Writing is Good Medicine

Research shows that writ­ing can be pow­er­ful med­i­cine. The lung func­tion of asth­ma patients improved sig­nif­i­cant­ly when they wrote about the most stress­ful event of their lives. Those with post-trau­mat­ic stress dis­or­der expe­ri­enced a decrease in symp­toms of anx­i­ety and depres­sion. In this work­shop you will learn what makes writ­ing med­i­cine and cre­ate med­i­cine for your­self. Focus on devel­op­ing self-trust and intu­ition through expres­sive and reflec­tive writ­ing exer­cis­es; the approach­es are intend­ed to help break­through repet­i­tive jour­nal writ­ing habits and renew con­fi­dence and joy. No pri­or writ­ing expe­ri­ence is necessary
