“Deborah is such a thoughtful and encouraging facilitator. I’m hooked!” – Suzanne F.
In each small, intimate workshop, you will:
Read and discuss poems and texts dealing with the integration of body, mind, and soul
“Time flew by and I wish we had more time to write, analyze and discuss. Deborah guided us with a gentle hand, but her impressive writing and teaching chops were evident. I will return for more.” – Tim K.
Do writing exercises to tap into your inner creativity and develop your own unique voice
“Deborah came prepared with such great exercises to stimulate thought and start the pen moving. As my own sharpest critic, self-editing to the point of paralysis, I truly appreciated that Deborah created an atmosphere that was gentle, supportive, and thought-provoking. I highly recommend taking a Heal Write class if you have stories fighting to be released (and who doesn’t?!) but haven’t been able to take that first step.” – Jen H.
Share your writing with the group in an atmosphere of mutual support and encouragement
“It was nice to be able to express some deep emotions in a setting that felt comfortable, while also finding a lot of joy and humor amongst our small group. I would certainly recommend a Heal Write workshop to anyone looking for a safe space to examine their own lives through writing.” – Ian L.
Heal Write workshops are open to writers of all experience levels, including writers for whom English is a second language. Whether you are going through a healing process or simply looking to boost your creativity and live a healthy, balanced life, the workshops offer a break from the mundane and an opportunity to exercise your imagination in a fun, supportive environment. I think of it as yoga or tai chi for your mind – you can’t help but feel great afterwards.
Workshops take place at a variety of local businesses and community centers. I offer basic workshops on general themes of wellness, as well as workshops on specific themes. I am also available to conduct workshops for private groups. Please contact me for more information on bringing Heal Write to your business or setting up a private group workshop.
