Creative Writing as a Spiritual Practice: Exploring the Power of Words to Open Us Up to the Presence of God in Our Stories, Our Lives, and Our World

January 26-28, 2020

Come away from the busyness of your life to experience creative writing as a spiritual practice. When we write creatively, we open ourselves to grow in spiritual practices like attentiveness, intentionality, empathy, and gratitude – gifts we want to grow as disciples of Christ. The creative output and sharing during this event will build a remarkably close community and lead to conversations of remarkable spiritual depth. Challenge yourself creatively and spiritually, and leave with a sense of peace at having drawn closer to yourself and to God.

This program is interactive with lots of writing in community and on your own. Process is much more important than product – so no matter how much (or how little) writing you’ve done in the past, this retreat can be for you! Groups that have participated in this program have included people from ages 25 to 85. Small groups that already know each other, and people who’ve never met before have felt that they’ve grown in their relationship with God and with each other. Clergy have also been enthusiastic participants in these programs.
