LAPIDUS JOURNAL 20th Anniversary Special Triple Edition

Capturing the Collective and Connected Spirit of Writing for Wellbeing

Welcome to The Lapidus 20th Anniversary Special Triple Edition – we hope you agree that this exciting Triple Edition is bursting with ideas, metaphors, stories, science, and practices, to celebrate a very special year.

We wanted this Special Edition to Capture the Collective and Connected Spirit of Writing for Wellbeing. Why? It appears that with each passing year, we learn more about the pressures and demands of modern life on our planet and all of the inhabitants on it, as well as the destructive implications of these on wellness. It seems that feeling and being connective and collective in our thinking and acting is a productive way forward for wellness – and importantly, that words and writing for well-being are a highly engaging route towards these outcomes.

The excellent response to the call for papers indicated to us that we ourselves connected with a wider collective who wanted to celebrate with us, with many beautiful contributions from original founding members, new members, and members-to-be. So much so, we created three parts to the Special Edition:

Part 1 – The first 20 years of Lapidus – collates alternative accounts and reflections particularly from our Lapidus Day 2016 celebration;

Part 2 – Collectives Connecting to a Collective Spirit, illustrates writing practices which enable multiple people to connect with each other or to other things in some way, and in doing so, create new meanings, understandings, or relationships with something, including themselves;

Part 3 – Individuals Connecting to a Collective Spirit, illustrates individually focused writing practices to create new meanings, understandings, or relationships with something, including themselves.
