Exploring our life stories from the perspectives afforded by age helps us to better understand the value of those experiences, leading to improved health and resiliency.
Sharing those stories is also vitally important, not only for our own well-being, but to strengthen our relationships with others and create ties of compassion between us.
Writing them down captures snapshots of our culture and preserves them for future generations.
“…you so inspired me to write the stories of my life. I loved your soft yet enthusiastic approach, your stories, and your prompts to motivate us. You were exactly what I needed to get me started, and although I am very much a beginner I look forward to learning more through any workshops you may give.” C. Ward
That’s why I am thrilled to be starting another series on life writing for seniors, beginning October 27, 2015, this time in Riverview, NB.
During this series of six half-day workshops to be held at the lovely Parkland seniors’ residence in Riverview, I will show seniors how the techniques employed in the craft of writing and storytelling can help them explore, examine and embrace the nature of their own personal stories.
Each workshop builds upon the one previous so participants should commit to attend all six sessions.
Registration is limited to 25 participants, ages 55 and older.
