Come reflect on a major change in your life in a three-part series using guided writing, guided calendar making, and guided book making. Bring a chosen life event, a list of related dates and a willingness to let your own creativity lead you in cherishing, remembering and letting go. You’ll reflect in your own words on your turning point, create a prim stav (a centuries-old calendar system for marking significant days), and make a small hand-sized book to hold both the calendar and your event-inspired writing.Details

Over a 3-week period, we’ll reflect on not only how we get stuck but how we can get un-stuck so that we can engage in more authentic conversation with others who have very differing views.
