WRITING TRAUMA: A WRITING WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN OF COLOR (INCLUDING TRANS IDENTIFIED PEOPLE OF COLOR) - OAKLAND
As women of color, we often endure painful and traumatic experiences due to our race, gender, sexuality, and other factors related to our identity. Our pain is intensified when we are asked to remain silent about these experiences to “preserve” the family or the community.
As a result, we can carry deep unhealed wounds that affect how we move through the world. Writing our pain and experiences and sharing it with others is one of the most important things we can do to heal our selves. Many of us yearn to have our experiences witnessed and validated in a safe space.
This workshop is an opportunity to investigate our wounds through writing and sharing in community. We will use writing exercises, partner and group sharing, and community building activities to reclaim and reframe traumatic experiences.
REFUND POLICY: Full refund of ticket cost if cancelled by December 15. 50% if cancelled by January 1. No refund for cancellations after January 1, 11:59pm.
