I’m very grateful to the fabulous Diane Gottlieb for taking time to interview me in this life-affirming conversation about writing, mental health, trauma, bodies, and the inner critic! Please do check out the interview at WomanPause. (Thanks, Diane!)
Embodied Creativity Yoga & Writing Workshop
Healing writing practice at YS Library (Jan. 15)
I’m thrilled to again offer a healing writing practice as part of the Winter Wellness series at the Greene County Library. This event is free and open to the public (21 years and older), but the librarians are asking people to register. (And we need to honor the librarians, for they are part of saving the world.) Last year, we had a great turnout—25 people or so!
Join me as we practice writing together using helpful prompts to discover and know ourselves. We’ll unmask and disarm the inner critic, and I might sneak in some drawing, too. It’s great way to start the new year!
When: Sunday, January 15, 2-4pm
Where: Greene County Public Library, 415 Xenia Ave, Yellow Springs, OH 45387
To registration, go here, or call the library at 937-352-4003.
