What’s the difference between a writer and someone who doesn’t write?
Everyone has a story inside. A writer is someone who gives her/himself permission to write.
In this ten-week workshop, we will dare to dive into our own hidden, buried or obscured stories to better understand who we are, where we came from and where we’re headed in our path to self-understanding and awareness. We will give ourselves the patience, time and permission to access deep memory by exercising the imagination to recover, reclaim and re-imagine the lost and elusive narratives of our often wounded psyches to uncover the hidden truths that historical racism and generational trauma have had on our lives.
The craft of writing frees the subconscious through a gradual process of deep reflection and honest self-examination when unconstrained by self-censorship and self-doubt. The workshop provides a nurturing and communal atmosphere conducive to mutual support, healing and collegiality which tempers the isolation frequently experienced in the solitary act of writing.
Prompts are generated at the end of each session to activate fresh and unexpected ways to interrupt habitual patterns of thought that hinder intuition and imagination as well as the ability to discover one's right to write!
