Experience transformational writing as a path to self-knowledge. Discover how to tell the whole truth about an experience and discern your own soul’s journey. Understand the mythic dimension of personal struggles, triumphs, confusions, longings, digressions, and so-called mistakes.
Join Matousek, award-winning author of Writing to Awaken: A Journey of Truth, Transformation and Self-Discovery to liberate yourself from the myth that your stories are you. Bring awareness to every life narrative as a work of fiction to free yourself of unnecessary limits these fictions impose on you. Through writing exercises and group dialogue, examine your cherished narratives as doorways to transpersonal wisdom. As Matousek teaches, “When you tell the truth, your story changes. When your story changes, your life is transformed.”
Use writing exercises and group dialogue to explore the stories that shape your life. Gain self-understanding and spiritual insight to:
1. Identify the internal stories that shape your life
2. Use writing as a path of self-discovery and healing
3. Transcend obsolete narratives through self-inquiry and personal truth-telling
4. Express your thoughts and feelings clearly on the written page
5. Overcome shame, guilt, and fear related to using your writer’s voice
Discover, too, that even your darkest, most unexpected interludes carry within them the seeds of redemption. As your stories shape your life, they can also be reshaped in a stronger, more confident voice.
