Soul Writing Circles – Three part class series for our Active Retirees Club (ARC)

What is it? A weekly in-person community Soul Writer’s Circle that brings members of the community together, so they can use the joint space to write. The method is based on the guidance of Rabbi Tamara Miller who will facilitate the writer’s circle by providing a meaningful prompt using Jewish texts. This prompt then encourages the individual to write freely in an unconstrained way. Participants will be encouraged to read their writing out loud to the group.

What is it not: It is not a place to critique someone’s writing style, thoughts, or to give opinions on someone’s actual writing, it rather is a safe shared physical and spiritual space, where people that usually wouldn’t write, are given this opportunity to take pen to paper and to physically engage in the cathartic and explorative writing process.
