Dr. Sherry Duggal B.Sc., N.D. will go into the physiological link between writing and healing. This workshop will provide the research and science behind why writing can be so effective in our journey towards an optimal balance in mind, body and spirit.
The creative process is therapeutic in many ways and can be included as part of anyone’s lifestyle.
This interactive workshop will enhance self development and is open to artists and non artists from all walks of life. It is great for beginning writers or those who are just interested in playing with words and understanding themselves better.

•Personalize ways to get started in the writing process
•Identify ways to enhance one’s creativity so that one can incorporate it into one’s lifestyle.

Sherry brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to her workshops . But what made the workshop memorable was her enthusiasm and the positive energy she invested in the time we spent together .
I read over one of my exercises after a lapse of two years and was surprised at how I had found a voice to express a very personal event in my life. It was cathartic and I'm grateful for the experience.
Sherry's teaching style is warm, inviting and creative.
I felt that she helped me move past my writer's block and truly see myself as a writer and an artist of words. She supported us in digging deeply into our experiences and she listened compassionately to group members stories of pain. She prompted us with fun topics such as love, and encouraged us to think outside the box as we put our stories together.
It was a beautiful experience.
