Writing Toward Healing is a retreat/workshop offered by Carol Henderson for adults experiencing loss: of a loved one, a way of life, one's health, a job or any other grief.
Through writing in response to carefully selected prompts in this safe environment, we will gently reflect, remember, and reconsider. We will honor our lives and loves ones, re-imagine our experiences, and discover inner resources we had no idea were within us.
Research shows that writing about deep and difficult matters can improve our immune systems and offer healing perspectives on our lives and struggles. No writing experience necessary. Sharing is voluntary.
Wednesday, August 19, 1:30pm to Thursday, August 20, 1pm
Retreat/workshop is held in Well of Mercy Chapel and includes an evening labyrinth walk and overnight accommodations. Those wishing to extend their retreat should call the office to determine availability and make a reservation.
