While none of us can rewrite our life’s history, we can re-author the stories we tell about our lives. Re-creating the stories we tell about our lives has vast implications. Those who tell more redemptive stories tend to lead more generative lives. The more beauty, truth, and goodness we come to see in ourselves, the more beauty, truth, and goodness we tend to see in the world and its peoples.
This daylong retreat is designed for all those who yearn to discern where life-giving meaning can be found in our stories—both others’ and our own. Our day together will be devoted to periods of prayerful introspection, personal writing, and deep storylistening in small groups.
COST: $85.00, includes lunch.
Books available for purchase at Wisdom Ways.
“A redemptive story has nothing to do with a happily ever after story… It is through the telling of a story that we discover the redemptive meaning within. I’m not asking people to find the silver lining of their lives; I’m asking them to discover the full truth about their lives, and that truth is almost always a pathway to generativity.”
