– Expressive Writing Workshops in Toronto –
Expressive writing, also known as writing for wellness, and therapeutic writing, has opened up a whole new world for me. Most significantly, it has taught me to be vulnerable.
Therapeutic writing helps me reflect inwards and unlock what I keep hidden, even from myself. This has led to deeper self-acceptance and healing. Ultimately, I’ve learned that by writing about my personal experiences, I am able to achieve a sense of peace and acceptance surrounding life’s many challenges.
Expressive Writing Workshops
Are you interested in exploring the possibilities of therapeutic writing for yourself? Allison McDonald Ace, a trained expressive writing facilitator, offers “Healing Through Writing” therapeutic writing workshops in Toronto. She has two sessions currently scheduled, one on January 17, 2018 and one on February 14th, 2018.
I can’t imagine anything better than a Valentine’s Day Expressive Writing Workshop! Is your partner interested in writing too? Then make it a double date and learn to be vulnerable together.
Here’s an excerpt from Allison’s workshop:
“In a safe, supportive environment you will learn to explore writing in a new way that has nothing to do with style, grammar, spelling or how “good” you are. Under the guidance of Allison McDonald Ace, trained expressive writing workshop facilitator and published writer, you will be taken through the key steps and exercises of developing your own healing writing practice, the beauty being that you can then take it with you anywhere, anytime.
This workshop does not require any prior experience with writing. It is for anyone pulled to writing in some way, whether you like to journal and are curious about exploring ways of expressing yourself, or are simply intrigued by the idea of starting to write. However, this is not a class to teach you how to write—this is a class to teach you how to help yourself heal—using pen, paper and mindfulness techniques.”

Allison McDonald Ace is also one of the co-founders of The 16 Percent, an organization dedicated to supporting those who have experienced infertility and pregnancy loss. Roughly 16% of couples in Canada experience pregnancy loss. The 16 Percent shares these stories of loss and recovery so that others know they’re not alone.
