Hair – An exploration of our roots, identity and the power of transformation
A Growing Forward Through Writing Workshop with Dr. Stacy
As India Arie so eloquently sings,”I am not my hair”. And yet, there is so much our hair says about our sense of self and how we communicate who we are, what we stand for and where we are in our lives. Join Dr. Stacy for this special Growing Forward Through Writing Workshop, where we will explore our roots (pun intended) and how we want to show up to grow forward consciously in a way that reflects our truest selves.
Date: September 26th, 2018
Time: 7:30 – 9:30 PM
321 Carlaw Avenue, Suite 209, Toronto
What it is:
Growing Forward Through Writing is designed to teach you to use expressive writing as a tool for your own personal healing. Just as one might develop a meditation or yoga practice, expressive writing is a special technique that, once made available to you, can help you to cope with stress and emotional upheaval you are currently experiencing, or to heal old wounds and clear up patterns that are no longer serving you.
In a safe, supportive environment you will learn to explore writing in a new way that has nothing to do with style, grammar, spelling or how “good” you are. Under the guidance of Dr. Stacy Thomas, Clinical Psychologist and Author of The Growing Forward Journal, ,you will be taken through the key steps and exercises of developing your own healing writing practice, the beauty of which being that you can then take it with you anywhere, anytime.
This workshop does not require any prior experience with writing. It is for anyone pulled to writing in some way, whether you like to journal and are curious about exploring ways of expressing yourself or are simply intrigued by the idea of starting to write. However, this is not a class to teach you how to write—this is a class to teach you how to help yourself heal—using pen, paper and mindfulness techniques.
What to bring: Please bring a notebook and your writing utensil of choice–pen, pencil, feather quill–whatever brings you joy!
