Please phone or visit the ROPL (248-246-3700) to register; space is limited. No writing experience is necessary, and the workshop is free to the public.

Letting go

"Letting go is not giving up. It’s about surrendering any obsessive attachments to specific people, outcomes, and situations. It means showing up every day in your life with the intention to be your best self, without expecting life to go a certain way. Detach from what you think every aspect of your life must look like in order to be 'good enough' for you." ~Marc and Angel Chernoff
