Explore your own unique story through the powerful process of guided expressive writing. Led by poetry therapy facilitator Jennie Linthorst, each month’s session is centered around a life theme and geared towards deepening our self-understanding. Writing prompts and the reading of related poetry will inspire your own poems, prose, and/or journal writing to come forward on the page. A safe place for writers and non-writers alike to write freely without critique, our focus is on honoring the insights and compassion the process brings forward for each participant.  


Jennie's group was one of the best things I have ever done in finding out who lives inside of me.” – Greg L.

"A brilliant process. It helped me discover, clarify, and validate a profound life experience. I learned something invaluable about myself. Such a blessing." 
- Bonnie W.
