Therapeutic writing as a self care practice
20 February (Monday)|7:30pm - 8:30pm


What is the meaning of writing in the midst of difficult times?

Every day, each of us may experience fluctuations in emotions. We may feel anxious when we don't get along well with people who matter to us, we may get agitated about the inequity in the world, we may grumble about a wrong food delivery, or we may even stomp our feet when the rain drips on our sneakers. Things can be trivial, yet the emotions being sparked are genuine.

In times of restlessness and uncertainties, in a world that seems to be falling apart, can we still write with ease and faith? How can we free our minds from worries and connect with our thoughts and feelings through writing?

Michael White, who developed narrative therapy said, “We can understand our life by putting it into stories.’’ By capturing our experiences in words, we are empowered to untangle our innermost thoughts, to understand and heal the wounds from the past, to contemplate the possibilities of the future, and to transform and liberate the unspeakable feelings.

In this webinar, Miha will introduce us to expressive writing, with his personal stories and examples of various writers. We will learn how to use writing to record life events, reflect on thoughts, recognize and manage emotions. In the process, we will address feelings about the past, the present, and the future; deepening our self-understanding and exploring the meaning of life. 

Miha will also bring us a writing exercise - you can follow simple steps to create your own story. Let's cultivate mindfulness and flourish our mind in words- fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.

**The webinar will be held in Cantonese.
