About This Class
What You Can Expect
You can expect an hour of writing and sharing and learning. You can expect community and healing and realization from you visualizations.
All sessions would begin with a breathing exercise, lasting about one-two minutes.
I will establish that this is a safe place to explore and set intentions, write, and even share, if inclined. In order to do this, I will instruct on mouth/nose cleansing breaths as I share my ideas about the power of words to heal. I wrote my masters’ thesis on this subject and combined literature, religion, history, and sociology to explore how words heal past hurts and create an avenue for healing and wholeness. I will speak of my findings, that words and community, when combined, heal. I will then move into the writing prompt.
Zoom Link will be sent with the registration confirmation.
