As a writer, I have experienced healing and awakening by honoring my suffering, giving it voice, and seeing through adult eyes the dreams and disappointments of the child I once was and whose memories live within me. By bringing an intention of divine love for self and others, I have been able to imagine multiple perspectives on “my” experience, allowing forgiveness and compassion to transform emotions of anger, hatred, and fear into acceptance and gratitude. This journey was not quick or easy, nor is it complete. I spent years moving through layer after layer of processing and reprocessing of trauma and hurt. Yet the results were dramatic: liberation from depression, release of deeply entrenched negative beliefs, and even physical healing of an Irritable Bowel Syndrome that had dogged me for decades. My experience taught me without a doubt that mind, heart, and body are one, and as we begin to heal one area, all are affected.

This interactive writing workshop will be an opportunity for participants to identify areas where they might want to release the grip of the past on the present. Through guided meditation, we will access high vibration consciousness in order to act as channels, guides, and compassionate friends to ourselves on a journey into the heart. We will use writing to activate and intensify the healing process. When we write from an intention of compassion for self and other, we have the capacity to directly channel the wisdom of our higher self. We can unravel stories about the past that do not serve us, reframe and release negative beliefs about the self, and experience healing on an emotional, psychological, and spiritual level. --Robin Clarke

Excited for this.. perfect timing
Writing to Heal is postponed and will not be held on Oct. 21. This event will be rescheduled for November. OMA will announce a new date and let everyone know soon.
