“List Your Way to Self-Discovery” Workshop

“Listmaking is the road from unknowing to knowing. No guru necessary. No therapist. No special diet. No need to suffer. Memories deep in your consciousness will emerge to fill in the blanks.” ~Ilene Segalove and Paul Bob Velick, List Your Self: Listmaking as the Way to Self-Discovery


October 5, 2022  7:00 PM – 8:30 PM at the Royal Oak Public Library – Friends Auditorium

Everyone makes grocery lists and “to-do” lists. But did you know that other types of list-making can boost your mental health and improve life satisfaction? Personal lists can serve as tools to empower and understand yourself, help solve problems, and even serve as inspiration for longer writing projects. Join me Wednesday, October 5th at the Royal Oak Public Library for an evening of fun, reflection, and self-discovery. Bring your laptop or notebook and a favorite pen. This program is free to the public, but registration is required. To register for “List Your Way to Self-Discovery,” phone 248-246-3700. ~CL
