This workshop teaches writing as a practice for shifting our narratives to make peace with our stories. When viewed through the lens of judgment or over identification, the stories we tell about who we are and what shapes us, can keep us stuck. In this week, we will use discussion, writing exercises and centering prayer to break open our personal narratives so that we may begin to externalize our stories and experience a deeper compassion for ourselves and those who have loved and failed us.

Each day will include an hour and half teaching session to include writing prompts, an hour and half workshop session, and unstructured time.

Participation is limited and requires application. Application deadline is April 4, 2016.
