Give voice to your life's deeper purpose and direction.
Who we are is a mystery to ourselves as much as to everyone else, and we could say that what we are here for is to unfold the mystery both of our true identity and of the unique story of our own life. Your truest story lies in the depths of your heart. It is like a secret, inherent in the gift of life that you have been given. It is not a task you have to fulfill so much as a lilt on the wind that you are called to pay attention to and to follow as you may. Sometimes we hear it and follow, and sometimes we don't. Our purpose is bound up in the truth of who we are, and who we are runs like an underground stream through all of our days. It leaves its mark on everything we do or say.
This writing weekend encourages you to drop your line down into that stream. It is a time to explore what you may never have fully given voice to. The faint whispers that may arrive in the night, in the moment of silence at the dinner table, alone under the stars, or on some hilltop. We shall explore your deeper heart's desires, the truths you may know but have been afraid to act on, and the courage required to claim them.
You will learn to:
- Give voice to your life's deeper purpose and direction.
- Be clearer about your primary values.
- Make more of your unknown known by giving it attention.
- Deepen your relationship to yourself and others by coming closer to the truth of your own experience.
Who should attend this workshop:
- Nonwriters, people interested in using writing to deepen their relationship to self and others.
- Writers: occasional writers who want to go deeper into their experience and practiced writers wanting to use their craft to explore their inner journey.
