Writing to Heal Workshop - Kitchener 2019
Workshop: Writing to Heal
Half-day Workshop, includes drinks and snacks
Expressive writing, also known as writing for wellness and therapeutic writing has revealed a new world to me. I’ve found that when I write about my personal experiences, goals and desires, I achieve a sense of peace and acceptance about life’s many challenges. I’ve also found that when I write for myself without listening to my inner critic or focusing on financial gain, the quality of my writing improves. But most importantly, expressive writing has taught me to be vulnerable. I’ve learned to reveal myself to myself, and ultimately, understand and appreciate who I really am.
Do you want to learn how to reflect inwards and unlock what you keep hidden, even from yourself? Find out how expressive writing leads to deeper self-acceptance and healing. In this workshop, participants will move through a series of writing prompts designed to explore themes connected to their lived experience. Using creative non-fiction and fiction, poetry and journaling, learn techniques for restorying self, explore approaches to self-reflective writing, review contexts where writing is being used for personal development, and share your writing with the course instructor and fellow participants.
