The Writing Shed
What is it?
At The Writing Shed, I help you practice expressive writing for personal growth, creativity flow, pleasure, and emotional ease. Its flagship class is the Journal to the Self© workshop. As a gentle guide, I teach poetry and journaling tools to help you prioritize the inner world as your greatest masterpiece, befriend creativity wounds, and investigate inner critics. Growth in this course comes from out-growing the pots that contain your light and courage!
Why journal writing?
The Journal to the Self class teaches 18 different tools. They stimulate both left and right brain activity and are geared towards a variety of temperaments and personalities. The tools help you see that journaling is:
- a creative outlet for you to let go and open up,
- a friend to help you make meaning of life’s challenges (Imposter syndrome? Suffering without community? Silence from the muses?), and
- a bridge to greater mental clarity about your projects or life.
How do I get involved?
