There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Writing Ourselves Whole

Come explore the benefits writing can provide—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

In this workshop you’ll learn and practice simple yet profound ways to use words to heal, to transform, and to grow, as well as to reflect on the way Spirit is working in your life. These methods can also be used to create stories, poems, and/or essays.

Our time together will be ideal for beginners as well as for seasoned writers as we renew and deepen our relationship with God, self, and others.

Well of Mercy offers a beautiful space to connect with yourself, nature and Spirit. Take this time and space for yourself.

Please register early as this retreat is limited to 10 participants.
