Writing for Resilience

Shifting our attention from the busyness of our day-to-day lives, we bring our focus to the present and to what matters most. We reflect, discuss, write and share. Our writing remains private. What we share, if we wish, is our experience – what we noticed and learned; what we wonder about.

We enhance resilience and well being through our writing. The prompts are  designed to strengthen a mindful connection with our inner selves and allow private expression of our deepest thoughts and feelings. The group’s structure naturally creates supportive connections with others.You’ll find all this and more in each Writing for Resilience workshop.

You get to focus on your writing. There’s no need to figure out what to write about or how to get yourself started. Plus you get the best of both worlds: writing privately, but in the company of others.

I facilitate:

  • A brief meditation to bring our focus to the present moment
  • An insightful discussion of our topic
  • A writing warm up
  • Writing time
  • A supportive exchange about our experience with the writing

We meet online using zoom.us.

No prior writing experience or skills are needed. This is personal writing. You are the only audience.

You’ll leave the workshop feeling renewed, refueled, motivated, focused and hopeful.

Find out for yourself why Writing for Resilience is the best bargain on the internet!
