Writing has the Power to Heal. Join us as we discover ourselves through sharing what we’ve written.

"…the only way through pain is to go through it, to absorb, probe, understand exactly what it is and what it means. Nothing that happens to us, even the most terrible shock, is unusable, and everything has somehow to be built into the fabric of the personality." – May Sarton

Writing helps us to understand who we are and where and why we form destructive attachments to certain activities or people. Through Writing to Wellness, we become aware of our battles or issues, how to accept them, and how to move more fully into a personal healing process. Healing through the written word happens when people open themselves to the power of sharing their own story with others. Through empathetic (judgment free) listening and response, people often gain the self-confidence to accept and understand their difficult issues and to process them more thoroughly than ever before.

Start today by writing about a specific event, situation, or relationship that affected you. For example, you can write a letter to your mother or father (that does not get sent) telling the parent about the best and worst things they did for you. Or you can begin by writing about any emotion you may be feeling.

Write freely, ideally for at least 20 minutes without stopping. Don’t edit. Don’t worry about grammar or punctuation or how things might sound. Simply write and see what comes out. Then join Writing to Wellness and share.

If you’d like, bring something you’ve written before to share with the group. However, don’t feel like that’s necessary, we’ll take some group time to journal too. So, make sure to bring pages to write on and a pen (or a computer). Looking forward to hearing you share!
