 “Writing can be a spiritual practice. To write about what is painful is to begin the work of healing. To write the red of a tomato before it is mixed into beans for chili is a form of praise. To write an image of a child caught in war is confession or petition or requiem. To write grief onto a page of lined paper until tears blur the ink is often the surest access to giving or receiving forgiveness. To write a comic scene is grace and beatitude. To write irony is to seek justice. To write admission of failure is humility. To be in an attitude of praise or thanksgiving, to rage against God, or to open one’s inner self and listen, is prayer. To write tragedy and allow comedy to arise between the lines is miracle and revelation.”

Join Mary Gustafson, author of “My Wish”
& Tyler Lewke, author of postsfromthepath.com for a two hour introductory workshop exploring:

  • how to get started
  • 
writing as a spiritual practice
  • the writers life

Mary and Tyler are lifelong best friends and writing partners, using this practice a a tool for inner exploration and outward service for more than 20 years. Their friendship, commitment, humor, reverence and irreverence will inspire and scare you. Come along for the ride.
