Facilitated by Kathie MacDuff
Our stories can be very healing and everyone benefits from sharing wisdom. We come to recognize that we are all experts in our own lives and we all have something to offer. Our words have power, positive power. It helps to think about how the various events in our lives have been part of a journey toward the person we are today and who we hope to become tomorrow.
Materials: You’ll need your journal and/or note paper and a pen or pencil for the first part. Your favourite imagery (whatever you have on hand: drawn, painted, printed off from Google, magazine pages, old books, scrapbook paper etc.), a glue stick, scissors and your journal or cardstock. Handouts will be emailed directly to you just before the class.
