Join Allison McDonald, freelance writer and writing workshop facilitator, for an evening of writing and exploring inwards. Healing Through Writing is designed to teach you to use expressive writing as a tool for your personal healing. Just as one might develop a meditation or yoga practice, expressive writing is a special technique that, once made available to you, can help to heal old wounds and clear up patterns and emotions that are no longer serving you.
This workshop does not require any prior experience with writing. It is for anyone pulled to writing in some way, whether you like to journal and are curious about exploring ways of expressing yourself, or are simply intrigued by the idea of starting to write. However, this is not a class to teach you how to write—this is a class to teach you how to help yourself heal—using pen, paper and mindfulness techniques.
We will learn to explore writing in a new way that has nothing to do with style, grammar, spelling or how “good” you are. You will be gently guided through the key steps and exercises of developing your own healing writing practice, which you can then take with you anywhere, anytime.
Note: Participants please bring paper or a notebook and your writing utensil of choice–pen, pencil, feather quill–whatever brings you joy!
