An online-based course of three monthly sessions beginning in October.

Monthly Zoom Meetings with Online Resources and Forums

Free Introductory Session: Saturday, September 19th

10 -10:45 am (PDT)

Third Saturdays: 10:00- 11:30am (PDT) October 17th, November 21st and December 19th.

This series of classes is for people dealing with medical interventions, chronic conditions, or acute illness, who wish to awaken creative agency. Guidance will be given to consciously navigate challenges in the journey of being a patient. Through a variety of hands-on practices, we will work with encouraging inner resources, engaging healing imagination and evoking allies.

Writing in a therapeutic way will serve as a primary tool these sessions, but one need not consider oneself a writer to participate.

Sliding Scale- $90 – $300 for the series.

Writing Response Groups

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~ African proverb

I currently lead three Writing Response Groups. These groups serve as a sounding board, offering reflections on personal essays, memoir pieces, poems or stories. Participants are there to generate new writing, create a listening space, share and encourage one another and learn from witnessing others.

 Every 2 Weeks

Sessions are twice a month at Pegasus and Sisters Writing Studio in Green Lake and the fee is $20 – $50 per session ( 2 hours)

Contact Mary Oak to see if there are openings.
