Writing Spirituality, with Kira Rockwell
Writing Spirituality is a workshop devoted to writing that is inspired by our connection to the soul. We will make use of reflective writing exercises on topics such as nature, ritual, and folklore, create space to generate and share new work, and look at readings with analysis on form and content. We’ll read various essays and texts that invite audiences to reach beyond the binary of secular and religion, and consider the sacred within and around us. Whether you have experiences with faith, a complex or nuanced relationship with religion, or are in the midst of de/reconstructing what spirituality means to you, this workshop is a reflective space to explore. Readings will consist of authors such as Robin Wall Kimmerer, Sasha Sagan, Sue Monk Kidd, Clarissa Pinkola Estés, and Peter Wohlleben.
This workshop will be held online.
Saturday, December 3, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
