Writing To Release: Narrative Medicine
Tuesdays Evenings, 6pm-7:30 PM
Workshop begins September 10, 17, 24 and October 1.
Workshop teacher: Marianne Rogoff
The term "narrative medicine" refers to the idea that writing down our stories, especially what causes us the most grief, has the potential to release the hold it has on our health and well-being. These Tuesday evenings will be time set aside to express what ails us, by responding to prompts from poetry and writing freely, followed y optional discussion of what emerges, without critique. We'll decide after 4 weeks if we want the group to continue. Drop-in welcome as space is available.
Dr. Marianne Rogoff is the author of the memoir Silvie's Life, which has been optioned for film, translated into Portuguese, and taught in ethics courses at Sonoma State University and Napa Valley College. She has taught Narrative Medicine and Grief writing courses at Dominican University, Book Passage, College of Marin, Compassionate Friends National Conferences, Bookshop Bivar in Lisbon and elsewhere.
