“Telling Your Story” Guided Autobiography Classes
Wednesdays this Fall, register to join us from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. for a special class with the Rev. Mary McKnight, Certified Instructor of Guided Autobiography. This course encourages us to reflect on our spiritual and mental growth as part of our Living Well series.
Life is a story, with all of its ups and downs; challenges and discoveries. Guided Autobiography offers a series of themes and unique resources to help participants recall, organize and write their stories, two pages at a time. The seven-week process often allows participants to gain new perspective on their lives. Sharing parts of their story in a small group committed to confidentiality can bring insights not available from simply writing or journaling.
Guided Autobiography is a 45-year-old research-based program that has helped many people to recall and share their life stories. This class is for YOU if you want to write your stories, even if you have never thought of yourself as a “real” writer. Mary McKnight is a retired pastor who has led many small groups, including writing groups and retreats. She knows from experience that being in a Guided Autobiography group can be a rich and quite meaningful experience. The stories generated from the class could well become a legacy gift to hand down to your family. After all, who wouldn’t treasure a few pages written by one of their great-grandparents?
