The Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir: Seeking Joy

June 21 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


In this first session of my new series, “The Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir,” join me on the Summer Solstice to remember some of the high points in your life experience, when you felt most joyful, energized and alive. As always in my purposeful memoir workshops, we look back in order to understand the present more fully, and to envision the future we want to live into–in this case, a future filled with more happiness and joy.



The “Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir” series will continue with monthly writing workshops, September through May, in the Berkshires and online.

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.

Mark your calendars for these Berkshire sessions, which will also be available online:
