|I Have to Choose: The Shimmering Moment of Deciding to be Who I Am (and What to do about It)What happens when we decide to be authentically who we are? The decisions become clear, and fear drops away, or at least, it stops stopping us. Using poetry and writing, find what helps bring the things that will guide you into the light, keep you courageous, and imagine yourself living toward your own vision. This is a collaborative workshop with Ronna Bloom, the Poet-in-the-Community at U of T, and Cheryl Champagne from Health Promotion Programs.Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
The last session of “Writing in the Spirit of Connection” is Thursday October 25, and you can still come. The first session of a new series at Hart House starts next week. Everything is on this page. Keep looking. You can register now!
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.

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
