Do you want to write your life story but don't know how to start? Or maybe you started, but got stuck, frustrated, and put it aside.
In this class I will guide you in writing your life story so you can pass on to your family your memories, beliefs and thoughts that matter most. You will get started right away, get positive feedback from me and your like-minded classmates, and stay encouraged week after week. If that sounds like the right fit, I'd be delighted to help you turn your memories into a memoir.

Once you've finished your life story, how will you package it to give your family now and for generations to come. Join Dr. Flora Brown, an award-winning author and Guided Autobiography Facilitator to learn ways to delight and gift your story.
Writing about your life helps you organize your thoughts and vent your emotions, as you search for understanding and meaning. You will capture not just what is happening in the outside world, but within you as well.
What a truly memorable day you gave all of us. You are organized, respectful, incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging, and an absolute delight. I feel honored to have been taught by you today. I wrote about an experience I've not shared before because you made the group so safe. Thank you for bringing your teaching skills to my home today to share with all of us. I know we each felt touched in a way we'd not felt before.
I had a great time! Working closely with only a small group and our impressive instructor made it much easier to do the exercises and share our work. Everyone was very encouraging and supportive of each other and there was no pressure to write perfectly or to prove one's ability as a writer. The exercises leading up to the main assignment helped trigger memories and thoughts pertaining to the theme, which in turn made it easier to write on that theme when the time came to do so. I left feeling encouraged, motivated, and excited to continue writing on my own, and even validated in my belief that my writing has merit. I would love to do it again and definitely encourage anyone who is interested to jump on this workshop. You won't regret it.
The experience of working together in a small group, helped me capture one of my personal life stories from the memories of that time. The writing process reinforced the feelings of that choice during the time it happened. Then sharing our stories as a group, around the table infused my personal experience and memories with the affirmation and self-knowledge that I do make very good decisions. The process gives me confidence for even the very hard choices that I have personally had to make. Yet now I understand that each piece of this knowing adds to my self-trust.
