Soul-Full Conversations: Spiritual Memoir

Soul-Full Conversations: Spiritual Memoir
“The page is a receptive ear for the soul’s murmurings. Writing has helped me figure out what I know for sure and, more important, it has given me a way to grapple with those questions that seem to have no answers. At times, it has been a call and response between my doubting, uncertain, seeking self and some wiser self whose voice I’m still learning to summon and trust. But sharing what I write is what takes me to my edge, to that place where my own vulnerabilities are brought to light and exposed. And what a relief it is, always, to realize I can survive the glare, and that I’m not alone after all.” —Katrina Kenison, Magical Journey
In this quarter of Soul-Full Conversations, we continue engaging in soul-full dialog using David Whyte’s book Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words. As we reflect upon and share insights with one another on his “everyday” words each week (Anger, Courage, Heartbreak, Rest, Silence, and more), we will also discover our unique spiritual stories. Everyone is invited to “write” a memoir using words and images by engaging his chapters as the creative prompt. Purchase of the book is required. A limited number of books may be available for purchase at Seton Cove. (There will be a FB group for additional conversation during the weeks we do not meet at the Cove.)
