A Spiritual Writing Day Retreat with Sandy Wells
Saturday, October 10, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Unity Church, 21 King Ave., Albany, NY
(NOTE: This workshop replaces the fall retreat that was to be held in Niskayuna, NY)
This workshop offers an opportunity to develop the active mind of writing using the contemplative atmosphere of silence, sitting meditation and walking meditation. Writing and sharing writing in community deepens your capacity to listen and to write out beyond what you know. Writing practice provides a fresh way to develop a relationship with your mind and to discover how you see, think, feel and remember. Learn how to loosen your mind, write from your heart and find your true voice.
