“It’s all in the art. You get no credit for living.”

Explore your life story with an emphasis on language and the art of story-telling. You do not have to have suffered abuse, had a terrible childhood or a life-threatening illness to write a great memoir! No one has lived the life you have. You will write moments from your life in ways that clarify your present as well as your past, and may give some insight into your path for the future. A variety of exercises will encourage you to reach down into the events of your life and find the deeper layers of wisdom and healing that may lie within them.

You Will Learn To:

  • Write your story in vivid language.
  • Show rather than tell, by using concrete detail rather than information
  • Uncover the inner meaning of significant events
  • Experience the release and the tenderness of sharing your story with others

Who Will Benefit from this Class:

Both writers and non-writers who wish to explore the deeper layers of their life journey.

Lunch: There will be a 90 minute lunch break. You are welcome to bring a bagged lunch or enjoy the local restaurants during this time.
