This six-week writing intensive is designed to introduce students of all levels – from non-writers to professional wordsmiths – to the art of spiritual memoir. When we learn to tell the whole truth about experience, to discern our own soul’s odyssey, we come to understand the mythic dimension of our personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions, and so-called mistakes.

Through weekly writing exercises and group interaction (via Google Groups), we investigate the mysterious connection between the person we believe ourselves to be and the internal witness who sees beyond the conscious mind into the secrets of our hearts. By putting our feelings down on paper, and learning to shape life’s raw materials into art, we discover that our challenges are also our greatest sources of wisdom, and that even our darkest (or most unexpected) interludes carry within them the seeds of redemption. This course also includes an introductory phone call on Wednesday July 13 at 8 PM EST/5PM PST and a workshop closing telephone call on August 17, 2011 8 PM EST/5PM PST. Both calls will be recording and all participants will receive an mp3 of the call in case you are unable to attend or would like to review the call in the future.
