Also-known-as Writing Workshop: The Primal Wound hosted by Heather Schultz in NYC

  • 11/20/2017

Writing Workshop
The Primal Wound hosted by Heather Schultz November 20, 2017 6:45pm-8:45pm


In her book The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child, Nancy Verrier discusses how, in order to heal as adoptees, we must fully understand, and acknowledge, the pain associated with experiences of abandonment and the loss of birth parents.

During this two-hour writing workshop Heather Schultz will lead an intimate discussion on Part I of this book followed by healthy writing exercises to release negative emotions and restore integrity of the self. Familiarity with the book's themes and content (chapters 1 - 4) is recommended. Thanks to a donor, we will be able to reimburse the purchase of the book to workshop participants! Simply bring your receipt for physical or digital copy of the book to the event.

WHEN: Monday, November 27th, 2017 6:45 - 8:45pm
COST: FREE for members; suggested $5 for non-members
