Write From Your Heart is an eight session writing workshop in which we use writing to express feelings and then share what we wrote with the group. The workshop provides a safe and welcoming space that promotes healing, support and empowerment through writing, reading our words and deep listening. It’s about self-expression, not being a good writer. It will be led by Joyce Cohen, a Certified Life Coach and Therapeutic Arts facilitator.

Each workshop starts with Joyce reading a poem or some other prompt that fires up your imagination. Then you write intuitively for 15 minutes about whatever comes to mind. Finally, everyone reads their work out loud.

The group doesn’t critique, it just listens. It’s very freeing. You’ll feel heard and supported as you connect with yourself and the others. Insight, laughter and tears are hallmarks of the sessions! It’s intimate and powerful. I hope you’ll join us.

“This was such a nice change in approach for a therapeutic outlet. Joyce has such a gentle and accepting way of guiding everyone. I enjoyed hearing everyone else’s writings. Whether we struggled, laughed or just connected with each reading I think we all looked forward to trying to process everything differently.”

“The workshop experience brought to the surface some emotions and unconscious thoughts that surprised me. That experience was in a way cathartic. The shared emotions in each of the participants’ writing was also healing. Joyce’s leadership, choice of prompts and her empathetic approach makes the experience highly recommended.”

“What a magnificent group who shared your stories in such a heartfelt way each week. Joyce thank you for skillfully providing us a safe space. The poems you chose seemed to be sprinkled with fairy dust and opened up our vulnerabilities with a pinch of magic. It was always a delight to share in the experience of what flowed from our minds onto the page.”
