Inspirational Writing for Spiritual Growth - ONLY 4 PLACES LEFT!

In this fun and transformative ONLINE workshop, led by certified medium, former major media journalist and author of the upcoming Till Death Don’t Us Part: A true story of love, death, and awakening (White Crow Books, 2020), we'll blend spiritual practice with the practice of writing to help you reach the spirit within you to bring forth words of inspiration and creativity that will enhance your poetic expression and spiritual growth. You don't need to be a writer to become inspired and express that inspiration in words. You only need to get in touch with your intuition and quiet inner voice to let that inspiration flow. In this group, we'll marry spiritual practice with the practice of writing. We'll do guided meditations and creative exercises, including Haiku writing and story-catching to challenge both your analytic mind and learned conventions so that you can express your ideas more creatively from your spirit or intuition. You'll learn the art of joriki, a Zen term for illuminating the light within and blending with the light of the source or spirit without. In the second part of this workshop, we will experiment with trance states and automatic writing. Learning to write from this place helps you see the world from a more inspired and intuitive perspective, which in turn deepens your awareness of self and the world around you. Not only will you be astonished by the originality and beauty of your work, you will see how inspirational and trance writing can be key to your personal development, as issues come up to be dealt with. It also enhances your spiritual development, as inner resources are freed for expression and growth, and deepens your mediumship. No writing experience is needed and sharing your writing with the class is entirely optional. FEE: $45 after. REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/37wVMqr Zoom room URL will be sent upon registration.
