The Healing Power of the Pen: Assisting Children with Writing Stories  St. Louis, MO

Saturday, October 14th, 9-3 p.m.

WRIT:765  680    St. Louis Community College, Meramec    Social Science Bldg, 205

This course is open to parents, grandparents, child specialists and educators interested in working with children to assist them in writing their stories, from their point of view. Participants will learn the basic structure of story, engage in creative writing exercises, understand first person point of view, and understand how an animal or character can “metaphorically” represent someone else and allow a child to speak through that character. The story could serve as a means of allowing a child to process life events, both positive and negative. (i.e. illness, divorce, new sibling) No writing experience required. This class instructs how to implement tools for writing with children, please do not bring youth to class. Fee: $59.           For adults 60 and over: $41.

Our bodies record the sum of our experiences. Writing allows us to make meaning out of these memories. It separates what we are experiencing or have experienced from our reaction to it. Focused writing can be used to heal and manage pain. Using various prompts, reflective journaling time, and shared conversation, you will be given tools for mining and writing your own soul story. This workshop is intended for everyone–whether you are new to writing or a long-time journal writer. Bring a sack lunch.

EQUILIBRIUM Energy + Education      Chicago, IL     (312) 786-1882

After a lifelong journey with both physical and emotional pain, Mary Byrne Eigel employed many powerful tools to heal her body, mind and spirit from torment. But it was not until she wrote about that journey in her autobiography Silent Courage that she achieved true release, and could finally claim her wellness and wholeness. In this amazing workshop, Mary will give you the tools to help you achieve your own transformation through writing. Mary says, “Our bodies record the sum of our experiences. Writing about what you remember extracts the event, and allows you to see the situation and your reaction to it as two separate things. Touching base with these moments allows you to reflect from a loving perspective, and not the fear-based perspective that operated at the time the event occurred. Through various writing prompts, ample reflective journaling time, and empowering community sharing in a safe place, you’ll walk away with a greater grasp on mining and writing your own soul story. This workshop is intended for everyone, whether you are new to writing or a long-time journal writer.” $80, members $72.
