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

with Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

March 20 - 22, 2020

Reveal the story of your spiritual journey through memoir writing. Allow other like-minded individuals to be your mirror, and come together to make meaning and share the legacy of your life by discovering the invisible thread of grace in your story.

You have 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. It’s an archetypal story of awakening that lives in the multidimensional world of kairos—the timeless dimension.

During this weekend of memoir writing, you will:

  • Journey down the metaphorical river of your life
  • Identify transformative experiences, angels, and sacred enemies
  • Identify one or more narrative arcs in your life
  • Write from your soul
  • Laugh, cry, love, celebrate, and heal
  • See your life as a spiritual journey


The time with Joan was so important and meaningful. The Yogaville setting and meditation time facilitated a deeper understanding of myself and I have found my voice. The writing and reading sessions brought so many threads of my life into focus. I can’t wait to continue tying them all together! — Mary Hobson

Joan is a magnificent workshop leader. Sher struck a perfect balance between inspirational instruction and time for writing. — Maureen Anderson

Joan has a giving spirit. I was blown away by her practical intelligence, her ability to make us think without pressure. This was just what I needed, and I didn’t really know it. — Lourdes S.
