The Museum of Broken Relationships, with UCLA & Healing, present . . .
Therapeutic Writing Tour
at the Museum of Broken Relationships
Join us at the Museum of Broken Relationships for a guided therapeutic writing tour. The tour includes a walk through the Museum to find objects and stories that speak to your own experience of relationships that have come and gone—whether person, place, or thing. The objects and stories on display can help inspire closure for your own past relationships. After the tour, poetry therapy facilitators Jennie Linthorst will guide you through a journaling exercise to ground your insights and learning.
You may also bring your own memorabilia related to broken relationships to inspire your writing. This is a safe, supportive environment; no writing experience is necessary.
Join us on May 20 with Jennie Linthorst, MA, CAPF from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

This is for them! Let me know what you think! I look forward to hearing from you. The Grand Performances…
