Debbie Fetters (she,her)

My name is Debbie Fetters. One of my favorite things in the world is spending time with my husband, three adult children, three cats, and my adorable granddaughter, and if we can be outdoors, I love it even more. Whether in the garden, on a hiking trail, or soaking up the serenity of a national park, wilderness and the natural world is where I feel most at home.

I also love to kayak, paddleboard, read, snowshoe, listen to music, dance in my kitchen, and sing karaoke in my friends basement- smoke machine, strobe lights and all!

I was led to River Writing by something larger than myself, I call it Love with a capital L. My first experience with RW was during a Two Hours at the Table session, with eight people I'd never met, including the facilitator. At the end of the night, I knew I'd found a practice that my heart had been longing to experience my whole life. I felt safe, heard, and seen without judgement, only loving kindness.

My commitment is to provide the same safe, honest, compassionate and brave space for you that I've found. Through this practice, you’ll have the opportunity to discover your own voice , as well as the courage to say the truest things you can say today.

I will co-create a space where you feel safe, heard, seen and held throughout the entire process. I hope you learn things about yourself, and that you feel the value and gift of attentive, whole hearted listening in community, as we practice bravely befriending ourselves.

Most especially, my hope is that through this writing practice, our capacity for compassion and kindness towards ourselves and others expands, and that you deeply know and feel that you matter, and you belong, exactly as you are…because you do.
