Millions of people feel frustrated and discouraged with the story of their life. Years ago, that was me and I suspect it might be you too. Sometimes the people, places and events that make up our lives don’t seem to portray who we think we are. Certain negative experiences in life can cause us to shut down the vulnerable, precious parts of who we are. What we’re left with are feelings of failure and a sad sense that we are lost and can’t find our way home. . .
But I want you to know that Your Story isn’t over!
The REAL story of your life begins the moment you first become curious about who you are, deep down at the soul level.
The moment you ask, what do I really want? You have begun.
Writing provides us a portal to our subconscious where we can communicate with our soul, where we can discover our truest desire, our best gifts to offer the world, and the voice of our own truth and wisdom.
Writing Your Way Home is a healing workshop designed to unravel the misunderstandings about who we are and why things have happened in our lives, and to heal the misconceptions that keep us feeling stuck and lost. On the pages of our life story we can mine the past, present and future to uncover a more clear understanding of our authentic being. As the author, or in other words, authority of your life, you get to decide how your story will be told and how it will unfold from this point forward.
The Writing Your Way Home Workshop combines inspired readings, focused writing prompts, guided meditations, small group sharing and large group discussion that can help you:
- Make peace with the past
- Open the gateway to the Soul
- Discover a resilience you didn’t know you had
- Find the words to express yourself more clearly
- Uncover the hidden blockages to living a soul-centered life
- Transform fear into useful self-knowledge
This workshop is led by Tracy Martin, a popular empowerment blogger, author and public speaker. She holds a master of fine arts in creative writing from Purdue University and has taught writing for eight years, there and at IUPUI in Indianapolis. She is the author of one novel, Skin Deep, and an autobiographical memoir, If I Were Good.
What the Participants are Saying
I have been attending Tracy‘s Writing your Way Home workshops since earlier this year. They have been and enlightening for sure. In the first workshop I attended, we were asked to write about a memorable childhood home. That was delightful for me to picture my home of many years ago. Of of course it brought up lots of other connected memories. It was also really nice to share with other participants and listen to their stories. Tracey is a gifted facilitator. Her journaling questions are challenging as they should be, and in her gentle, skillful way she helps us all to feel comfortable with what we have written and comfortable with whatever we choose to share. Thank you Tracy for giving to us your time and love and energy.
“I found Tracy’s writing workshop randomly through Facebook, and I am so glad I did! Tracy led us through soul-searching writing sessions and created a safe space for us all to explore our deepest selves. I appreciate her thoughtfulness in choosing the class themes and I truly enjoyed learning more about myself and others through journaling. I recommend her writing class to anyone interested in nurturing their creative self, or if you just want to try something new. Thank you Tracy for creating this class and for being you!”
