Much healing lies in the recovery of a personal sense of deeper meaning, that capacity which enables us to endure difficult situations and find unexpected gifts.  The deepest meaning comes from mining those places we are not easily aware of.   

This time of social distancing and changed rhythms has produced physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual changes.  Perhaps you’ve been in silence or in prayer and are now ready to experience and express the changes in a new way. This series of Zoom workshops will begin with words of inspiration that will prompt you to write from the heart – sometimes through prose and sometimes through poetry – then meditate on your writing and conclude with an optional time of sharing with others. 

This is a program for beginners and those who have never written or journaled before. Each session will have a different focus and will build on the one before.

$75 for the 3-week series.  Please REGISTER BEFORE 3PM ON FRIDAY, 6/12. Registrations received after 3pm will not receive the zoom information in time to participate.

Do What I Can
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
— Emily Dickinson
