Writing the Journey to Womanhood
Monday, Sep. 14, 2015 – Monday, Oct. 19, 2015
05:45 PM – 07:15 PM
Recall and honor the transformation from girlhood to womanhood. What were our emotional responses to each stage of our growth? How have our personal experiences defined us and helped us grow into the unique individuals we are today? What needs to be recreated or restored in our lives? What legacy can we create for the next generation as we become elders in our community?
Using instructor-generated writing prompts, the group will explore these questions as participants remember and examine rites of passage. Although sharing is encouraged, it is never required.
