Spirit & Story
Sacred Writing Workshop
“Time comes into it...
Say it. Say it.
The universe is made of stories,
not of atoms.”
"To be a human is to have a story to tell."
What will be the story that spirit tells through you?
What medicine do you carry in the tales of your becoming--your rites, your challenges, your grief, your growth?
We need each other's stories, and the time has come for us to share in the telling, nourish in the creating and invest in the birth of our stories to life.
Emerging from this past summer's five week class for Spirited Storytelling is a sacred writing workshop. Meeting in seasonal increments depending on the number of participants, we workshop each other's stories, re-vise and begin to find homes for our voices and stories in the world.
This project is nonlinear and may be joined at any time. All participants will have access to the recoded lectures and curriculum from the Spirit and Story class this past summer, along with opportunties to attend our live workshop events.
At the end of this workshop you will have a body of creative work, a circle of companions and clear steps to complete and share your writing with the world.

Through this class you will weave an understanding of the relationship between ancestral connection, myth, ritual and writing practice; root into your trust of your own voice and creative process; source a spiritual audience for your written work; craft a body of spirit-led creative work and empower the revision process; connect in community for learning and sharing the path.
By the end of this class you will have the tools and resources and inspiration to continue your practice,.
