Our community, Retrouvaille of Northern Virginia, will be
hosting a Writing to Heal Day on Saturday, January 31st
The purpose of this day is for you to work on your marriage and discover the healing power of writing. We would personally like to invite and strongly encourage you to attend this Writing to Heal Day. When we made our Retrouvaille weekend ten years ago, we had no idea of the impact that dialoguing and, in particular, writing would have on our marriage. The growth and healing that we have experienced has truly been remarkable.
We ask you to consider writing for yourselves, not necessarily to become presenters, but to continue the progress and growth that you began on your Retrouvaille weekend.
Here is an overview of the day:
8:00 Coffee and Continental Breakfast
