Writing as medicine: for survivors of childhood abuse
2 hours online
By Donna Jenson

Buried under our traumas there runs a deep wellspring of expression and creativity waiting to be tapped into within a circle of survivors writing together. My healing path from incest is filled with writing experiences both alone and with others as far back as the 1970’s.

The workshop format is designed for fostering both personal exploration and the creation of community with an amalgamation of two primary activities:
1. Writing and reading our writing.
2. Mindfulness practices to stay grounded.

Through the combination of these two we can move in and out of the myriad of emotions and impressions our experiences have placed within us to find the joy and strength of our true selves. Writing prompts are offered and participants write within the safe container of the group.

My teaching philosophy in leading workshops specifically for survivors is to see each person as unique and entitled to a safe and supportive environment where their writing is both received and encouraged with positivity. In a culture where many survivors are not believed (and often rejected) it is critical to confirm and affirm that what each narrator has to say is worthy of our undivided attention.

There are threads of common purpose for writing within such a group. We catch the undercurrent of our minds, spread it out on the page and see what we make of it to:
1. broaden self-awareness,
2. pour out feelings and emotions onto paper,
3. reclaim or preserve memories of ourselves, people, and events,
4. sort out thoughts and clarify ideas; and,
5. reap the wisdom of the unconscious.

Participants will receive a free gift – the first chapter of my book, Healing My Life from Incest to Joy.
