About The Event
Join us for a sunny afternoon of radical self love and #loveletteractivism!
Love letters seem to have developed a bit of a stigma these days—associated with vulnerability (gasp!), romance and strict special occasion. Not many people write them and not many people recieve them. It might feel like a pretty awkward thing, to sit down and write a love letter. Uncalled for, even. It’s not Valentine’s Day, what the heck would I be writing a love letter for?
But a love letter can consist of anything! It can be a statement of true love, but it can also be a list of the qualities you love best in a person, or an appreciation card, or a list if thank you’s. It can be an at-long-last letter. It can be a you’re-the-rock-in-my-life letter for someone who’s going through a tough time and feeling small. Love letters lift us toward the light! They help us fly! Not only is it a radical healing experience to receive a love letter, but it’s a radical healing experience to write them! Spreading a little joy, love and peace is a totally heart-opening act when we allow ourselves to be a little vulnerable. Let’s get vulnerable.
During this workshop we’ll write some break-your-heart-open love letters to ourselves because, let’s face it, when was the last time you wrote yourself a love letter? Have you ever? (gasp!) Well, everyday is a perfect day to begin a new adventure. And when our love lettering muscles have been warmed up, we’ll write love letters to our mothers, or our best friends, or the mailman, or the person who makes our bagel at Java Joe’s every morning, or a total stranger.
Peace begins in your community. Your community begins with you.
Stationary, cards, pens and radical self love pep talks will be provided. Bring an open heart and the stamina for a little world-changing, one love letter at a time.
