'Write From The Heart'
This course runs in May each year. Brenda runs a week long creative
writing workshop in Crete. Here's how she describes the event:
"What we carry within and what surrounds us can prove to be the
alchemy of creation. In this course, we will explore, discover, play
and weave whatever form feels most authentic. In glorious surroundings
you will be enthused and supported to find your writer's voice be
it non-fiction such as memoirs, or in fiction in the form of short
stories or novel writing."

In her work as a psychotherapist Brenda Mallon finds that dreams are
one of the most powerful healing tools available to her clients. She
believes it is also one which we can all learn to use which is why
she runs dream groups and workshops throughout the United Kingdom,
in America and Crete.
||For the past twenty
years Brenda has been studying dreams and dreaming and has amassed
a treasury of dreams some of which she has used in other books.
Her most recent book 'Dream Time with Children: Learning to
Dream, Dreaming to Learn' was published in December 2001 and
includes a section on the dreams of Harry Potter.
In 2000 Brenda was elected to the Board of Directors of the
Association for the Study of Dreams and presented papers at
their annual conference held in Santa Cruz, California. The
subjects were 'Children's Dreams' and 'Greeting the Dream Healer',
an exploration of the power of dreams in physical, psychological
and spiritual healing. She also showed 'Children Dreaming' a
ground breaking film made for the BBC TV 'Inside Story' series.
This documentary showed artwork and dream narratives from children
in Belfast, Manchester and Cambridge and revealed how conflict
affects the psyche of children. Brenda is the British representative
of the ASD International Dream Time Project for Britain and
Ireland. If you are working with dreams in these countries please contact her for further details.
