Journaling Our Grief Workshop with Ray McGinnis

Writing the Sacred Experiences
Of Journaling Our Grief Workshop
with Poet-writer  RAY McGINNIS

A workshop in creative expression with poet RAY McGINNIS
Ray is a poet and psalm enthusiast and has written in journals all his life.  He has taught 8,000 people how to write prayers, poetry, and autobiographies, all the while guiding them to bring their whole heart, mind and spirit to the process.  Explore and understand our grieving experiences with a sense of depth as you connect with the sacred self expression and discuss the intent and meaning of these treasure red memories.  You are invited to create your own sacred appreciation of how grieving is a natural spiritual process.  During this workshop we use and look at exercise handouts as participants do their own writing and optional sharing as they may choose.

“Grief is a natural response to the loss or someone or something meaningful ~ a person, a relationship, a job, health, a pet, independence, the loss of a deeply held belie for anything else that is emotionally valued. At this workshop Ray McGinnis will lead us with gentle help for reflecting and addressing grief and loss. In this confidential and supportive setting you’ll be given a “map” for understanding how writing in a journal can be a helpful companion and witness to your own unfolding healing journey. No previous writing experience necessary.”
