About the Event

Here’s the video:

Writing is a profound and personal way to listen to our heart and soul. It provides us with a way to hear what is stirring inside of us, and gives form to our innermost thoughts and feelings.  It’s a perfect process for exploring and deepening our spiritual journey. 

“Listen to your words” is a contemplative writing retreat, offering you the opportunity to discover writing as a spiritual practice. We will engage in many forms of writing such as spiritual journaling, uncensored free writing, letter writing, and poetry writing. We will share our writing in a contemplative community that respects everyone’s individual expression.
