This course will evoke your deep writing and healing to claim your unique story of recovery. You will dive into your body sensations, emotions, and unconscious memories and uncover forgotten trauma in order to write your truth. Writing Like A Madwoman™ is a moment by moment, memory by memory, scene by scene remembrance of who you were then and who you are now. A woman’s voice is the most powerful change in the world.
This eight week course activates a writing journey from your head to your heart. Writing like a Madwoman™ sets the foundation for ongoing recovery from trauma. Each week you will build the strength to write the “hard stories” through conflictual memories, feelings, dreams, self-inquiry, and self-reflection to navigate your personal story. We will use flash memoir, poetry, pictures, and prompts to break through the resistance of what is “unbearable to remember” in order to be bearable to write.
