Guided Autobiography workshop

Tuesdays, May 4 and 11, 7-8:30 p.m.

Guided Autobiography offers a facilitated process in which to explore, reflect upon and integrate one’s life story. Useful for adults navigating times of transition in life, or simply as a means to embark on a deeper process of self-discovery, this is a personal journey taken up in the company of supportive people.

Each week participants write a two-page story on a particular life theme. Through the process of sharing one’s own and responding to others’ stories, participants find a sense of perspective, appreciation for their own strengths, re-discover creative and previously overlooked opportunities and experience a sense of connection with others.

Although sessions include resources or creative tools to explore one’s history, writing skill is not a focus for this group. Limit: 6 participants.

Virtual Visit: Museum of Everyday Life

Wednesday, May 12, 7-8 p.m.

Join curator Clare Dolan for an online tour of this unusual and amazing place, which has as its mission “a heroic, slow-motion cataloguing of the quotidian — a detailed, theatrical expression of gratitude and love for the miniscule and unglamorous experience of daily life in all its forms. We celebrate mundanity, and the mysterious delight embedded in the banal but beloved objects we touch everyday.”
