Guided Autobiography: Writing to Discover Your Life’s Patterns

Guided Autobiography helps individuals organize their life stories. Participants are led through themes and priming questions that evoke memories of events once known but filed away and seemingly forgotten.

Writing and sharing life stories with others is an ideal way to find new meaning in life as the uncertainties of the past, and the contradictions, paradoxes and events of life are put into perspective. Participants feel stronger and have a growing appreciation of their lives. (The Birren Center).

GAB can be a powerful catalyst for improved self-esteem, self-confidence and enhanced communication.

You don’t have to be a writer, just willing and interested in exploring memories!

Online Information Session, May 31, 2019, 12:30 – 13:30

Register for free up to May 29th
