Develop your writing as a spiritual practice with these drop-in sessions. We will write spiritual memoir “seeds” from prompts based on a monthly theme, which participants can then develop if they choose. There will be opportunities to share (but not critique) our work, bringing our creations to life beyond the page. Together we’ll participate in generative silence and celebrate the sacred nature of our life stories.
