The Spiritual Art of Memoir: Discovering the Invisible Thread of Grace

with Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

April 27 - 29, 2018

If you’re thinking about this workshop, you weren’t born yesterday. You’ve lived and loved, won and lost, celebrated and grieved. You have many stories to tell. All stories have an inside and an outside. The outside is linear—it happened in what the Greeks called chronos—or clock time. But inside there is a hidden thread of grace, an archetypal story of awakening, that lives in the multidimensional world of kairos—the timeless dimension.
