This Pocket Guide is written for Life Writing facilitators; and is to be used as a companion to The Life Writing Workbook. It does not repeat all that is in the workbook; but provides bullet points to remind you of how to proceed and what to cover as you facilitate Life Writing workshops. While this Pocket Guide does not contain all that is in The Life Writing Workbook, it does contain new and updated material that is not found in The Workbook. The Pocket Guide contains updated ideas, tools, and exercises, so it should serve you well as you facilitate your groups. It provides easy-to-follow agendas for each of your workshops. In these agendas, only a few words appear on a line. This allows you to take brief glances at your pocket guide as you work through the agenda for the evening. Thank you so much for facilitating these powerfully effective workshops. You and I are helping people to achieve self-love, the first step to all other forms.
To hear another’s soul into a condition of disclosure and discovery may be the greatest service that any human being ever performs for another.
