Write Your Life Story (A 6-Week Guided Autobiography Workshop)

Leigh Morrow and Lily Bengfort, trained and certified Guided Autobiography instructors, lead participants through themes that tackle the richest part of our history- themes such as family, our work, health, death and  forks in the road that changed our life direction. They use priming questions with each class that help unlock and illuminate memories of events once known but often filed away and seemingly forgotten.

Writing and sharing life stories with others is an ideal way to find new meaning in life and to put life events into perspective. While connecting with one another on their journeys of self-discovery, participants feel enlivened by the group experience and gain a greater appreciation of their own lives and of the lives of others.
