The techniques of purposeful memoir can help us to transmute the shocks of everyday life into strength and wisdom. Writing about the past, we find we have so much to learn from our moments of greatest  vulnerability.

“The wound is the place where the light comes in” –Leonard Cohen

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.

Mark your calendars for the last Berkshire session of the season:
