Writing Workshops

Frannie co-presents a writing workshop with master writing workshop facilitator, Nancy Slonim Aronie at the largest spiritual retreat centers in the US.

Writing From The Heart is a workshop that is a jump-start for the beginning writer and nurturing for the burnt-out professional. It is about honoring your own voice in a safe, inviting place. Nancy Slonim Aronie says, “I can’t teach writing. I don’t think anyone can. But Frannie and I can make it safe and I’ve learned when people feel safe, they go deep. The writing gets more powerful, the heart goes deeper, and the words flow faster. Getting the story of your life out of your body means you don’t have to carry the weight of it around anymore”.

When people ask if the workshop is therapy, they answer, “No, it’s therapeutic to write the truth.” Secrets fester; Truth heals. Frannie quiets the mind, heals the heart, and balances the body, with her magnificent music and guided deep relaxation meditations. Throughout the week, we will laugh, we will cry, and we will write.
