February's Workshop

When journaling for healing and hope in our lives – and when looking to cultivate a journaling habit – it's important we learn how to write from a compassionate place and listen for (and to) the Voice of Love. 
 
In February, in a month focused on love and romantic love, writing from a place of Love is going to be our focus. We're going to take any hurting, aching parts of our hearts and mend them with the Loving words we pen.

During our session, we're also going to explore some of the obstacles that can make this difficult for us. If you've ever had a difficult time with the phrase “self-love”… well, we're going to go there and have an opportunity to rewrite some of the unhealthy narratives we might have placed around this idea so that we can find ourselves and our stories “re-storied” to Love.
 
*Reminder: Only Pen & Mend Collective members receive an email with the replay and journal prompts. If you are not a member, please only join if you can make the session live.

“I journal all the time and didn’t know if I was going to learn anything new. But I loved the reflection questions that you posed to us...

- Heather, former workshop participant

And the care ideas for after the class and suggestions for transitioning out of the journaling experience were so so helpful. I landed in some really helpful new places through the session and afterwards with follow up work that I don’t think I would have gotten to without your great reflection questions.
Thank you so much!"

“Thank you for the gift of your time and guidance tonight. It was just what I needed, and I didn’t even realize that I needed it...

- Deborah, former workshop participant

When I feel anxious, I can feel it in my lungs. It’s like there’s a lion sitting on my lungs, and I can’t get a deep breath. I felt that way for a few days. And I don’t anymore, and I didn’t by about half way through our time tonight… I really really appreciated this time.

DO I NEED ANY PRIOR JOURNALING OR WRITING EXPERIENCE?

Nope! Just an interested and willing heart. Writers and non-writers of all experience levels are welcome and can benefit from these workshops.


WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THE DATE AND TIME? DO YOU OFFER RECORDINGS OR REPLAYS?

Workshop recordings are available exclusively for Pen & Mend Collective members and are not included with a one-time pass. If you can't make the workshop live, consider signing up for a monthly membership to access these perks and more (and even save $). Learn more here.

CAN YOU E-MAIL ME THE PROMPTS?

Unfortunately, not with a one-time workshop pass. Prompts are another perk reserved exclusively for the members of the Pen & Mend Collective. Sign up for the collective here


I DON'T IDENTIFY AS CHRISTIAN / I'M UNSURE WHERE MY FAITH STANDS AT THE MOMENT. ARE THESE WORKSHOPS RIGHT FOR ME?

While I personally live and write from a Christian faith perspective, and my writing practices are informed by my faith, all faith backgrounds are welcome.

 
I'VE ATTENDED A WORKSHOP IN THE PAST. WILL THE CONTENT BE THE SAME?

Each workshop format will be similar in layout and practice, and you might notice some overlap in tips and strategies, but each month's theme will be slightly different in content, offering a unique experience each time.


WHAT IF I REGISTER AND THEN CAN'T MAKE IT. WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

I get it. Life happens. And sometimes we just plain forget (which is why I'll help by sending a few reminders). Unfortunately, there are no refunds for missed sessions. Instead, your payment will become a credit that may be applied to a future session.
