Eye of the Heart Center’s *New* Online Writing Community

Bring your creativity, doubts, questions, and willingness to connect into an online community that names the world as gift. Creation thrives in a flow of giving and receiving. In this space, we orient our hearts toward the gifts of writing–insight, healing, growth, and meaningful presence. Each of us is a gift to the whole, and our best gifts to others are hearts widened by creativity.

Eye of the Heart Center Writing Programs

The Eye of the Heart’s writing programs tend to both writer and writing, trusting that the fruits of creative endeavors nourish both our lives and the wider world. Because we do our most effective work within a caring community, all programs build connections between participants.

Writing the Sacred Journey: Introductory Workshop on Spiritual Memoir

Virtual | Self-paced

During this self-paced, two-and-a-half-week independent study, writers can view Elizabeth’s video lectures, respond to writing prompts, and immerse themselves in the genre and practice of spiritual memoir through readings and a community forum.

Writing Your Sacred Journey: Stories to Transform Self and World

In Person: Monthly on fourth Fridays (except Holiday times) from 1:30-3:30 p.m. (1/26, 2/23, 3/22, 4/26, 5/24, 6/14)
4101 Harriet Avenue in Minneapolis

Online: Monthly on fourth Mondays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. CT (1/22, 2/26, 3/25, 4/22, 5/20, 6/17)

Join Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew to explore the art and practice of spiritual memoir writing.  Each session will give participants the opportunity to write, time for conversation, inspiration from model writers, and insights about craft, content, and practice.  These monthly practice sessions are meant for writers of all levels, including absolute beginners.  New participants are encouraged to take Elizabeth’s introduction to spiritual memoir workshop or read Writing the Sacred Journey.  Because practice sessions are not consecutive, you can drop in as you’d like.  Over three years, the curriculum covers the significant aspects of the craft of writing memoir, common themes, and the invitations to transformation inherent in the practice.
