In my upcoming spiritual writing workshop, “Writing Your Sacred Story: Listening to What Your Own Life Can Teach You,” we will be exploring these hidden stories of our lives. We will be using writing as a tool to help us reflect on any number of truths revealed through concrete experiences and relationships. If words like “Ephiphany” – as in a sudden, intuitive perception of deeper meaning – and “Ecstatic Union” – as in unity with the Divine element of the universe – don’t sound like anything that has happened in your one ‘ordinary’ life of going to the dentist, grocery shopping and paying bills, I encourage you to think again.
And when you do, you may want to sign up for my workshop. Make sure you bring along paper and pens. You have a lot to say. Writing some of it down just may offer you a much finer focus on your life than ever before.
Please Note: This workshop is open to people of faith, or no discernible faith. No special writing talent is needed. Just patience and a willingness to write, share and listen to one another’s stories
