New Work­shops from Alida Brill

Please join me in explor­ing how we can live a life beyond the bound­aries of our ill­nesses and diag­noses. Though chronic ill­ness chal­lenges, inter­rupts and fre­quently dimin­ishes the expe­ri­ence of life, chronic dis­ease can also teach us how to live more fully.

Work­shop One:

Nav­i­gat­ing Life with Chronic Ill­ness: A Tool Box

Work­shop Two:

A Nar­ra­tive of Your Own: Writ­ing About Your Expe­ri­ence of Ill­ness
The Work­shops are held in Man­hat­tan, where Alida makes her home. Space is
