Don’t Believe Everything You Think:
Change Your Life by Managing Your Mind

Saturday, June 10
Buchanan Chapel

Spend a day learning to expand your repertoire of responses to life’s challenges by utilizing the highly effective and easily accessible strategies of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).

ACT is a fresh approach that offers concrete strategies to help manage and reduce struggle, avoidance, and being “stuck.” You’ll leave with specific applications to enrich your day-to-day living in ways that will surprise you.

Composing Our Lives: A Journal Writing Workshop
with Carol LaChapelle

   Thursdays, May 4 to 25, 2017
   6:00-7:30 p.m.
   Boyle Conference Room
   Preregistration is required

Journal writing is generally understood as the personal, private writing we do to better express and understand ourselves. When we focus the writing, we can use it to make important decisions, record our stories, create goals, explore our spirituality, and manage the major transitions in our lives.

In this workshop, there is no direct reading from what people write. Instead, we talk about the process, the efficacy of personal writing, and the usefulness of different journal-writing techniques. People will leave the workshop with specific tools and guidelines for maintaining a regular journal-writing practice

Our instructor, Carol LaChapelle, is a writer, teacher, and the author of Finding Your Voice, Telling Your Stories. She has taught writing and journal writing workshops for twenty-five years in a variety of adult education venues and for professional audiences--including teachers, clergy, and therapists. 

Workshop limited to 15 participants
Cost: $250
Register online here or call the Replogle Center at 312.787.8425
