10:45am: Finding Courage workshop - by Stephanie Dale

Stephanie DaleCourage - it eludes the best of us at the best of times. This gentle, robust workshop is for people who long for something, yet for any number of reasons cannot, will not, or should not step forward into that passion. This workshop has two parts: Seeking Clarity: The Longing is the Path and Resolution: Dare to be Powerful. If you have the longing, you have what you need to fulfil your vision. Step one, name it. After that, join us and find out how to use writing to uncover the words you need to give shape to the life that is waiting for you.
Stephanie Dale is an award-winning Australian journalist and author. In 2014 she founded The Write Road, a therapeutic writing initiative for people in rural and remote areas of Australia. In 2017 she launched Walk & Write, combining her passions for writing and pilgrimage. She is currently undertaking PhD research into writing for wellbeing at QUT in Brisbane.
