Speaking and opening up about conflict-filled and wounded relationships is often a frightening process. Memoir writing and poetry offer us ways to speak truthfully and compassionately about these relationships.

Liza Hyatt and Norbert Krapf unite to share their individual stories of wounding and will enter into dialogue about our shared need to heal. They celebrate each other’s healing and help workshop participants enter more deeply into such important soul work.

Hyatt is the author of “The Mother Poems – A Memoir: The Warrior Queen and Her Poet Daughter.” She is an experienced art therapist and licensed mental health counselor. She is also an adjunct professor at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.

Krapf is the 2014 winner of the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Author Award and former Indiana Poet Laureate. He is emeritus professor of English at Long Island University and an Indianapolis resident.

“Writing can help people respond to wounds left by difficult relationships in many ways,” Hyatt said. “Through writing, we gather the details, the specific felt experience and sensory ingredients of what we encountered in that relationship. We remember what we saw, heard, touched, felt in our bodies and minds.

Past workshop participant, Jeanne Frost, described her retreat experience as , “…very relaxed.” She goes on to say, “There was no pressure to share, but the opportunity was there and most people shared their experiences. I would highly recommend this workshop for those struggling with difficult relationships. Norbert and Liza are very understanding and patient. It is the perfect environment to begin coping and healing from the effects of a difficult or complex relationship.”
