Writing to Heal Workshops

The Northern Virginia Retrouvaille Community periodically holds Writing to Heal Days in combination with the final post session.

Writing to Heal Days will take place on Saturdays December 9, 2017 from 8 am to 4 pm. More dates will be available in 2018.

From 8 am to 12 noon, couples completing their posts will have a wonderful opportunity to complete a healing and enrichment activity called "Retrouvaille Challenge". Post sessions 11 and 12  will be held from 1 to 4 pm.
