PATH THROUGH REFLECTIVE JOURNALING: with June Leavitt
Time & Location
About the Event
Unlike regular diary-keeping, we begin with writing exercises that bring our focus to a recent cycle in our lives. We note down the atmosphere of the period, the people who were important to us, the projects we did, and the sensations, images and insights that have stayed with us. We then expand upon our reflections on the period, through writing tasks that involve imagined dialogue with people that were close to us, personification of events that happened, and the chronicling of memories. These creative techniques for digging deeper into our personal experiences, through writing, and through sharing them with other participants if we care to do so, can bring new understanding, healing, and insight. Participants are asked to bring a new, five-subject, ruled notebook to the workshop.
