Writing Through Change and Transformation

Sept 13 & 20, 2024 / 6:00-7:30 PM CT

through Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality 

Registration at Wisdom Ways. This will be in person and virtual class via Zoom


We will consider the gifts and the challenges that come when things are changing and we feel uncertain, we experience a sense of loss, or we notice a quickening we can’t explain. We will write about how faith is a guiding light through times of difficulty and the experience of transformation as a journey from chrysalis to butterfly. Each session includes inspiration from world-renowned spiritual teachers and contemporary poets to inspire our own writing.

Wisdom Ways is at the Carondelet Center

1890 Randolph Ave St Paul MN 55015

returns on Sept 16
We will be present with each other and any grief you are experiencing–loss of a loved one, a job, a house, a dream, or a physical ability. We will use the container of ritual, inspiration from wisdom teachings, mindfulness practice, and sharing. This is not a typical support group but a way to feel supported through your journey. You are also welcome to come and just be. Love offerings welcomed. We meet 7:00-8:00 PM on the third Monday in our temporary home at Robbinsdale Parkway UCOC 4200 Lake Rd Ave, Robbinsdale, MN 55422
