Healing for Bibliophiles!
I often get questions about books and other resources to recommend from people who identify as self-starters, life-long learners, and avid readers. In my own healing journey, reading and writing poems and stories were a fundamental resource for both escaping, re-imagining, pleasure, reflecting, and growth.
I later learned about bibliotherapy and my cathartic relationship with reading and writing began to make much more sense. Bibliotherapy is a creative arts therapy modality that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing and is a major self-help healing strategy for many people. So, I decided to offer a space for healing through literature centering relationships, sex, healing trauma, and mental wellness.
This year's theme is Healing and each quarter will center a specific topic:
January thru March - Healing Trauma
April thru June - Healing Emotions
July thru September - Healing Relationships
October thru December - Healing Sex
We meet on the last Sunday of each month at 2pm cst.
This Quarter's theme is Healing Emotions
