Writer's Workshop

Rabbi Sigal Brier,

Session 1 Leader


SESSION 1: Creating Rituals for Writers 


A ritual is an invitation from the surface into the deep. A sacred bridge in time and space where we are engaged in conversation, action, or silence to draw us close to the call of the soul. 

In a good ritual we set the stage to enhance our ability to enter the mystery of creativity and let a path find us. We are surprised to find the helm, or a thread, as we being to navigate in the sea of creativity and inspiration. 

We listen and welcome the heart’s desire and the passion, the pre-verbal seeds, and let them germinate, grow and flourish into stories. 

With intentional ritual we invite inspiration and imagination to freely take flight. We nurture and nourish our voice with the energy required to authentically express and write. Come learn to welcome the mystery with personal rituals and nourish your writer’s heart and soul.
