Youth Writing Workshop: Re-write Your Story: Writing to Heal Shame – on Zoom – Register here
In this workshop we will identify the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves.
Most of these stories are limiting and impact the way we see ourselves and others. Once we identify them, we will reclaim our rightful place as authors,
collectively creating the life and world we desire.
