Writing Our Mythic Stories and Spiritual Autobiographies
We all have stories. Some stories define us. Some may point to our purpose in this life. Some may describe critical turning points. Some are welcomed as mysterious, challenging, explanatory, and mythic. Others are painful and tend to be repressed. Our stories speak to how we experience life and the ego persona we have cultivated. And those that change the way we live are called our sacred stories.
In this workshop we will compile our sacred stories to make a spiritual autobiography. We will notice how our stories reflect the mythology of our times and how we live into them. We will identify unconscious archetypical myths that have guided and navigated our soul.
St. Francis of Assisi prayed, “Who are you and why am I here?” By examining our sacred stories, we may find the answer. Each week we will focus on topics that build upon the prior week.
Week 1 – The Mythic Power of Our Sacred Stories
Week 2 – Discovering Our Personal Mythology
Week 3 – Identifying Our Soul Archetypes
Week 4 – Sharing Our Sacred Stories and Their Myth
