Opening the Sacred Conversation Within
Thursday, December 5, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
In her new book, Writing to Wake the Soul, writer, teacher and minister Karen Hering invites readers to awaken the “still, small voice within” through a spiritual practice of writing offered in many recent Wisdom Ways programs. Come savor food for thought about writing, the nature of language and spiritual practice, and how to engage words as bridges of connection rather than points of division and departure.
For those who wish to write, the book provides reflections on writing and spiritual practice and more than two hundred pages of meditations and writing prompts to launch or nurture your own practice at home. Other readers may enjoy the book as a guide for meditation on ten key words, including Faith, Prayer, Justice, Grace, Hospitality and Reverence.
Karen Hering is a consulting literary minister based at Unity Church – Unitarian and serving the larger community. Her ministry of story and words offers guided writing sessions, retreats and workshops that engage writing as a spiritual practice and a tool for social change. Her reflections have appeared in journals, anthologies and several Wisdom Ways catalogs.
