Purposeful Memoir as a Quest for a Thriving Future: Family Stories
November 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
On the heels of the American Thanksgiving holiday, and as we prepare to move into the winter holiday season, join me on a thought-provoking quest to explore your most intriguing family stories, and the characters that animate them.
What family stories did you grow up with? How did these stories shape your identity? Now as an adult, which stories do you value and want to pass on to upcoming generations? Which stories may be better left on the compost pile of history?
In a lively 90-minute live online workshop, make use of the techniques of purposeful memoir to engage with an open, inquiring mind into family stories—from the past as well as the present, thinking about how these stories can provide a valuable bridge into the thriving future we all desire.
Whether you are already embarked on a memoir project, or just want to spend some productive time writing about your life in good company, this transformative series of workshop sessions will give you new insights and entry points into your life story.
Each session offers open-ended writing catalysts that will get you thinking more deeply about both the high points and the challenges of your life experience.
Optional sharing, using my time-tested protocol for positive, non-evaluative peer feedback, will offer opportunities for deep listening to self and others, as we honor the commonalities and differences among those in our circle.
