At this fertile time of summer blooming, we’ll have the opportunity to cultivate one of our most vital resources for creativity and spiritual unfoldment—deepening our heart connection and the devotion to expressing its truths through writing. We’ll begin with meditative practices and gentle movement to still our minds, relax our bodies, and soften into our hearts, opening to a flow of writing on the page. We’ll venture into deeper heart territory during a longer writing session to see what’s ready to arise, then after lunch, we’ll have a chance to explore the grounds of St. Mary’s Church for inspiration. Our time together will be nourishing, ignite new writing, creative flowering, and deepen our connection with our innermost selves, one another, and the world around us in a supportive circle of writers at all levels of experience.
