Class Date(s)

Saturday, November 2nd from 9:30am-1:30pm

Class Details

Life in 10 Minutes classes and books, The Halfway House for Writers and Surrender Your Weapons: Writing to Heal have been used with incarcerated women, war veterans, victims of sex trafficking, seniors in assisted-living, high school creative writing students, medical students, gender studies students, yoga teachers, Presbyterian deacons, recovering co-dependents, addicts, alcoholics, budding creatives and entrepreneurs, copywriters, first time writers, librarians, and small groups gathered together in living rooms across the city.

Writing in community fosters healing and connection. When our creativity is sparked and our memories and experiences are shared, our brains are rewired for empathy, compassion, forgiveness, and reflection. Writing is a timeless and accessible vehicle for processing, bonding, and more deeply getting to know ourselves and those around us. Writing in community bypasses the technology that has a tendency to make us feel connected but in truth keeps us isolated and apart.

If you are a community member, teacher or leader who would like to incorporate the teachings of Life in 10 Minutes into the work you already do or would like to begin doing, we’d love to share with you the teachings that have supported growth, transformation and healing in our workshops for the last 10 years. Participants will come away with a new set of tools for engaging their community, offering healing, and a concrete guide for harnessing the power of writing to transform lives.
