Starts Tues, June 30th (6 virtual sessions Tuesdays and Fridays, ending July 28th)
Our stories help us to understand who we are. Within each of us is a hidden wealth of wisdom and insight. Our stories reveal what we know and value. What gives your life meaning? What has shaped you? As we re-member the moments in our lives when we felt a deep connection with the sacred, or when we stood in awe and were transported beyond ourselves, we put words to what we believe to be important, to what has motivated and transformed us.
Writing activities will focus on values and experiences that give meaning and a few writing techniques appropriate to this kind of project. There will be no critique of our writing. Sharing is optional, and may include reading what you have written, sharing a drawing, or whatever else you choose to communicate your story. Listening is the gift we will give to each other along the way.
6 sessions: $275
