TTN (V) - Thrive: Healing Through Writing Dec 5 (7 pm ET)


Healing Through Writing:
Gratitude Journaling for Happiness

With Kathleen Volk Miller

Monday, December 5, 2022
7pm to 8:30pm eastern time

Members:  $10     Non-Members:  $18



Science proves writing can improve overall heart health, brain health and the actual healing of physical wounds.  Writing has been found to reduce anxiety and depression and enhance our ability to cope more effectively with stress.  We will use healing-through-writing exercises to begin our journey to a new perspective on life events. We will learn about the science that supports our ability to learn, grow, and heal through the act of expressive writing. This practice makes the most of the brain’s neuroplasticity and writing as a catalyst for positive change. 

As one previous workshop attendee stated:  “What has impressed me most is Kathleen’s steadfast belief in the intrinsic value of writing and in its efficacy in improving the human condition. This belief, propelled by a good deal of enthusiasm, contributes to an extraordinary writing experience.”

We hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be an engaging discussion, reinforced by writing exercises.
