Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
This workshop is designed to introduce students of all levels—from non-writers to professional wordsmiths—to the art of spiritual memoir. When we learn to tell the whole truth about experience, to discern our own soul’s odyssey, we come to understand the mythic dimension of our personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions and so-called mistakes.
Through writing exercises, storytelling and group interaction, we investigate the mysterious connection between the person we believe ourselves to be and the internal witness who sees beyond the conscious mind into the secrets of our hearts. By putting our feelings down on paper, and learning to shape life’s raw materials into art, we discover that our challenges are also our greatest sources of wisdom, and that even our darkest (or most unexpected) interludes carry within them the seeds of redemption.
