The “Write” Way to Survive a Divorce: A Workshop to Heal and Move Forward
Oct 01, 2013 03:15PM
If you are struggling with grief, fury, fear, or disappointment over the end of a relationship the solution may be to go deeper in rather than distancing yourself and burying your pain. Learn to direct your feelings to the page, help keep negativity from affecting your health and happiness.
Whether the loss is fresh, happened in the past, or is soon to come, this writing workshop helps participants find grace in transition with exercises designed to promote authentic forgiveness, feelings of self-worth, and renewal, while also helping us recognize our gifts from life’s experiences, even if those gifts are nothing more than hard lessons that help us grow. You often cannot change painful things that have happened, but you can change how you frame those experiences and shift your perspective to reclaim balance once again.
The value in this seminar is not just the writing and getting our feelings unstuck through the written word, but in sharing our experiences with a community of sensitive individuals who have similar emotional struggles. Healing comes gently but firmly as we realize we are not alone and life is filled with beauty and love as long as we are open to it.
Ginny East, ERYT 500, MFA Creative Writing, ReFlex Director, will lead this workshop, which will be held on Mondays from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, November 4 through December 2, at the Heartwood Retreat Center, 17505 Waterline Road in Bradenton.
