Metanoia Institute is proud to sponsor Lapidus International 2021

Metanoia Institute is proud to sponsor Lapidus International.


This two day conference, brought to you by Lapidus International offers a host of inspirational speakers and presenters. Bringing together both theory and practice of writing for wellbeing, whilst exploring and expanding ideas with experiential workshops.

Lapidus International brings together the varied experiences of researchers, practitioners and participants to explore and expand the diversity of Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes (CWTP) and writing for wellbeing, drawing from a range of disciplines (literature, counselling & psychotherapy, neuropsychology, medicine, emotional geography, socio-spiritual approaches and more). Creative Bridges will showcase relevant research and practice, assess the current picture of the international field and find inspiring and robust ways to bring CWTP research and practice to our diverse communities across the globe.

“This international conference is the third one of its kind and the first online. It brings together a wide community of writers, practitioner and researchers to look at the latest in therapeutic writing. Metanoia students and graduates will be part of this event, where topics range from writing in relation to ecology, ethics, empathy, equality, and in fact everything!

The conference builds from strength to strength, forming bridges that inspire and expand what we know and do”
