“But where the danger is, also grows the saving power.” —“Patmos,” Friedrich Holderlïn
In this interactive writing-and-healing workshop, we will explore memories and parts of ourselves that may have been difficult to feel or acknowledge and yet beckon, all the more, to be witnessed with compassion. To see with compassion means not only to bring kindness but also openness and curiosity about the larger context for our lives—the forces at work in our choices and the choices of others. From compassion we derive wisdom and, therefore, peace.
We will use guided meditation, writing, and energetic healing practices to bring into the light that which we have carried unseen—sometimes unseen even to ourselves. When we write from an intention of openness, curiosity, and self-love, we have the capacity to directly channel the wisdom of our higher self. We can unravel stories about the past that do not serve us, reframe and release negative beliefs, and experience healing on emotional, psychological, and spiritual levels.
Bring your journal or computer. Bring your hopes, wishes, and needs.
This is a live event being held at the Unity Center of Pittsburgh (5343 Kincaid St, Pittsburgh, PA 15224) and is also being livestreamed virtually via Zoom Meeting.
All registered participants will receive the Zoom information, as well as a replay of the live broadcast within 48 hours of the end of the event..
