This 10 part writing workshop is for people with Parkinson’s and carepartners. No writing experience is necessary! Together, participants will complete simple, fun, and meaningful writing exercises, as well as take part in guided meditations and mindfulness exercises. We will tap into your inherent creativity and inner wisdom as sources of healing, strength, and community building. Come share your story and help yourself and other folks who understand what you’re going through move through challenging times.
The workshop is led by Rebecca Gifford, partner in Parkinson’s with her husband Larry. She is an experienced writer and writing coach who knows first-hand the power of the tools you will learn. She is an author, blogger, marketing writer, and writing coach with more than 20 years’ experience helping people and organizations navigate the creative process and tell their stories. Rebecca also is a homeschooling mom to her 10-year-old son and a weekly contributor to her husband’s podcast, When Life Gives You Parkinson’s.
