EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL, WHAT’S YOURS?
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why The Caged Bird Songs
No one can tell your story but you. Writing is magical it helps release pent-up emotions that keep us stuck. “As I journaled about my thoughts and feelings regarding my lost love, I began to feel lifted and healed. When I set out to find out what happened to him, I found myself in the process.” Heddy Keith, author of Through It All: A Memoir of Love and Loss, The Men I Chose To Love and Lessons Learned.
“Nothing Ever Goes Away Until It Teaches Us What We Need To Know” Pema Chodron
Journal writing is therapeutic. Expressive writing is the tool for healing emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Once on the page, emotional pain is released. Studies show that 20 minutes of journaling can increase the immune system and lower anxiety, stress, and induce better sleep. Journal writing uses reflection so the writer can receive mental and emotional clarity, validate experiences and come to a deeper understanding of him or herself.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
- Expressive writing techniques
- Types of journal writing
- Writing prompts
- Benefits of expressive writing in releasing emotions
Participants will meet 4 Thursdays from 6:00-9:00 pm
