Shelf Life

Creative Bibiliotherapy Workshops

We are excited to announce that Mandy from Wordsworth books will be leading another bibliotherapy group here at the Delton Glebe Counselling Centre.

“From Loneliness to Solitude: A Creative Bibliotherapy Workshop”

How do you navigate loneliness and what makes solitude so different?

In this workshop you will learn how authors respond to these questions and how books guide us to connect with others and connect within. Using literary fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry and essays we will explore how writers have learned to cultivate resilience when faced with loneliness and offer tools and insights for readers on their own journey.  Through readings and discussion we’ll reflect on various aspects of loneliness and it’s relationship to solitude. Loneliness affects everyone at some point. How can we respond to its message?

All resources will be provided that evening – you are already prepared!

The group will run for 2 weeks on January 16th and January 23rd from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm and the cost to attend both evenings is $35.

Space is limited so please register soon by calling the Delton Glebe Counselling Centre at 519-884-3305.  Payment can be made by etransfer or you can come into the Centre to pay by cash, cheque or debit.
