You have a story that’s powerful and personal. What would happen if you shared it?

These online coaching sessions will help you discover your own life stories—and why it’s worth the risk trying to share them with the world.   Whether your story is unsettling or inspiring, you can use it to gain insight, challenge stereotypes and bias, and to upend the confines of convention. Explore the possibilities of Spiritual Life Story Work with author and educator

Do you feel called to write? Are you wondering how to start?

Each Spiritual Life Writing webinar introduces you to authors who have felt like you.

Our 2021 guests to date include: Deborah Cardiff, Donna Costa, Lana Cullis, Gloria Fern, Liz Fryer, Meharoona Ghani, Tamara Jong, Jónína Kirton, Vickie MacArthur, Lindy Mechefske, Heather Mason Murray, Lori Sebastianutti, and Betsy Warland.

Several of these are writers and poets interested in reviving the ancient art of spiritual memoir. You can find examples of their work in Body & Soul, a collection of candid first-person accounts that get people talking openly and frankly about lived experiences with spirit.

Like sexuality, spirituality is often seen as private. Is it any wonder then that something powerful happens when we find a language to express ourselves, and when we listen, really listen, to each other?

Do you have a story? We would love to hear it, and to support your speaking out.

For examples of life writing as an art form, as social justice outreach, and as healing ministry, visit my website.

Watch for the newsletter about our “ancestors” webinar on crafting honest eulogies & obits (see video below)

Until then, write your heart out

Spiritual Life Story Writing

NEW upcoming Sessions on the 3rd Wednesday of each month – 7pm to 8pm EDT

REGISTER

Help is here to bring your story to life! These sessions allow you to reflect on your life and uncover hidden truths and patterns. Get to know yourself, connect with others more authentically, initiate healing, and discover life-changing gifts.

Let us help you write in ways that bring freedom and meaning–to yourself and others.

January 19th

“The art of writing is more mediumistic than other forms of art. You have to listen, take direction from within.”

— Emilie Conrad (founder of Continuum Movement)

Ingrid Rose teaches creative process. Writing from the Body is the process she developed based in Continuum Movement—a modality that uses breath and sound to produce a deep dive into the inner sea of the body.

Ingrid will lead us in and out of a dive (20 minutes), then drop a prompt into our “waters,” followed by a 5 minute write. We’ll then have a little time for sharing.

To learn more about this modality, see CONTINUUM: An Introduction with Emilie Conrad.

Ingrid is a long-time Continuum Movement practitioner, who developed Writing From the Body after working with Emily Conrad and Rebecca Mark. Learn more at Ingrid’s website, moving into words.

Sessions are free, and open to all. You need not be a writer to take part.

Life writing is the art of plumbing truth and mystery, and finding your authentic voice. We are here to help you focus your energy, and shed whatever doubts and fears make you hold your tongue. Join this month’s experiential session, focused on simple writing exercises you can do with paper and pen or your favorite writing instrument. Co-led by Susan Scott and nonfiction author Lori Sebastianutti.

Sessions are free, and open to all. You need not be an experienced writer to participate.

Please, share this invite with others who are seeking ways to ignite their writing practice.
