WORKSHOP: How to Mentor Yourself and Write Through Pain

How To Mentor Yourself and Write Through Your Pain? Let’s Build Your Voice Together (1-hour Workshop)

Many studies have shown that writing about traumatic and painful experiences can help you reprocess what happened. You would get a feeling of being back in control of your life, freely expressing how you feel, and be able to carve your own thoughts and purposes from your own story. Your voice matters more than you think. You can harness the courage, self-love, self-worth, and compassion that are deep within you to heal and move you forward.

If you are ready to revisit a painful event in your life, the 1-hour workshop will help you with the following:

• Learn to navigate and cope with the tides of your own emotions and responses
• Learn to express and tell your own story freely
• Tools to build your own mentor roadmap so that you know what to do when you feel that you are losing control under stress
• Tools to help you build a more positive, healthier and stronger mindset through the questioning of your own negative thoughts

Ka Man Mak will be a speaker and running a workshop as part of HerStory Conference Norway. Check out her talk on ‘Breaking Free From Domestic Violence’ at 3pm, Intercultural Museum, Tøyen.
