Put Your Heart on Paper: The Workshop™

Put Your Heart on Paper: The Workshop™ teaches you how to use the power of the written word to:

  • Build relationships
  • Create lifelong bonds
  • Heal emotional wounds
  • Give an incomparable gift to the people you love

If you sometimes feel disconnected in this fast-paced world of ours, getting reconnected is as simple as a piece of paper and as near as your pen.

This is a hands-on presentation. Participants get to put the principles to immediate use. Put Your Heart on Paper: The Workshop™ is particularly effective as a team-builder at conferences and retreats. In Greece, at the Skyros Center, hiding notes of compliments created a buzz that made people smile, and permeated the entire two-week session, not just in my workshop group, but spread throughout the entire holistic center.

With Pen in Hand: The Workshop™

With Pen in Hand: The Workshop™ is a healing workshop, especially for those who are dealing with trauma or emotional loss, or comforting or counseling those who are.

You will learn to:

  • Record your thoughts in Real-Time in order to get grounded when your head is spinning
  • Write an imaginary conversation and see where your pen takes you
  • Use Rapidwriting and Twilight Journaling in order to break through emotional roadblocks
  • Gain perspective and integrate painful experiences into your life, whether the events you need to heal are recent, or wounds from long ago

    As an hour presentation or full-day workshop With Pen in Hand is both inspirational and practical.

    With Pen in Hand is particularly useful for anyone going through a transition in his or her life–from losing a job, to living with a serious illness, to a death of someone close.

    With Pen in Hand is appropriate for Veterans’ Groups, Compassionate Friends, Domestic Violence Groups, Divorce and Beyond.

    It includes a special section on Discernment, the five-step ancient tool for decision-making, because sometimes it is difficult to make decisions when you are in crisis.

Writing on Both Sides of the Brain: The Workshop™

If your employees procrastinate and stall about getting work in on time, messing up the schedules of the rest of the team, this workshop gets at the root of the problem (hint: it’s not what you think).

Writing on Both Sides of the Brain: The Workshop™, teaches you to:

  • Separate your writing from your editing
  • Create and capture moments of inspiration through the 3B’s
  • Write with flow and without stress following the 5R’s
  • Talk back to the internal Critic reining you in

The bonus is that when people find out what is holding them back in writing, it often spreads over into other areas of their life as well.

This workshop will revolutionize the way you think and the way you write. After taking it, you will save time, avoid frustration, and overcome procrastination. You will learn to write clearly and concisely so that your writing is easier and more productive, and create a more professional and friendly tone in all your work.

In addition, there is a whole section on effective e-mail writing and when not to send an e-mail.

Three weeks ahead of Writing on Both Sides of the Brain: The Workshop™, I collect writing samples from the group attending, as well as examples of the best work of the company. This gives me a good idea of the kind of writing the company is doing, and the major strengths and weakness: what’s working, and what’s not working. All class exercises are based on your own writing. You will return to work with tools you can put into practice immediately.

“After taking your WBSB workshop, I not only wrote a ten-page paper I had been putting off, I managed to use the principles you taught to get my storm windows up in time before the winter winds.”
