“I was inspired to learn of the tool and the capacity it has to create opportunities for self awareness, growth and change; it has been life giving from the perspective of giving something of significant worth to me, to my life and inviting because it spoke to me in a way that nothing has before — Life Source Writing has invited me to be a partner in self discovery and healing. I feel like I have taken a huge step in my own self awareness and growth. I so look forward to more “ah-ha” moments that I am confident will happen through “getting to the page!” Catherine Simunovic, Social Worker
