Writing as a Sacred Path
March 4 - April 15, 2018
This guided discussion group will work with the book Writing as a Sacred Path: A Practical Guide to Writing with Passion and Purpose by Jill Jepson. Each week participants will read from the text and complete one or more writing prompts. I will distill the main ideas in the readings and offer some thoughts and reflections. There will be a facilitated discussion space to discuss and reflect on the ideas in the book as well as a space to share writings inspired by the prompts.
We will primarily interact with each other in a facilitated online space where we can discuss our process, share our writing, ask questions of other group members, share relevant articles, and useful prompts. In other words, participate in a safe, supportive creative community focused on using writing as a method for self-reflection, healing, and personal growth.
Week 1: The Call & The Sacred Gift
Week 2: The Mystic Journey
Week 3: The Monastic Path
Week 4: The Way of the Shaman
Week 5: The Warrior Road
Week 6: Walking the Sacred Path

There is a facilitated online discussion space where participants can ask questions, and share their work and process.

From our interactions, we sustain a welcoming and inspiring community together. Through lively online discussions and responding to one another's queries and creativity we come to know one another and support one another as we find our voice, identity, and expression.
