don’t cross, and we don’t plan what we will write. We simply write – as fast as our first thoughts are coming!
This is a very courageous act of self-discovery. We come face to face with our thoughts and emotions, many of which we would not want to admit we have, some of which may be painful. Yet, we all have them, and they are our guides to self-discovery and authentic living. Becoming intimate with our thoughts and emotions can set ourselves free to live our life authentically, passionately, and with an open heart.
The only prerequisites are your willingness and openness, everything else will come with time.
Online Writing Circles
Online Writing Circles are an excellent way for everyone, regardless of where they live and what’s going on in their area, to be a part of a group in which they feel completely supported to explore their inner landscape. Online Writing Circles meet once a week. We meet for two hours. Written and conversational language for Online Writing Circles is English. Maximum number of participants per session is ten.
I am attending Branka's writing circle "Coprničje Pero" in Zagreb. Our circle has become a safe place where I am fully protected in feeling strong and vulnerable, smart and simple, brave and scared, extroverted or withdrawn ... I would recommend it to anyone who feels&thinks this might be a place for them, anywhere&anytime.
Options & Fees
Single session allows you to dip your finger into the Writing Circles experience. Four-session option allows you to take a swim and commit to yourself and your process for a longer period of time to see what happens. Choosing an annual pass allows you to really dive in and give yourself a gift of committing to exploring your inner landscape and setting yourself free.
Four-session option gives you four sessions, at a discounted price. You will need to register for each session you wish to attend as event/session registration opens. Note that there may be weeks when we will not meet, and in this case there will be no option to register for that week. Annual pass is valid one year since your registration date and you will need to register only once. In case I need to cancel a session all participants will be notified.
Writing Circle led by Branka Valcic (Siri Darshan Kaur) in the red tent was very healing and transforming for me. I felt protected, safe and loved in this circle of women which allowed me to open up and really dig deep. Through the creative process I expressed something I didn’t even know was there. It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for me. Hope you will go on uplifting and inspiring women with your work. Many blessings.
Writing Circles Schedule & Registration
Writing with Branka opens the doors of the subconscious and takes one on a ride through wonderland in which everything is possible. Writing comes as a natural process, spontaneous, without fences, censorship, self-censorship, without rules and borderlines that keep one stuck. Field of possibilities. Wonderful and all encompassing. Sad. Happy. Hyper sensible. Unbelievable. Wicked. Angry. Within the circle we come to our own center where we find rest and acceptance. We find ourselves contained within the present moment and embark on an adventure to explore ourselves and the boundaries of possibilities. Through Branka’s creative, free, and playful leadership, discovering all the color, length and breadth becomes truly a wonderful experience. This process of discovery offers us a better understanding of our own as well as the nature of life, and on this journey we also discover and develop our own passion towards free creative expression through writing. We are free to take note of our thoughts, their bewildering meandering, without preconceived plans and foreplanning. Within Branka’s circle I become Alice in Wonderland – truly a desirable departure from the predictable everyday life.”
