Begin Again, on paper–here's how to take part
Introducing "This is What I Learned", a yearly magazine collecting reflections on what we discovered about ourselves in and outside of therapy.
I have an exciting invitation for you.
I’m launching a yearly (for now) zine under Begin Again called simply This is what I learned. This is a place where we can collectively reflect on what we’ve discovered over the past year through our process in and outside of therapy, witness each other, and truly learn together.
So if you’re reading this email, I’d love for you to contribute to it.
Why? Because I believe writing is one of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves. Whether we’re gathering our thoughts on paper or reading someone else’s experience, writing is purifying. Stories heal. My own journey and the very existence of Begin Again are testament to that. And as powerful our individual processes are, we're meant to heal in community. We're meant to see each other, learn from each other, hold each other accountable. This is attempting that.
My plan is to get this zine published on paper, so you can order it for yourselves or loved ones. And to potentially have an online space where stories that didn’t fit the page count can also shine.
I’ve already extended this invitation to people I’ve worked with individually or at my workshops, but I would also love to hear from you.
So if you’d like to contribute (which I really really hope you do), you’re welcome to write, draw, and/or paint your experience (anonymously or not). I’m also happy to support you with any editing you might need—although the goal here isn’t literary excellence, but earth-shattering authenticity. I think this could be really wonderful.
The final deadline is Nov 20.
So I’m challenging you to contribute. Use this opportunity to share your process and be seen in your strongest, vulnerable, and wise self.
If you think that sounds appealing, respond to this email and I’ll send you more details.
Lots of love,
