“One of the most generous-spirited presenters
I have worked with anywhere.”
~Oriane Lee Johnson
We each have our own story, a personal myth constructed from our life experiences. Unfortunately, a majority of us believe that we are our story rather than being the storyteller. We identify so strongly with these narratives that we cling to them for our very existence – even when they no longer fit. Realizing the a gap between your stories and your authentic self is a doorway to personal freedom and insight.
Writing To Awaken guides you through this portal using powerful questions and self-inquiry. When you write about your deepest desires, secret challenges, unrealized gifts, and so-called mistakes, you liberate your latent wisdom and the power of the internal witness. This releases creativity, innovation, and courage. Scientific studies have shown remarkable improvements in physical, mental, and emotional health through expressive writing.

FEATURED RETREAT

AUGUST 2022

Writing as a Spiritual Practice: The
Healing Power of Telling Your Story
August 19 – 24, 2022

This transformational five-day program uses personal writing as a path of self-discovery, authenticity, and spiritual growth. When you learn to express the whole truth about experience and to discern your own soul’s journey, you come to understand the mythic dimension of personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions, and so-called mistakes. The realization that you are the storyteller – not the story – frees you to examine beliefs, expectations, and biases that have limited your sense of self.
