Contemplative Writing with Sr Glenna Czachor
A mindful practice of meditation through the written word
March 2 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm CST
Online registration one week prior is required, with a donation of your choosing
The Lenten practice of repentance may sound familiar…but what does it really mean for us? The biblical tradition of repentance is less about paying attention to our sinfulness and more about focusing on our lives as we seek a change of mind or actions. True acts of repentance will help us think differently and turn from what we think is our path, to what God is really calling forth for us.
One way to get in touch with new ways of thinking and being is through the practice of Contemplative Writing, a mindfulness practice through the written word. Engaging in a practice of focused journaling using writing prompts, Contemplative Writing can support the process of self-discovery and foster connection with your inner spirit.
- Boosts your confidence and calms your inner-critic
- Offers new perspectives on your life journey
- Allows for freedom and creativity
- Relieves stress and addresses deep-set emotions
Contemplative writing is a simple process and requires no special skills. It is a gentle process of self-reflection and soul-searching. Please come ready to pray and reflect, to write, and to interact with others. All materials will be provided….however, feel free to bring your own journal.
