How Singing Can Change Your Life

14 June 2017, 19:00 – 20:30
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Research on singing for wellbeing has burgeoned in recent years and this event, in collaboration with the royal college of Music and Imperial college London, will explore cutting-edge findings on how singing in a choir can affect mental health, psychological wellbeing, quality of life and stress hormones. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in a choir session led by groundbreaking charity Tenovus Cancer Care, which now has 19 choirs across Wales and London for those affected by cancer. You will also find out about a new two-year study examining the effects of singing over several months, and have the chance to take part in the research. If you’ve ever fancied joining a choir but didn’t dare, come and try it out!

You will learn:

  • How to let go and truly sing with abandon
  • About how taking part in a groundbreaking study focusing on the effects of singing in a choir will improve your mental health

The project has also been approved by the National Research Ethics Service and we are collaborating with the Royal Marsden Hospital.

Explore Your Story, Review Your Life Script and Start a New Chapter in Your Life with Jacq Burns

5 July 2017, 19:00 – 20:30
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Ready for a new chapter in your life? Are you a stifled creative, a budding writer, need new ideas or a life rethink? Jacq Burns’s ‘see your story map’ technique lets you take a playful look at where you’ve been, where you are now and where you’re going. Using storytelling techniques to reflect on your life so far, what you want to add to it and what your next chapter will be, mixed up with a little free-writing and brainstorming, Jacq will help you to plan a journal, a biz plan, a bio, a blog, a novel, or even a new life. To finish off the evening, we will be still for a creative, go-do-it visualisation and meditation.

You will learn to:

  • Review the script you live by daily
  • Edit the story you tell yourself, and know what to drop and what to keep
  • Write or storyboard a plan and a promise to yourself for creating your next chapter

Jacq Burns is a literary agent, director of London Writers’ Club and newly formed, London Writer’s School. She’s author of Write A Bestseller. She was an editor at Random House and a literary agent at HarperCollins. Jacq teaches meditation to keep creativity flowing. Explore her London Writers’ Club tribe at londonwritersclub.com.
