    Sunday, November 12

    Facilitated by Elaine Hirschenberger

    Allow yourself conscious time to slow down, to savor the quiet and to enjoy being. Get back in touch with your self through meditation, writing, dreaming, walking in the woods, “playing” in the art studio. Elaine will suggest some journaling “prompts” that may guide your reflection through either the written word or creative imaging. This retreat day of silence will allow you the hours to fit whatever your soul is longing for. 

    Lunch and afternoon snack provided.

    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!
