From Empty Nest to Enchanted Forest:
Discovering Possibilities As Kids Grow Towards Independence
From Empty Nest to Enchanted Forest: Discovering Possibilities As Kids Grow Towards Independence
-An empty nester and/or the parent of a teen, college student, or young adult who is becoming more independent
-Looking for an inspiring, empowering way to navigate this stage with enthusiasm and confidence
-Seeking to embrace this new phase of life with vitality, purpose, resilience, and connection
Join with kindred spirits and like minds for eight sweet weeks of exploration designed specifically for parents who are adjusting to an evolving role and identity as children become more independent. Each week, we’ll focus on a particular theme, a quality that parents can cultivate as they undergo this new phase of life. With imaginative journaling, guided meditation, creative writing exercises, SoulCollage®, poetry and short prose readings, and interactive activities and discussions, parents facing this transition will find community and develop the capacity to be self-therapeutic as a result of their own writing process.
Goals of our writing circle:
-To recognize, honor, and allow complex feelings surrounding change as we adjust to our transforming role as parents
-To experience nourishing writing practices and other beneficial self-care methods as we navigate this challenging transition
-To share and discuss the emotions surrounding this phase of parenting in a safe space, while being bolstered and encouraged by others undergoing a similar journey
-To develop the first steps of an appealing, exciting plan for self-discovery and personal fulfillment as this new chapter begins
-To fully embrace this new stage of life and its evolving definition of parenthood!
This series was developed in consultation with the Therapeutic Writing Institute and will be conducted under the Amherst Writers & Artists Method. We look forward to writing with you!
