Write to Heal

Writing to Heal can include many aspects. Expressing emotions frees up energy and can reduce stress. We can go a step beyond that to reframe situations and gain perspective. We can choose to examine our self-talk and consciously shift it. We can also affect outcomes in our lives by writing the scripts of our lives as healing adventures.

The first session will be on Increasing Resiliency, with writing exercises based on research findings from positive psychology.

The other topics are: The Body Electric, Setting Goals and Planning Actions for Our Bodies and Our Lives, My Healing Journey, and Healing Relationships.

No writing experience required. Please bring your own writing materials.

Making Flower Essences from Your Garden and Yard

Flower essences are subtle vibrational remedies that address emotional, spiritual, and mind-body issues. They are not scents, but rather a way to bottle some of the energy of favorite flowers and have access to them at any time. We’ll go through most of the steps using plants at the garden, and you’ll leave with a handout to guide you in making your own at home. Facilitated by Deborah Mayaan, MA, founder of The Desert Heals Essences. Please dress in layers for comfort both indoors and outside.
