Do you believe in magic?

I do.

And it comes in the form of

words.

Your stories and your words, they matter. If you’ve been silenced or shut down for using your voice — remember that your writing, in whatever form it takes, is valid. 

I have witnessed the power words can have on individuals and how much healing and recovery can come from the page.

The proof is in the stories we tell to ourselves.

The truths we force ourselves to face through the page because at least that’s easier on the heart than facing it head on.

The page reveals what our heart wants to say, but can’t speak aloud.

What's more magical than that?
Art is about energy and time and discipline and self-criticism and pursuit and letting go. Art is not about being. It is about becoming.
— Ladelle McWhorter
 

Does this sound like you?

 
"I have something to say, but I'm not sure what it is."

"I’m not a writer. I hate writing!"

“I like to jot down notes about my day, but that’s about it.”

“I’m not sure about this journaling thing.”
 

It’s okay if it does. Because all of those comments were made to me at one point about the topic of expressive writing. But the common denominator between all of them? They trusted the process I taught them and each of them created a beautiful writing practice that helped them achieve their goals.

 

There’s a central truth to the act of writing: everyone can do it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a doctor, lawyer, social worker, sanitation worker, zookeeper, {insert any other profession}. It doesn’t matter if you’re 10 or 22 or 48 or 90. It doesn’t matter if you are lower or middle or upper class. Writing doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t judge.

 

Fact:

You are the expert of your own trauma and writing has the power to help you through the pain because it has

No bounds.

No limitations.

The Write to Heal: Expressive Writing Workshop is a 4-Week course in which I teach and demonstrate how to establish an expressive writing practice.

  • I will show you how guided journaling/writing can specifically help you work through whatever trauma or emotional upheaval you may be experiencing through the actual practice of writing.

  • You will be exposed to several different types of journaling methods that you can then cherry pick to take forward with you as you develop your own journaling practice.

  • During the workshop, we will get together twice a week on a live call where I lead you through the practices and reflection. As your instructor, I’m not exempt from the practice either. I will be writing to the prompts at the same time you are.

  • Unlike workshops that you may have experienced in the past, sharing and commenting on each other’s writing is not required or encouraged unless you feel inclined to share. What we will share together is a sense of community and connection as we all work individually toward our own writing goals.


 What you’ll get from this workshop:

  • Access to the online classroom

  • 4 Weeks of lessons and writing exercises

  • 8 live calls with me (or access to replays if you can’t make it live)

  • Access to Q&A’s and flash sessions with me

  • A better understanding of how expressive writing/journaling works and how it can help you with your healing/recovery

What you won’t get:

  • A quick fix to whatever is ailing you

  • A writing course focused on craft, genre, or technical aspects of writing

  • Therapy

What you may get (no guarantees though!):

  • An obsession with notebooks, pens, pencils or apps that facilitate journaling

  • A better understanding of who you are and where you want to go and what emotions you want to work through

Hi, I'm Jade!

I cringe when I hear people say that magic doesn’t exist. Why? Because it absolutely does exist. I truly believe that words and stories change the world. I don’t think there’s anything more magical than that.

I’m living proof that healing can start by simply putting the words from my head onto the page.

And you can be proof too if you’re ready to harness the power of words.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How is this any different from just freewriting in my journal?. . .

I’m going to be honest with you - I have a bit of an issue when it comes to the way society perceives journaling. It’s as if it’s become this fancy new “buzzword” that people throw around in an attempt to give advice. The problem is that these well-meaning-advice-givers aren’t giving you the right directives on how to achieve your desired outcome.

Sure, freewriting and journaling with no intention or direction can be helpful, but it doesn’t have the same life-changing, healing properties as journaling with intent.

With intention, you can direct your writing to help you achieve whatever goal you’re trying to reach. Why? Because once you have your intention in mind and you have a framework to guide your writing, the process begins to work for you.

Do I have to share what I write? . . .

Absolutely not! Sharing is optional and only if you're comfortable doing so. The point of this workshop isn't to critique or learn from others. The point is to learn for and from yourself.

Twice a week calls? That seems like a lot... . . .

The actual writing exercise portion of the class takes place over these live calls and lasts about 30 minutes. You can jump in and then back out after the writing session portion if you're short on time!

What if I can't make the live calls? . . .

That's okay! To be honest, you'll get more out of the workshop from being on the calls live, but it's not a make or break issue. If you can't make the calls, they will be recorded and available for replay the next day. Then, you can come back to them anytime.
