Join an intimate circle of women for a journey toward self-healing and empowerment through written expression. This is a free intro to the ongoing 16-week series, continuing on Tuesday evenings (weeknight is flexible and depends on participants' availability) from 6:30 - 9 p.m. Classes do not build upon each other and can be taken out of sequence.

The workshops include check-ins; guided visualization; inspiring writing prompts; and exercises designed to connect us with the creative, the divine and ourselves through writing, optional sharing of writing and dialogue. No writing experience required!

For these workshops, Marn Norwich fuses decades of experience as an intuitive energy therapist and writing workshop facilitator/professional writer.

Workshops empower women to connect with their creative selves and inner knowing while giving and receiving support in a safe, welcoming environment.

The free intro is generously hosted by Vancity and will be held at the Vancity Community Stage, at 1675 Commercial Drive, on Tuesday September 10, 2019, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.

“ Something truly magical transpires through Marn's facilitation. She leads by example, responding thoughtfully to each contribution, holding space, and validating where we are in our healing journey. Her intuitive, attentive approach creates a nearly palpable sense of safety and connection in the room, transforming strangers into a circle of trust, support, and inspiration...Attending her workshops is easily one of the best things I've ever done for my well-being, for my love of writing, and for my sense of wonder and appreciation for women.”
