Writing from one’s own personal experience and her story begins a journey to support one’s own health, vision and creative inspiration. It is an act of self-discovery she picks up a pen and out spills a truth that she may not have known she was even carrying. A written truth is an awakening. A shared truth ignites a flame within the listeners to begin a journey towards her own dreams and light.

The session is led by graduates of the She Rites Program of Achieve Potential.
