Presence, Prayer and Writing from the Heart One-Day Retreat
June 12 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm$60
All of us have myriad stories to tell. Some focus on your family history, spiritual journey, experiences in Nature or a life-changing situation. These stories can take many forms but the most compelling are the ones written from the heart, those that touch and move us and sometimes transform both the writer and reader. Writing from the heart demands attentiveness, honesty, courage, and a commitment to engage with a creative process that pulls us into the unknown where we are often surprised at what surfaces. It’s a journey of discovery. What can help are presence and prayer. We’ll explore the link between both and the writing process, ever mindful that we are never closer to the Creator than when we are creating.
This writing retreat is structured for those currently working on a project, wanting to start one or simply wanting to spend time playing with words. In addition to a Centering Prayer/meditation session — Silence can be a portal to the Source of creativity and truth-telling — there will be time to write, walk, think or just be.
The fee includes lunch.
