Thanks so much to Jennifer for leading us on a rich, evocative journey.– Zara Raab
You’ve really created something special! This process has awakened all my senses, and I think added some new ones! Slowly crawling out of that deep well of fear, allowing the words to spill off the paper and fly out to the circle of welcoming co-conspirators; to be heard, is that really my voice? And then, to take in their voices, your voice, like a sponge, I don’t always hear the words but absorb the kind reverberations. Someone has listened, heard, offered kind and generous feedback. The words have been caught and held. This is a new exercise, like learning how to walk or talk or feed oneself. But this time, it’s safe to fall. My heartfelt thanks to a wonderful teacher!– Audrey Schoenfeld
I’m still breathing in the potency of Friday’s sharing. Everyone’s so beautifully present, each of us in our own extraordinary way. Jennifer, your ability to deeply hear what’s been said, what’s not been said, and then to reflect back the next deepening question is a great gift. Thank you for all you’ve done to polish this gift, and for offering it so generously. Thank you.– Mary Kate Jordan
Yesterday’s workshop was amazing! I am getting back to writing after a hiatus (work, kids, life!) and your workshop was just what I needed. Thank you so much for your welcoming spirit and meaningful writing catalysts.
