Workshops


WRITE FROM THE HEART

This workshop will take participants through a series of writing exercises to help individuals realize their greater writing potential and maximize their creative energies. By creating out of our hearts—writing from our inner selves, our experiences, and what we dream—we become empowered to tap into our creative abilities and find more inspiration in our lives.

PRESERVING THE STORIES OF OUR LIVES

Sharing our stories is a way to ensure that our personal histories and life legacies will be passed on to the next generation. In the workshop, participants will reflect upon their significant life stories, celebrate their meaning and value, and complete a series of structured writing exercises to capture them.

WRITING AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

This workshop explores the idea that our creative energies lie in connection to a higher power, and proposes personal writing as a way to connect with that power, discover personal truths, and give back to the world with the gifts we have been given. We all look for ways to find more inspiration in our lives, more purpose. The workshop will provide a series of exercises to help participants tap into that inspiration, maximize their creative abilities, and plan a way to make writing part of their spiritual practice.

LIVING THE LIFE YOU WANT

In order to live the lives we’ve always dreamed of, (maybe even live a life we did not think possible!) we need to envision what an ideal future would look like, what obstacles stand in our way, and what we need to bring into our lives to make that future a reality. Using a series of writing exercises and reflective practices, this workshop will help us bring more meaning into every day, and bring us closer to living out the kinds of rich and fulfilling lives we want.

POETRY AND THE POWER OF INSPIRATION

Whether you are new to poetry or a veteran, this workshop is for you. Using poetry and a number of writing exercises, together we will explore what each of us can do to heighten our creativity, unleash our writing potential, and put a little more zing into every line we write. Plan to go home with a few new poems!
