Am I? – A Writing Series About Identity and Change

 

Do you ever feel you don’t know who you are? Or who you thought you were no longer fits? We have many identities: one you might have in your family, or others give you, one in your studies, or in the music you love. But we aren’t static, and nothing’s locked down. Like staring into a kaleidoscope, it can be disorienting, but also, maybe, freeing. In these three writing sessions, begin to trace the threads of who you might be. Ask yourself: who am I in this in moment of transition; who am I becoming?

 

Session 1. What They Said About You (or, Whose Autobiography is this Anyway?)

Session 2. I’m Not the Kind of Person Who…

Session 3. Be Good to Yourself, Whoever You Are

October 31, November 7, 14, 2012

Wednesdays Noon-1PM

Writing in The Spirit of Connection (or, When You Meet the Stranger, Say Hello)

Who is the stranger? Mostly we think of people we don’t know, those new to us, as strangers. But the stranger is also myself when I do something out of character; I say ‘that’s not me.’ How do you encounter what’s unfamiliar where you find it? Fear? Curiousity? In this series, use writing to explore coming up against the other who is both within and without, and saying hello.
