Register here to be sent an invitation to the online meeting closer to the date.

The only consistent thing is that everything keeps changing. When life feels out of control, or when our situation is constantly changing as it has been during this pandemic, what can you do? How do you focus on what you can control so you can feel in charge of your responses?

This 1-hour virtual workshop will help you move from feeling vulnerable to feeling empowered. The workshop format will be a combination of journaling and sketching exercises, as well as storytelling. You will be encouraged to share your responses only if you choose to. 

Each participant should come with paper or a journal and a pen or pencil to write and draw with.
