Writing a Memoir…your story, told as only you can tell it
2021: Jan. 25, Feb. 22, March 22, April 26, May 24 - Details below.
Whether you wish to write a memoir solely as a life review or as a legacy piece to hand down to others, the task can feel daunting. Where do you start? What do you include? How do you set a focus when the subject matter is so complex?
This online workshop series will help you organize your thoughts and intentions. Through engagement with specific writing techniques, developed to encourage writing, your story will begin to take shape and your focus revealed. Several selections will be completed during the workshop; your intention will be in place to continue your post-workshop writing.
Please attend each session with plenty of paper and your favorite writing tools. We will open with a centering reflection. Please have a candle and lighter nearby. Choose a quiet setting in your home where you can easily focus and be undisturbed.
Registration will be limited to seven participants. Zoom access is required. Protocols for the Zoom conversation will be communicated once you are registered.
Lori Weatherly, the workshop facilitator has been attending workshops at Full Circle EcoHouse of Prayer for many years. She was co-presenter of the series, “The Faces of Grace” and led a book study series for Big Magic.

Jan. 7, 2021 Update
Programs offered on location at Full Circle EcoHouse of Prayer
are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis.
You have been very much in our minds and hearts during this Covid-19 crisis. Above all we hope that you and all dearest to you are well and coping well with the present reality.
At this point in the pandemic, we still do not think that it is wise for program participants to meet in our cozy space.
We have continued to offer spiritual direction/accompaniment by phone, Zoom and WhatsApp.
We will continue programs once we think that we can gather again to share the many wonderful things that emerge from our gatherings. In the meantime, we share this wonderful thought from the Dalai Lama:
It is important not to allow ourselves to be put off by the magnitude of others' suffering. The misery of millions is not a cause for pity. Rather it is a cause for compassion.
