Guided Autobiography - GAB 2

This class came out of a desire of students to continue on after GAB 1, to go broader and deeper and to start learning more about writing as a craft.

In this course, we continue on with new and more challenging life themes and prompts while adding “Stylistic (writing) Challenges” in each class to practice.

As  with all my classes, I adjust this course materials to best meet the needs of the students. So no two classes are exactly alike. Some students have been known to take GAB 2 over several times, each time experiencing new insights.

  • Classes are 2 hours with a 5-10 minute break.
  • Weekly one-hour Word War Sessions are optional (but highly recommended — many people get their homework done during these sessions)
  • Maximum 8 participants (minimum 5)
    Expect to do at least 1.5 to 2 hours of homework per week.

PRICE: $149.00 US

Guided Autobiography - GAB 1

Guided Autobiography is a method developed by Dr. James Birren over a period of 40 years to help people document their life stories. Several years ago, I took a GAB course and enjoyed it so much, I sought out certification to teach it.

Over eight weeks, I guide my students through themes and prompts to help evoke memories of events. Each student writes two-pages on that theme, brings that story to the next class and reads it to classmates. It’s a beautiful way to connect with and discover self and others. I’ve witnessed the powerful catalyst of GAB for improved self-confidence and communication.

At the end of the course, you’ll have seven short stories of your life.

  • Classes are 2 hours with a 5-10 minute break.
  • Weekly one-hour Word War Sessions are optional (but highly recommended — many people get their homework done during these sessions)
  • Maximum 8 participants (minimum 5)
  • Expect to do at least 1-2 hours of homework per week.

FAQ

These are questions that have come up or that students have indicated they would have liked to have known. 

If you have other questions, please send me a message (see below). I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

How do I know I'll get what you promise?

That’s a little tough to answer. I can tell you that all of my students have finished feeling anywhere from satisfied to ecstatic about the learning, progress, and tangible outcomes they achieved. (please seem my testimonials on my Home page) If you attend classes and do the homework, I believe you’ll be very happy.

If a student has a problem, I always suggest that they contact me directly and immediately. Each need and situation is different, so I have no hard and fast rules, but I will do everything in my power to resolve the problem and try to make things right. 

Do I have to use my webcam during class? Why can't I just have audio on?

Yes. I do require students to come to class with Webcam and microphone. I’ve found that being able to see and hear each other is essential to creating camaraderie and community within my classes. 

There are times when people choose to share very personal stories, and it’s important that we can see each other and know that there are other human beings on the other side. 

I do understand that some people aren’t comfortable with this format, but it’s something that (so far) students have been able to quickly overcome.

I can get courses online a lot cheaper. Why are you more expensive?

If you’ve found comparable courses for cheaper, I encourage you to enroll in them. 

I do suggest, however, that you make sure that you will get real-time and real-person interaction and attention. While I do have lessons (providing information) that are pre-recorded, the real magic in my courses is time we have face-to-face in real-time with other classmates. I pride myself in creating a space where people love to share and exchange ideas. In my work as a professional corporate trainer, my greatest talent was in facilitating groups and creating a synergy that I was told was palpable. 

How come your courses are so cheap?

One person’s cheap is another person’s expensive. 🙂 

I want to touch as many lives as possible with my courses. Helping people capture their life stories with the written word has become a passion of mine. It is something that leads to great personal development and discovery for my students and offers entertainment, education, and inspiration to others now and in the future.

Frankly, my husband and I are living a not extravagant, but more than comfortable life that we love. And, we’ve chosen to live in an area where cost of living is reasonable. As a result, I don’t have to charge a fortune for what I have to offer. I guess that sounds really granola-head, hippie-dippy, but it’s the truth. 

Do you offer any discounts?

All students who have completed a course with me are entitled to a 10% discount on all future courses. That includes the Guided Memoir Class. 

If you’re a prior student, please message me before registering for a class. 

Do you offer scholarships?

Unfortunately, at this time, I don’t offer scholarships. However, it’s in my planning for next year, so please watch this space or subscribe to my newsletter to keep up on what I’m doing.
