Celebrating Your Friendships with a Keepsake Letter

Based on my book Conversations with Well Seasoned Women, you’ll identify various friends from your life and how to celebrate your friendship with them by sending a keepsake letter. This workshop is an inspirational experience, both for the writer and the recipient. 

Three former workshop participants praise this workshop:

"Jan's class on friendship gave me new insights into the importance of the relationships woven through the fabric of my life. I appreciate the techniques she offers which gave me an opportunity to acknowledge these special relationships in tangible ways."

"I was fortunate to attend the well-framed Friendship Workshop with Jan Whalen. Jan’s process was carefully organized to help us realize, like never before, how special some people are in our lives. By the time the workshop ended, I had letters prepped and ready to send letting five people know how special they are to me and why. Every recipient loved receiving their letter! It brought amazing reunions."

"When it comes to writing, I have trouble expressing what I want to say. The depth of what I feel inside doesn't seem to come out on paper. So when the opportunity came to take Jan's class to share my thoughts with my friends, I decided to take it. The way it was organized and taught made it easy for me to come up with a whole letter to my friend. I was able to write a heartfelt and extremely moving letter to my friend who was struggling to regain her health. I didn't know if she was going to live or die. The class helped me translate my emotions into words that expressed my love for her. When I read my letter to her, the exchange between us was overwhelming. Jan made the class fun and easy and gave me confidence that I can be successful at getting my thoughts down on paper."
