Rincon Bohemio and Cielo Portátil Organization Independent Cultural Initiative, through Proyecto Sur Los Angeles, is inviting you to participate in the Intensive Workshop for Self-Knowledge Through Auto-biographical Writing, whose motto is: "Those who dare to do their own writing will be able to identify and reduce the suffering caused by certain emotions or events experienced throughout their lives. This is a workshop for those who are interested in writing but, at the same time, want to transform their inner life as well. Writing is a power, and it is a power which belongs to everybody.
During this workshop, the participants will look and reflect within their own lives guided by the materials and questions that have been created for Proyecto Sur Los Angeles, in order to affect a search that will allow them to have an encounter with their own inner self. This workshop consists of a profound and healing journey that—once it has been learned—the participant will want to do it again and again for the rest of your life. Allow writing to transform you! ”
