Writing the Sacred Journey: The Art and Practice of Spiritual Memoir

“This is a courageous work, full of practical exercises and examples of techniques… The author’s use of the term “spiritual” is broad enough to include pretty much any illuminating experience of life.”

–Sumangali Morhall, Auspicious Good Fortune

“As one who regularly teaches courses in spiritual autobiography, Writing the Sacred Journey is the most useful writing manual–of any kind–I have read. Andrew has thought with exceptional depth and nuance about the inner processes of daily writing, what’s at stake in revision and what’s beyond the block.
