Unearthing Our Stories: Journal Writing

In his Inaugural Address, President Biden asserted, "We shall write an American story of hope, not fear.  Of unity, not division.  Of light, not darkness."

Now is our time.  We will unearth these stories from within us, whether they be American, Swiss, or Kenyan.

We will look at our fears, our divisions, our darknesses, in order to write them into stories of hope, unity, light.

The workshop will have four parts: what is journaling, what is narrative, what is the unconscious, then how to share our light through story.

"For there is always light, / if only we're brave enough to see it / if only we're brave enough to be it" Amanda Gorman, Inauguration Poem, 'The Hill We Climb'
