Portland Woman Writers Workshop

Nurturing Resilience: Art & Writing as Sacred Practice


2 Sundays: July 25th & August 1st 1:00-4:00pm

These Mid-Summer workshops will nurture our natural resilience and restore our connection to beauty and nature through the powerful tools of mindfulness, art-making and reflective writing.

Nurturing Resilience: Art & Writing as Sacred Practice are seasonally sensitive art based workshops that can be taken individually or as a series. They are offered over the course of two consecutive Sundays to give an opportunity for a deeper experience. These workshops are offered each season and are a basis for participants to start or re-start an arts based reflective practice that will sustain and support them.

We will soothe our souls through the sacred ritual of gathering together and using simple art making processes and writing prompts to access our creativity and imagination. We will nurture and cultivate an arts based practice that will sustain us as the season changes and the warmth of summer illuminates.


Prior to the workshop, participants will be mailed a hand-made journal, a specially curated set of images in addition to materials to use during the workshop and a short list of materials to have available in your home for the art processes.


No prior writing or art making experience is necessary, only a desire to explore your creative spirit.

Cost; $85 per individual session

$150 for both workshops (+ $15 art material fee + postage fee)
