Writing Your Personal Spiritual Autobiography 

Workshop led by Dr. Daniel Robinson
Your personal Spiritual Autobiography is a written compilation of the most important stories of your life and a reflection on how those stories inform your experience of spirituality. Your personal Soul Mythology is a compilation of the "life-lived myths" that inform your Soul, that shy, yet very curious, part of yourself that seeks and longs for those eternal mysteries that tell you who you were before the "world got ahold of you." As a participant in this upcoming Guild workshop, you will be introduced to the process of writing your personal spiritual autobiography and have the opportunity to actually write a small portion based upon one of several offered prompts. You will then be guided in constructing a mythological story based upon that one small portion of your spiritual autobiography.

This process will enable participants to explore the "quiet questions" that stir the Soul when no one is watching, questions like: Who are the loves of my life? What are my passions? How have I discovered my truest longings? We will explore how one writes a myth that captures a glimpse of who we are becoming, and we will invite you to join others on this very personal journey from the outer stories of our lives into the great mysteries of the truths that lie within us all.

Comments from a recent offering of this workshop to healthcare providers include:

"Loved this session. Impressed that he got us to go so deep so fast."
"A masterful presenter. Without exaggeration, what I experienced feels to me like it made a significant change in my life."
