Explore life’s high and low points through the practice of purposeful memoir, saluting the positive and transmuting the negative.
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.
In-person sessions at the Church on the Hill Annex in Lenox, MA. More information and registration available here.
