Writing Awake: Spiritual Memoir as a Healing Path Weekend of August 29-31 , 2014

$405.00 – $1,750.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

This transformational weekend introduces students of all levels to spiritual memoir and writing as a path of self-knowledge. When we learn to tell the whole truth about experience and to discern our own soul’s journey, we come to understand the mythic dimension of personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions, and so-called mistakes. Through writing exercises and group dialogue, students examine their inner lives as doorways to transpersonal wisdom, beginning with early biography, through emotional maturity, adult and family life, rites of passage, loss and growth, as well as treasure troves of must-tell stories. The objectives of this course are radical truth telling, increased mindfulness, and increased skill in writing. When you tell the truth, your story changes. When your story changes, your life is transformed.
