Wake Up and Write! (Writing as a Path to Awakening)

Jun 12 - 17, 2016 Begins in 6 months
with Albert Flynn DeSilver

Are you ready to experience, and then write forth, the truth of who you really are? Writing is an exploration of consciousness, a practice toward deeper self-awareness, and it moves us along the path of awakening to our true nature. Many of our greatest spiritual teachers from around the world were, and are, writers. From Sappho and Rumi to Pema Chodron, Thomas Merton, Jack Kornfield, and the Dalai Lama — the written word has the power not only to inspire, but also to awaken the very best in the human heart.
