VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
NOTE from Mary: I’ve taught this course online before and been amazed at the level of participation and depth of communication from students… So please join us.
All Levels | You might describe your spiritual journey as the path of your seeking, or a map of your inner life. This class will examine memoirs written by people who have left, returned to, discovered or joined, and struggled within a tradition — Christian, Muslim, Jewish, mystics, Sufis, Buddhists, Native Americans, and secularists alike. Then, you’ll be guided through a process to find, deepen, and shape your story, including: reading, stillness, movement, drawing, writing, and instruction in literary techniques. By the end, students should have a draft of their spiritual memoir.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
