Facing the Sun: Creating More Joy & Peace in Your Life Through Transformative Writing
So much conflict, anger, division, bad news, fake news–how in the world can we get and maintain joy and peace in the midst of it all? How can we stop feeling overwhelmed and discouraged and afraid? By employing a powerful tool: intentional writing exercises.
These exercises work because they cause us to stop, reflect, and gain deep insights about ourselves and our natural calling to be joyful and serene. The guided writing prompts in this introductory workshop will help you to:
- Tune in to your unique “joy channel” by naming your gifts and taking concrete steps to use them in a bigger, more intentional way
- Identify and banish the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual strongholds that get in your way
- Discover the Essential Element necessary to spark joy consistently, even in the darkest times
- Immediately employ the tools, tips, and mindset that enable you to lighten up and burn bright
- Practice the principles and perspectives needed to cultivate a warm sense of calm, happiness, and purpose over a lifetime
This three-hour workshop will be part-lecture, part-exercises, and all-the-way-real. We will end by taking a 3-minute stroll to the famous Love Locks Bridge. Once there, you’ll be invited to “make your mark” on the bridge by leaving a message of importance to you (Industrial Sharpies will be provided for writing on the bridge). Those so inclined will also be invited to toss a flower into the beautiful river confluence below as a symbolic way of letting something go. From there, we’ll amble over to a nearby restaurant for fellowship and fun–and lots of laughter.

Since then, she has been invaluable in her guidance and enthusiasm for my writing project. I was overwhelmed, but she helped me focus with her honest feedback. She is genuine, wise, funny, and encouraging. I cannot stress enough the value of one-on-one coaching. If you’re looking for an inspiring mentor, you would be lucky indeed to have Lauretta by your side.
