Listen to Your Heart, Listen to Your Words with Colette Lafia
In-Person & Online Workshop, Santa Fe, NM - Thursday, May 12, 2022 from 11-12:30pm
Spiritual Journal writing is a profound and personal way to engage in the practice of deep listening. It is a skill we can teach those we companion. This workshop will provide techniques and practices that invite us to hear what is stirring inside. Journal writing allows us to give form to our innermost thoughts and feelings. It’s a meaningful process for both the director and the directee, to explore and deepen our spiritual journey.
As spiritual companions, this workshop will offer participants the opportunity to engage in spiritual journal writing practices they can use with those they companion. We will use prompts from poetry, music, Visio Divina (sacred seeing), and spiritual journals from writers like Thomas Merton and others. We will write, pray, and share our words in a contemplative community that respects everyone’s individual expression of the sacred and delivers a great balance of contemplative and expressive experiences.
