This class will create a safe, open space for participants to write about old or new pains or loss or happy moment needing to be brought back in … sadness mirrors joy. Led by various volunteer facilitators, each session will take a different approach to the topic. Time will be given to write and share stories if desired. Weather permitting, some sessions may be held outdoors.
This program is presented free (good will donations accepted at the door) but registration is required. Sessions are held the second Saturday of every month, 1 – 2 pm.
Today’s session will be led by Jan Newport.
