Explore our monthly themes and engage spiritual discernment through the art of creative writing!
Writing is a long-loved path to personal insight, spiritual discernment and self-expression. By bringing the practice of writing to the exploration of our monthly themes, we hope to provide participants not only with another channel of self-discovery, but also with the gift of being witnessed in a new and precious way.
What You Get
The subscription comes with two packets - a facilitator's guide and a participant packet - per each of our 2023-24 monthly themes. The Participant Packets includes personal warm up questions and 4-5 writing prompts/exercises to choose from. The Facilitator's Guide includes extra material to support facilitators as they lead their groups, such as center words, check in options, warm up activities, tips for guiding the discussion of the writing exercises.
Format and Approach
Groups are encouraged to adapt the material as best fits their group culture, but the suggested structure involves participants picking one of the writing exercises and working on it in advance of the group meeting. In the meeting, the facilitator uses the facilitator packet to guide the group through a warm up exercise, sharing the pieces group members have written and a closing ritual.
The best way to get a sense of the curriculum is to explore a Facilitator's Guide and Participant Packet directly. So here are samples of those:
For congregations with 150 members or more: $140
