Truth and Permission Writing the Story That You Must Tell

CREATE NARRATIVE ART

Who are we to write our story?  Must we ask permission to write the truth? The act of crafting engaging stories elevates them beyond valuable journaling to a place where they become a vital and dynamic tool for self-discovery, clarity, resolution, and healing. Yet the daunting questions of permission and truth-telling can keep the writer from moving into a place where voice, story, and clarity are free to emerge.

Join award-winning author Elissa Altman as she teaches you how to marry writing to contemplation and create narrative art from your experience. You will:

  • Explore the creation of engaging personal storytelling and memoir.
  • Focus on overcoming ancient shame narratives and make meaning out of chaos.
  • See the truth and healing potential in your words.

Learn to move beyond the constraints of fear to a place of profound awareness that the stories we carry are ours, and make us who we are. Please come with a willingness to unravel issues of truth and permission on the page, and an acknowledgement that the impulse to tell one’s story must be honored. 

NOTE Please bring a journal and pen or pencil.
