Writing the Voice of Spirit – January 27th

Writing the Voice of Spirit

We all have questions.
And we all have answers.

The wisdom we’ve gained from our experiences may be life-giving nourishment for someone else.

And when we practice writing as a tool of spiritual inquiry, we can discover depths of insight we never knew were in us.

Explore writing to express the things you know in your heart to be true. Tap into writing as medicine for this moment. See how you can become a channel for messages from the universe.

This workshop is for anyone who’s interested in writing, and anyone who wonders what Spirit might have to say if you lent Spirit your voice.

We’ll try on practical techniques for making space for the sacred in our writing and support one another in tuning in to what wants to be spoken through us.

Take some time this January to listen to the words arising from deep within you, and see what happens when you let them out.

The world needs all of our light!

Writing Your Revolution – October 21

Revolution:

1. the action by a celestial body of going round in an orbit

2. a fundamental change

The topic is change.

This workshop is for anyone who writes, or who wants to write, who is interested in this topic. All levels are welcome in an environment that encourages experimentation.

It is a workshop on writing during times of change; on writing about change; on writing change into being.

It’s for anyone who feels like there is something they need to say, either to the world or to themselves, and would enjoy some support for the process of finding words.

It’s for anyone who believes in the power of words to create reality – and wants to do some creating.

It’s for anyone who suspects that writing can be a way to explore the inner landscape, and who is ready to dive in.

What will we cover?

This half-day workshop includes both creative exercises and contemplative practices, as well as dedicated time for putting words on paper. You’ll get help with –

  • Getting started and getting unstuck
  • Discovering your message – what you want to say, and why
  • Freeing your voice and writing from your heart
  • Expressing the wisdom of your experience without self-censoring
  • Connecting with others through your writing
  • Writing as a channel for inner guidance
  • Using the power of your words to create the world you want to live in

We’ll also have space to talk about any specific questions about writing that you may be sitting with.

Why take this time for writing?

We’re living in a time of massive upheaval and rearrangement. There’s a great need for spiritual and creative tools to help us make sense of all of the thoughts and emotions, and to help us move from feeling to understanding to action in the ways that feel right to each of us. And there’s also a great energy of possibility – as the ground of “how it’s always been” shifts, we may find ourselves opening to new perspectives and inner guidance in ways we haven’t before. Writing can be an excellent tool for gaining clarity about what we believe, what we know, and what we want.
