Writing as Spiritual Practice

January 20, 2001 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST


Creating a regular space to find words that express our deepest nature is a spiritual practice. We give a name to the wild thing that leaps to mind; we give voice to the stranger in our dreams; we follow the path of our own sacred words.

In this workshop we will discuss how to develop a writing practice. We will listen to poems that express the sacred and use writing exercises to open ourselves to the language of soul. Participants are asked to bring a poem they love, their own or someone else’s, that expresses a connection to the sacred.
