Write to Know Joy Pic

The Write to Know Self community writing classes are held in Mornington, Victoria, Australia.

The Theme For 2017 is JOY!

Is your life brimming with joy?

Whether you are a writer or haven’t written and would like to, these gatherings will inspire and uplift. Memories and experiences shape a person’s life. Write to express your unique voice and receive the benefits of emotional and mental health, and wellbeing.

The gatherings are not based on whether you can spell, and are about having fun utilising the senses. Discover your creative potential.

Leanda Michelle has 16yrs writing experience, is a local author of 3 books, and loves facilitating workshops. She looks forward to meeting you.

When: 3rd Thursday of each month
Where: Church of Christ Community House, 18 Pitt Street Mornington

Sound & StoryA closed Facebook page called Sound & Story has been created in conjunction with the Write to Know Self group. It’s for people who would like to attend these classes and express their unique voice, but can’t due to distance. If you’d like to join please email Leanda via the contact link above — introduce yourself and let her know why you’d like to join. She looks forward to meeting you ♥



Every so often the Write to Know Self gatherings are gifted with a guest speaker. In June 2017 we connected with joy curator, Adrienne Enns – Canada, creator of the May You Know Joy Meditation and Seeds Of Intention Cards. Her talk was hugely inspiring. If you’d like to be a guest speaker with our group, please contact Leanda.

Dear Leanda,
Your workshop left me brimming with joy. To share time with like-minded souls nourishes the spirit and the mind. As I expected you gave us great subjects to write about and your guided meditation was both thoughtful and inspiring. I know which platform I want to leave from…
Thank you and blessings x

    I’m so pleased you enjoyed the writer’s gathering… I too, felt full of joy during and after. Which reminds me, I must revisit those platforms! I look forward to sharing more joy-filled exercises with you soon… blessings and love♥

Leanda – what a reminder that Joy is always there -even when we live in such a crazy world. The opportunity you offered in allowing me to stand back for a short space of time and to focus on the way I can bring in more joy to my life was a timely reminder of what is important.
I loved the stories, colours and meditation and the beautiful nurturing space you created.
Thank you for that very special time

    Thank you too, Barbara, for sharing in the essence of joy. I’m finding the more I focus on the energy of this word, the more joy that appears in my life. I look forward to sharing more joy with you. May you continue to discover joy, daily♥

I love these workshops and have been attending whenever I can for … goodness knows how long. The guided visualisations are a lovely way to shut off the logical and write from the creative heart. I have laughed, cried, shed some hurts and enjoyed yummy suppers. I thank you Leanda for this great experience.

    I remember when you first inquired Del… I was living in Melbourne, and you weren’t able to attend. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to live on the Mornington Peninsula, and share what I love doing, with you. Thank you for being open to receive and immerse self in your creative brilliance♥
