Writing What Matters: Telling Your Spiritual Story
Saturday, October 6; 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Facilitated by Kate Hennessy, granddaughter and author of Dorothy Day: The World Saved by Beauty: An Intimate Portrait of My Grandmother.
The Irish poet Seamus Heaney once said that he wrote about those moments he sensed held greater meaning within, even though he might not ever find out what that meaning was. In this workshop, we will explore the art and practice of delving into your own story with the intention of finding the greater meaning within.
Through writing exercises, we will follow the mysterious threads of our lives through, for example, examining how the faith traditions we come from have shaped our spirituality, and discovering our spiritual turning points (which often are not the moments we think of as spiritual).
We will discuss such questions as: What does it mean to be a spiritual person? What is a spiritual memoir and why write one? Where and how do we begin? How can we speak of our own spirituality in a language that is our own? By the end of the workshop, participants will have a solid foundation for their own spiritual memoir.
Registration is $95 if received by September 14; $115 thereafter.
Includes lunch, materials, and the guidance of a nationally-respected writer whose work has been called an “innovative fusion of a dual biography with a personal testimony.”
Please register by September 21.
Payment in full is due prior to arrival.
