Free intro to Women’s Writing as Healing workshop series

Are you seeking a safe, supportive + creative community in which to grow and flourish?

Would your writing benefit from inspiring themes and prompts?

Are you working through a trauma or circumstance?

Do you long to deepen your spiritual connection?

The Women’s Writing as Healing Workshop series responds to the needs of women to connect to each other in a close and supportive circle. It fosters personal growth, healing and spiritual insight. It inspires writing, creativity and self-connection.

Join an intimate circle of women for a journey of empowerment through written expression. This is a free intro to the ongoing 18-week series, continuing on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 9 p.m. Classes do not build upon each other and can be taken out of sequence.

The workshops include check-ins; guided visualization; inspiring writing prompts; and exercises designed to connect us with the creative, the divine and ourselves through writing, optional sharing of writing and dialogue. No writing experience required!

For these workshops, Marn Norwich fuses decades of experience as an intuitive energy therapist and writing workshop facilitator/professional writer.

“ Something truly magical transpires through Marn’s facilitation. She leads by example, responding thoughtfully to each contribution, holding space, and validating where we are in our healing journey. Her intuitive, attentive approach creates a nearly palpable sense of safety and connection in the room, transforming strangers into a circle of trust, support, and inspiration…Attending her workshops is easily one of the best things I’ve ever done for my well-being, for my love of writing, and for my sense of wonder and appreciation for women.”
