Writing to Awaken: Memoir as a Path of Transformation

Aug 30 - Sep 01, 2019 Begins in 4 months
with Mark Matousek

When memoir is used as a path of self-discovery, it becomes a spiritual as well as an artistic pursuit. As you learn to tell the whole truth about experience and to discern your own soul’s journey, you come to understand the mythic dimension of personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions and so-called mistakes. Liberated from the myth that your story is you, and aware that every life narrative is a work of fiction, you are freed of the unnecessary limits these fictions impose on your life and imagination.
