Award-winning author and teacher Jennifer Browdy, Ph.D., offers a thought-provoking memoir workshop, “Purposeful Memoir as a Path to a Thriving Future,” at Bascom Lodge, Mt. Greylock State Reservation.

“The workshop will open up new pathways into your past while encouraging you to think more deeply about your present, and envision the thriving future you want to live into and co-create with others,”  Browdy says.

“As we align our personal histories with the larger narratives of our time and place, we intentionally awaken and deepen our capacity for spiritually grounded activism and conscious leadership in our own lives and in our communities, including the larger Earth community of which we are all a part.”

Browdy has been teaching writing and literature at the college level for more than 30 years, including 25 years at Bard College/Simon’s Rock in Great Barrington. She is the author of an award-winning guide to writing memoir, The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir, as well as her own memoir, What I Forgot…And Why I Remembered, one of six finalists for the International Book Award.

This lively workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in using personal writing as a contemplative practice, as well as those actively embarked on a memoir project.
