Slowing Down: Writing as Spiritual Practice

Wednesday, April 27, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm Eastern

The act of writing is an act of taking the time to witness beautiful and difficult things.


Additional Information

Spiritual writing in nonfiction can transform how we see ourselves, others, and the divine. Yet in this pandemic era we are often busy and overstimulated; it’s difficult to notice what’s around us or inside us, let alone respond to it through words that can reach others. In this webinar, you will learn ways to slow down and re-see your writing, exploring practices to sustain your work and share it with the world.

In this webinar, you will:

  • PRACTICE writing exercises to slow down and listen to your work
  • LEARN strategies for conveying the ineffable to a wide audience with differing beliefs and traditions
  • RECEIVE guidance on revising as a transformative act

There will be time for a Q & A at the end of the presentation.

This webinar is ideal for any writer seeking to communicate the life-changing, the mysterious, the holy in the nonfiction form—all backgrounds and faiths welcome.

All registrants receive a recording.
