Writing Workshop With Wendy Dwyer
Second Monday of the month 6pm-8pm

$10 at the door. No writing experience necessary. Women & men welcome.

Hello Writer Pals,

Buckle your seat belts, and bring a fresh pen! We're digging deeper this time. For those of you who have been coming regularly, I think this is what you've been looking for. For anyone thinking about joining us and learning more about themselves through writing, it's the perfect time to start.

Here's a hint - "Janet Conner was escaping a terrible situation of domestic abuse. While trying to figure out how she and her son could live and how they could eat, she realized she had hit rock bottom. With no other advisers, she listened to her own inner voice, which told her to start writing. As she did, Janet's inner voice gained clarity and strength, and she felt an incredible connection to the divine, and almost immediately miracles began to happen. 

Today, research scientists in psychology, physics, biochemistry, and neurology are providing peeks into what consciousness is and how it works. Their findings give us intriguing clues as to what is actually happening in and through our bodies, minds, and spirits as we roll pen across paper. Writing Down Your Soul explores some of this research and instructs readers how to access the power and beauty of their own deepest selves." (

We've been warming up well, but are you ready to go a little deeper? I know I finally am!

Miss Representation-Film Night
August 20th at 6:00pm 
$5 at door
The Inner Truth Project is hosting a screening of the film Miss Representation Why?  Because gatherings like these are crucial opportunities for our young daughters and friends to seek truth about their real worth & beauty.  Please check out the link below (and take the pledge!) and share this invite with women and girls (and men too) that might be interested. The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) rated the film TV-14 DL. and it is appropriate for 12 and over.  Learn more about the parents rating guide for Miss Representation here.

About The Film
Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation (90 min; TV-14 DL) uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.
In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors.
Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective.
