Writing the Sacred Journey: Introductory Workshop
Thursday Introductory Workshop
Thursday, February 2, 2017, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
Spiritual memoir is the practice of listening deeply to life experiences through the creation of artful, true stories. We come more alive when we accept how our experiences have formed us and when we form something from what we’ve experienced. It’s possible to find holiness in the details of our memories, in the patterns that unify our sense of self, and in the deep personal healing that comes when we write. By crafting our stories to engage the inner lives of readers, we participate in transforming our world.
Join Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew for an introduction to the art and spiritual practice of writing memoir. What is memoir, and how is it different from autobiography? What makes memoir spiritual? How can memoir writing, whether for an audience or no audience, support spiritual growth? We will start with the basics, using writing exercises, readings from master writers, and conversation.
When: Thursday, February 2, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
Registration for this workshop is closed.
