Therapeutic writing has many major healing benefits, especially for those who have experienced a traumatic event.
Expressive writing can have a significant impact to the recovery process. In fact, participants in a study who wrote about their most traumatic experiences for 15 minutes, four days in a row, experienced better health outcomes up to four months later (Baikie & Wilhelm, 2005).
Another study tested the same writing exercise on over 100 asthma and rheumatoid arthritis patients, with similar results. The participants who wrote about the most stressful event of their lives experienced better health evaluations related to their illness (Smyth, Stone, Hurewitz, & Kaell, 1999).
Putting pen to paper however, can be one of the biggest challenges. There is something quite powerful that happens when you can start to write, as you release the pain and suffering that has been so deeply positioned.
It is as if, when you write, it is slowly, sometimes painfully being drawn out of your inner self and into the world of release. That can be a very difficult transition to make, but one of the most empowering and powerful as you honour your story, because you deserve the Write to Heal!
Join our Writers Circle
Weekly Write to Heal Circle where we gather with other survivors of trauma in a safe space to honour the power of the story from life’s difficult and complicated realities.
We free write together in response to exercises chosen to elicit deep-heart writing and to help heal with the power of the pen.
Learn to trust the flow of your own writing, and receive feedback about the power of your words in a supportive, transformative, and survivor-centered community.
There is a real air of strength, when survivors of all forms of trauma, come together to unite and support each others Journey to Healing.
Our weekly writers circle is held in the beautiful 37 acres STEER – Resource and Wellbeing Centre at Tondu Farmhouse, surrounded by 14 acres of Woodlands for natural therapy to help heal.
Every Thursday 10.00 am – 11.15 am.
