Journaling: Many Paths to Freedom – Writing is an act of liberation. Words carve pathways on the page. These paths become tributaries that allow your Inner Self to flow freely. There are many ways to journal, and in this workshop, we will explore some tried and true methods along with some new ones. Bring a journal, pen, an open heart and your own, unique imagination!

Writing Forward: Telling New Stories – There are so many stories inside us. Many of them are old ones, taking up space. They’re good ones, true ones, and interesting ones, and they’ve made us who we are today. But they are more reflective of who we’ve been, rather than who we are becoming. This writing workshop will be forward-focused, allowing us to think about who we are now, and how we want to move forward into the future.
