What is Contemplative Writing Therapy?
Contemplative Writing Therapy is a practice of befriending ourselves through writing in community. We meet our thoughts, feelings and experiences with openness and curiosity and seek to give these voice. In this way, we become familiar with the creative force that shapes our perceptions and expresses our truth. We invite awareness, develop self-compassion and nurture our ability to share from our hearts.
Each session includes time for a check-in, meditation, writing, sharing, and responding. We meet online using the Zoom platform. Groups are small with up to six participants. They are suitable for beginners as well as seasoned meditators and writers.

“I appreciated the structure and the feeling of being held, listened to and seen, and of safety.”
“I appreciated the safe space to create, free of judgment and full of joy.”
“A profoundly inspiring way to explore and share the written word in a most creative and invitational setting.”
“I would recommend this group to anyone looking for a creative outlet and a safe space to dig deeper and connect within, while connecting with others.”
“The group provided a safe place to share and work through difficult emotions. These bubble up very organically but also unexpectedly, so it feels valuable and important that you know how to receive them and guide us through them.”
