Strengthen your spiritual core while exploring the power of self-care. This six-week class invites you on a journey to a greater sense of purpose and self-worth. Using Women Writing for (a) Change® practices we will focus on writing both during and outside of class as a means of discovery and affirmation of who we, as individuals, truly are. Join us as we learn to locate the sacred in all that life brings.

Week One: Learning to Love Ourselves
We begin the journey of learning to love ourselves. We shift our focus from our imperfections to the gifts that we have, we make friends with our Inner Critic, and we explore the power that positive affirmations hold when practiced.

Week Two: Self Care - Is an Act of Love
We begin creating a daily self-care practice that supports our journey.  Learning to LOVE ourselves requires practice, and through the power of self-care, our gifts begin to emerge.

Week Three: What do our Stories Have to Say?
We look at the stories we tell about ourselves. Are we allowing our wounds or our gifts to define who we are, and how might we reframe our narrative to reflect best the person we are learning to love?

Week Four: Our Gifts are Sacred Treasures
We reflect on the gifts we have discovered and how they are the sacred treasures of our souls. Through daily self-care practices, we learn to view ourselves as sacred, and someone worthy of our love.

Week Five: Living into our Dreams
We ask the question— What if our dreams were a journey and not a destination, what would we dream? We explore how our dreams give meaning and purpose to our lives; and through learning to love ourselves, we allow ourselves to dream.

Week Six: I Carry My Light into the World
We celebrate the gifts we have discovered, the struggles we have overcome, and allow ourselves to dream...as we carry our light into the world.
