Give yourself the gift of an afternoon with Scott. Greeted on the spot with a big bear hug (if you want one), this man radiates love and light and fosters a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. He’s also not afraid to take you gently, with guidance and wisdom into some of the murky, darker things that we all must navigate in this very human existence - fear, shame, forgiveness, empathy, compassion. The energy of the group was so safe and nonjudgemental. It was paramount to the kind of writing he helps prompt you to excavate from within. The flow of his workshop was almost effortless in the way we spent time writing, sharing and writing some more. I left his workshop with a full heart, many wonderful connections and so much more clarity around the work I want to do in order to continue to heal.

Open, honest writing changes lives, especially the life of the writer. Many studies have confirmed what those who keep a journal already know: a consistent writing practice can improve our physical, mental and emotional health.

Writing clarifies. Writing empowers. Writing heals.

In this workshop, author and love activist Scott Stabile will guide you through writing exercises designed to help you unlock deeper truths about yourself, so that you can approach your life with a clearer and more expansive understanding of who you are and what you need in order to live a more peaceful and fully realized life.

I had no idea of the level of connection, insight and action that would be inspired by one afternoon workshop with Scott. Through love, candid conversation and creative exercises, I emerged ready to take on my fears and excited to make progress toward my dreams while gaining a new-found support network in the wonderful people I met during the workshop.

Here are some of the themes we'll focus on:

* Developing a new relationship with fear so that it no longer controls us
* Embracing vulnerability and overcoming shame
* Using empathy to deepen connections and invite forgiveness
* Working with anger so that we can release it
* Discovering our most authentic selves
* Recognizing love as our greatest healer

Whether you write every day, or have never used writing as a tool for personal growth, you will benefit from this opportunity to connect deeply with your inner voice. The focus here is not on grammar or technique, but on honest and brave internal exploration, and the belief that writing of this nature can lead to self-discovery and personal empowerment.

If Scott comes to your town, GO to his workshop. Drop everything and GO. You will walk away feeling more aware of yourself, and most likely more at peace with yourself. I sure did. The writing exercises are exceptional, but there’s something about Scott specifically that blew me away. Such wisdom and compassion. And he’s really funny too. Like I said, JUST GO. You will be so grateful you did.
— Jenny K.

Along with the targeted writing exercises, Scott will lead class discussion and share the unfiltered, compassionate insights to which his many readers and listeners have become accustomed.

Scott's workshops are always intimate. You'll have ample opportunity to ask questions, share your experiences, and connect with other open-hearted, courageous souls. Absolutely no writing experience necessary to benefit from the insights you'll discover in this workshop.

Please bring a journal or notebook, and above all, a willingness to be honest with yourself.
