The Healing Power of Words
Come reap the benefits writing can provide—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—in this workshop in which you’ll learn and practice simple yet profound ways to use words to heal and to grow. We’ll incorporate Dr. James Pennebaker’s ground-breaking methods for using writing as a transformative process as well as a creative one. (And if you are interested, these tools can also be used to create stories, poems, and/or essays.)
This workshop is ideal for beginners as well as for seasoned writers—whether you have published widely, sometimes write in a journal, or haven’t written anything since your senior year of high school, you will en joy this experience of renewal and deepening of our relationships with God, self, others, and the world. Warning: Laughter likely. Inspiration guaranteed.
