Writing as a Spiritual Practice


Writing is inherently lonely, as anyone who’s sat staring at a page (or a computer screen) waiting for inspiration can corroborate. But that solitude also has great spiritual potential. In this course, we’ll explore ways to stay spiritually centered as a writer, regardless of your subject matter. You’ll be asked to share a piece of writing that’s on a spiritual topic or relates in some way to your spiritual path. During the weekend we’ll try out some mindfulness techniques that can prepare us for writing and share stories about how the creative process is intertwined with questions of meaning and purpose. You don’t have to be a member of a faith community to
participate—all seekers are welcome.
