Pink Quill - Memoirs of the Heart
Poetry, Public Speaking and Persuasive Writing
All rolled into one Boot-Camp with a public showcase on graduating night
(Ages 12 to 16)
Exploring with courage and intimacy our most passionate thoughts, ideas and notions. Through journaling, poetry, haikus, spoken words and a non-persuasive approach to persuasive writing. After all, the best advocates for change did not preach their way into a revolution, they tugged at the heartstrings of the collective passion.
The best speeches and speakers have made an impact because of the way they make us feel. We are moved by passion and emotions. It is not always easy to pour our hearts onto the pages of a notebook and even harder to stand up and express it to the world.
In the Pink Quill participants will be challenged to dig deep to find passion and fuel it with words that bring a message or statement to life in an artistic piece such as a poem, spoken words; or for the musically inclined - a song. Participants are encouraged to explore creative play with words.
The greatest challenge yet comes in performing this in a public setting and touching many more hearts. Not only will participants be empowered to perform, but also to appreciate the capacity for words to inspire and motivate others – a powerful form of persuasion. Persuasive writing is not just about creating a good argument for or against a topic, but to sway the heart - then the mind.
Space limited to 28 pax only

We Offer An Innovative Solution To Creativity
We are a spirited, innovative and entrepreneurial inception – creating change one ripple at a time. It all stems from the name SoulArist, pronounced “solaris”. SoulArist is the culmination of “Soul” – our very essence; and “Arist” - derived from the Greek word aristi, which means excellence. Nothing short of – Soul Excellence we say! We are in the business of creativity after all – where better to begin than with our name. The pronunciation “solaris”, is in itself a Latin word meaning “pertaining to the sun” – a brilliant and life-giving element. So, in short we are here to inspire SoulArist /solaris/ in everyone, every day, in every way.
Our Tagline Says It All
Our Motto, Our Vision and Our Mission – One Tagline Sums Them All. “Experiencing Enjoying Expressing”
Our key factors in sustaining this ecosystem is STORYTELLING and

Together these factors sustain the creative ecosystem for joyful creations – where unknown miracles await.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR and FOUNDER
Innovator, Principal Facilitator
A foundation in Psychology taught attention to detail, critical analysis, and a firm base in academic reasoning.
As a researcher and lecturer in the various topics of Psychology for more than a decade; human learning and behaviour has been a fascinating and wonderful playground in discovering innovative learning methods.
With a passion for writing and penchant for inner explorations came the culmination and founding of SoulArist Creations – a venture focused on enhancing and empowering self-expression and communication. With this came the launch of various creative writing programmes, yoga enrichment and leadership classes.
Some unique and relevant knowledge and skills that shaped an innovative approach to creativity:
Internationally Certified Yoga Instructor – Malaysian Association of Yoga Instructors
Certified Hypnotherapist – National Guild of Hypnotists (USA)
Trained in Non-Violent Communication - Malaysia
Trained in Emotional Freedom Technique - Malaysia
M.A. Psychology (Behavioural Neuroscience) – U. Nebraska-Lincoln, USA
B.Sc. Psychology – U. Utah, USA
B.Sc. Communication Disorders – U. Utah, USA
Beyond certificates and accomplishments lies a very important and expansive quadrant of life found only through self-discovery, creative expression and unceasing wonder of life. And so, began Phase II, a decade long journey into meditation and self-realisation; which offered an enriching EXPERIENCE in inner growth and strength. With this came greater appreciation and gratitude for all LIFE that is present in nature, art, dance, food, health, and our overall wellbeing – INSPIRATION in the ordinary, LIFE became my MUSE. As such, it has moulded me into a rather unconventional facilitator with an unusual perspective in creating holistic, organic and relevant training modules and workshops for better engagements and outcomes.
It has been a blessed life, having received tremendous lessons and gifts. It is a wonderful opportunity to share these gifts and life hacks with the world and watch as WE expand together; creating waves of change one ripple at a time.
