9 am - 4 pm

Conference Center at 308 Page Street

The inner life appears on the page in many forms, and at its heart is the quest for truth.

This workshop uses the raw material of your life to reveal the deeper intelligence of your inner journey. We explore in writing what lies in your heart, your aspirations and fears, your ways of seeing both your past and your present. We give form to some of the images that have lived in your mind and imagination for decades, and have helped to shape who you are, and who you are becoming. With a variety of exercises, you are encouraged to reach down into the events and themes of your life to find the deeper layers of wisdom and healing that lie within them.

Together, we provide a relaxed and nonjudgmental space in which to share your work and receive supportive feedback.

Fee: $80; $72 current SFZC members; $64 limited income. Fee includes organic vegetarian lunch. Some partial scholarships available; see About Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations.
