We all hold stories in our body waiting to be told. In this 4-session workshop, you’ll be guided to heal a part of yourself through the power of storytelling. Each session will include writing exercises as a group to unlock what may be hidden, while between sessions you’ll be given exercises to make the most of our time spent together. If you’re ready to explore storytelling as a healing method, join us and write your way to a lighter state of being!
Session 1 - Thursday, February 28th: Tell Your Story Using a Memory in Your Body
This session will delve into how to access a story that your body has been holding onto. You will be guided on how to access that memory and write about it. At the close of class, you will be given an exercise to complete before the next session.
Session 2 - Thursday, March 7th : Explore Your Healing Using Pictures
We will be using physical imagery to dive deeper into story. In this session you will need to bring a photograph or be guided to bring one to mind. This session will build off the previous one, by addressing your story in a more 360-degree view through guided writing. At class end, you will be given an exercise to complete before the next session.
Session 3 - Thursday, March 14th: Release Your Pain Using Letters
A practical and intimate way to write the challenges of our story, we will use the power of writing letters to release what has been uncovered; this session will build on the previous two. At the end of this session, you will be guided on how to begin to anchor your healing as well as given an exercise to complete before the final session.
Session 4 - Thursday, March 21st: Giving Thanks and Grounding Your Healing Using Ceremony
In our final gathering, we will look back on what we’ve uncovered and ensure it’s grounded in new learning through the practice of writing gratitude. We will celebrate the courage to take charge of your healing using story in a new way. And, we will end our time together with a special ceremony.
