Writing Stories from Our Lives

  • Arlington Center 369 Massachusetts Avenue Arlington, MA, 02474 United States (map)

Focusing is very much an artistic process—moving us towards what is surprising and revelatory. In this workshop we will explore how memoir (freshly recollected history of one's life) and Focusing (a way of freshly revealing oneself to oneself) can work synergistically. We will be writing recollected stories from “prompts” for 8 minutes a piece, and sharing them (without critiques) in small groups.

With Julian Miller

Julian A. Miller is the author of Breaking Through , The Conquest of Aging, and I Should Praise. He is a poet, writer, and a long-term tai chi teacher. Focusing and its relationship to writing has intrigued and engaged him for the past three decades.
