Our unexpressed grief can add stress to our lives as we try to hold our life together. There is considerable research suggesting that journaling 3-4 times a week for up to six weeks about things that bother us can actually improve our immune system and reduce our stress. (Pennebaker, 2004) Bring your journal and your favorite pen and join us in learning a variety of ways to jumpstart your writing and begin to open your heart to the grief you carry. . Writing helps each of us access our unencumbered voice and authentic self, which are not subjected to cultural assumptions about what is appropriate.
We will build a trusting and supportive community together. You may even walk away feeling less alone, and a bit lighter, clearer and happier. You will be given resources for continuing the work on your own.
