In this mini course, we will begin writing our spiritual narrative; the story of our spiritual path, a spiritual autobiography or memoir. Using a series of questions as prompts, we can access experiences of “the divine,” of inspirational figures in our lives, of struggle, of ambiguity, of clarity, of peace. No formal writing experience neccessary.
