The Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir: Seeking Confidence

October 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

In this two-hour session, we’ll consider the impact of self-doubt in our lives with a series of open-ended, exploratory writing prompts.

When did the inner critic first show up for you? How did you respond over time?

What experiences in our lives have given us self-confidence, and how we can move towards a freer, more buoyant presence in the world?

The “Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir” series will continue with monthly writing workshops through May, in the beautiful Berkshires of western Massachusetts.

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 is focused around emotions that come up in every person’s life, offering 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.
