ONLINE WORKSHOP — Spiritual Writing
Are you yearning to explore your spirit through writing? Are you called to write regularly, perhaps as a daily practice?
Spiritual writing is not necessarily religious writing, but it can be, as evidenced by some of the best spiritual writers: Henri J.M. Nouwen, Kathleen Norris, Donagh O’Shea, and a long list of others. Writing about a painful episode that leads to healing is spiritual writing; to write grief from the heart can also be healing. So can writing joy. Spiritual writing is, in brief, finding the voice that speaks from within and connects us to our deepest self. Writing as a spiritual practice means using the first and most primary human art form – language – to explore deep questions and express important experiences. Each week, participants will write a short essay around one topic and end by submitting a longer piece for content editing by Janet which she will return to you. Janet incorporates a lifetime of writing and questing with twenty years of liturgical practice and spiritual mentoring in a practical and clear manner to help students find their gateway to spirit through writing.
Four weeks on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm Central Time. Class limited to 10 participants.
