Woodstock Book Festival

It was great to be at the Woodstock Book Festival again this year! I was on a panel moderated by Gail Straub with my dear friend Elizabeth Lesser, talking about books and consciousness. I’m always amazed by the concentration of creative, like-minded people in Woodstock, and am grateful to Jackie at The Golden Notebook bookstore for always making me feel so welcome.Till next year!

Writing to Awaken at the New York Open Center

I’m looking forward to my one-day workshop, Writing To Awaken: Memoir as a Spiritual Practice, at the New York Open Center on Sunday, April 28. We will spend the day exploring personal stories as pathways to wisdom and self-encounter. When we learn to see the mythic dimension of our struggles, losses, triumphs, and transformations, we gain insight into our spiritual progress — the state of our soul — and what is asking for deeper attention.

Writing Your Future Story Online Class

Join me for Writing Your Future Story: A Six-Week Course in Vision and Imagination from July 1 – August 11. Every life is a work of the imagination. We create our own futures, imagine ourselves forward in time, through the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, who we’re not, what is possible, and what can never be.

In this imaginative course on self-reinvention, you will have the opportunity to explore new story lines for the year ahead, including fresh possibilities, surprising shifts, and novel ways of expanding — and improving, your future life. More info and registration.
