"I'm excited that my friend Dima is launching this new e-book on therapeutic writing as I have been the beneficiary of several of her writing exercises at various retreats we have co-led, or in small groups we have both been part of. I think this work is very powerful and helpful for self-care and personal and spiritual growth. I've done it for myself often in times of stress and transition, or stuckness and know it provides the space to allow my deepest process, my sacred Self to teach me and offer me the wisdom I need."
Rev. Sharon Moon, Ottawa, ON.
"One of JournalTalk's upcoming guest experts just released a new version of her book, Feeling, Writing, Empowering. After reading through it, I must say it is very comprehensive and includes some excellent example exercises. Bravo, Dima!"
"This manual, "Feeling, Writing, Empowering" accomplishes what it is intended to do - and more. I participated in a workshop on Therapeutic Writing facilitated by the author and we utilized this manual. It contains all of the information you need to begin (or continue) your writing experience, and helps you write creatively. I was going through a life transition at the time of the workshop and this manual helped me write therapeutically about my reality. I would highly recommend this manual either to a beginner or to a person who continues to keep a journal. This manual will empower you to keep writing."
