Do you feel liberated by pouring your heart’s deepest truths into a journal? Do you turn to writing as a way to free yourself from old stories, clear negative emotions and open to your higher wisdom?
If so, you’re not alone. Our intimate writings are far more than “just” a diary; they can be a powerful spiritual practice that frees us from stuck energies, old ideas and stagnant visions.
They can be a gateway to our soul’s liberation.
It is time for writing to take a respected place of honor among more venerated spiritual practices like meditation and prayer. Indeed, there is perhaps no more powerful tool to work with our stories, our emotions, our dreams and our hopes.
By focusing our mind on crystallizing the essence of our feelings, peeling back the layers of truth and seeking a higher vision, we can create an open channel for our soul to, quite literally, incarnate into our lives.
But not all writing is transformative. If you aren’t careful, you can end up rehearsing your grudges, reinforcing your false beliefs, and keep yourself stuck.
Like any spiritual practice, you can learn to practice writing far more skillfully to access its greatest liberating gifts.
In this free teleseminar event, one of the world’s most respected spiritual authors, journalists and memoir teachers shares his three decades of secrets about how to engage your writing – from memoir to private journals – as a potent DAILY spiritual practice.
How do you ask the questions, and do the exercises, that go beyond surface truth – to something that is radiantly divine? How do you use writing as real inquiry into the depths of your being, the far corners of your shadow and the heights of your wisdom?
Mark will offer profound answers, and even more powerful foundational practices, that you can apply to transform your practice of writing into a truly liberating vehicle for all of who you are.
And he'll share with us:
- How to create a sense of internal safety to tell your full truth to yourself
- Navigate the voices of self-criticism and hatred with more kindness
- Strategies for letting go of outdated stories
- Using your writing to reinvent yourself and set new intentions for the future
Join us for soul-stirring event!
