These are relaxing and stimulating writing workshops. Writing as a way of healing is both gentle and effective. The goals of this introductory workshop are to:

  • Ease depression and anxiety; Maximization of resilience, development of healthy “connections”
  • Self-empowerment, increased awareness by others about the potential for recovery
