The Spiritual Art of Memoir: Discovering the Invisible Thread of Grace
with Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
March 20 - 22, 2020
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. It’s an archetypal story of awakening that lives in the multidimensional world of kairos—the timeless dimension.
In this workshop, the bones of your spiritual journey will emerge through your memoir writing. Other like-minded individuals will be your mirror, and you will come together to make meaning and share the legacy of your life.
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

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.
