Writing To Awaken with Mark Matousek
May 10, 2020 - May 15, 2020
Memoir as a Spiritual Practice, May 10 – 15, 2020. We will spend the day exploring personal stories as pathways to wisdom and self-encounter. When we learn to see the mythic dimension of our struggles, losses, triumphs, and transformations, we gain insight into our spiritual progress — the state of our soul — and what is asking for deeper attention. Writing to Awaken Workshops: We each have our own story, a personal myth constructed from the content life presents us. By questioning our connections to this narrative, we come to realize that we are not our stories. This opens the door for change and transformation. Writing To Awaken is an intimate exploration of personal identity through expressive writing. Using targeted questions, radical truth-telling, and self-inquiry, you will explore the narratives of your life, writing honestly about your greatest challenges, deepest yearnings, secret wounds, hidden gifts, and roads less traveled. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of your storytelling self and move toward a more liberated, authentic, and awakened life.
