We are important really, and the details of our lives are worthy of being recorded. Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down The Bones

This is an interactive workshop. Throughout the session you will be encouraged to do some simple writing assignments. To participate, itís important that you have a journal, a pen and some stickers. Stickers help us to tap into our inner child. And that is the part of us that loves to receive rewards for doing special assignments. Stickers are a fun way to reach and honor our inner child. No matter how old we are, it feels good to give ourselves these rewards. So, give yourself another one.
