Misfits, Warriors, & Holy Fools: Spiritual Biographies to Live By
Who are these misfits, warriors, and holy fools? Through book talks and movies, we will examine contempory mystics who rose to a level of consciousness enviable to anyone living in these times of personal and communal unrest. We will walk with heroes and heroines, East, West, and Indigenous; gleaning insight to best prepare for what awaits us!
This is an ongoing series, and each session will cover a different topic. The program will be presented via zoom.

*POSTPONED* Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography and Soul Mythology
Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography and Soul Mythology
In a series of four workshops, we will explore personal stories, the myths generated by those stories, and the truths and archetypes that lie within those myths. Through reflection and examination, we will identify impactful life events, which will then help us craft a narrative around one. No previous writing experience is necessary – these stories are expected to be written simply, as though told to a trusted friend.
