Sponsored by Mercy by the Sea Retreat and Conference Center

In this two-hour journaling retreat by Zoom, we will find creative and healing ways to write from the shadows of human experience. Using a variety of writing prompts and techniques, we will wrap language around the numinous, seeking — not to eliminate the painful places in our lives — but to explore the wisdom, beauty, and hope that shadow offers. This retreat is open to anyone who journals (or aspires to journal!) as a spiritual practice. All you need is your favorite pen and notebook, a quiet place to work, and the courage to join a community of companion writers as we dwell together in shadow and seek the light. The virtual program is for participants of all faith backgrounds or “nones.”
