    Facilitator: Meg Larkin

    The Fall Equinox is about balance. It's one of two days in the year when there is as much light as there is darkness. It's a time of thankfulness and gratitude for the abundance we have at this time of harvest. Please bring an item or two of non-perishable goods to place on our harvest altar. These items will be distributed to a local service organization in need of food. In closing, we will do a short group meditation and share light refreshments.

    The name, JOURNEY TO INNER FREEDOM, reflects the goal of writing from the quiet center: to uncover within ourselves an inner freedom, one we did not know we possess. As we discover the hidden resources deep within us, we also find ways to free ourselves of the chains of past destructive behaviors and to learn from the "mistakes" of life. We begin to see that all the material of our life is a rich, exciting learning ground and fertile soil for new, creative works. As this occurs, we find ourselves more and more inwardly free and truly ourselves. By writing from the quiet center, we are able to follow our inner guidance and do the deep inner work our lives require. This workshop will use the journal method of Ira Progroff described in his book, At a Journal Workshop. Bring a sack lunch on Saturday!
