WRITING TO AWAKEN

A Journey of Truth, Transformation & Self-Discovery

                              

   

The spiritual journey is a journey of self-discovery leading, if we consent, to transformation. It is in the process of self-discovery that we discover who God is and grow in our ability to deepen our relationship with God and with all of life.

 

Mark Matousek, the author of Writing to Awaken, has helped thousands of people focus on personal awakening through self-inquiry and writing. We will be using exercises from this book to probe our depths, chip away at the ego (false self), explore buried feelings and access our vulnerability – that place where we are most likely to meet the Divine Indwelling.


Some say that we are able to access a higher level of consciousness by writing than we experience in our ordinary daily life. In his teaching on the Human Condition, Father Thomas says that so much of the time our attitudes, emotions, and behavior are driven by the unconscious motivation of the energy centers and are based on our perceptions rather than reality. Out of these unconscious motivations and perceptions we weave our life story, which may or may not be true.

 

Father Thomas encourages us to participate in the dismantling of our emotional programs for happiness – our false-self system. Looking at our “story” through writing can deepen our experience in Centering Prayer, leading us to live our lives out of our true self.

 

No writing skills are required; you don’t even have to like to write. Each class will include instruction, writing, and sharing in the manner of group spiritual direction. It’s so important that we tell ourselves the truth in our writing that you will not be sharing what you’ve written unless you want to. Sharing will be primarily around your writing experience and what you are discovering.
