Isn’t it time you told your story? We all have revelations from monumental moments in our past when we began to shift spiritually and moved into our own spiritual searching. This class will prompt you into a piece of writing about your own awakening and in the writing process, you’ll discover new insights.

Philip Zaleski, the editor of the Best Spiritual Writing Series, says the Spiritual Memoir is “. . .poetry or prose that deals with the bedrock of human existence, why we are here, where we are going and how we can comport ourselves with dignity along the way.”

It’s about the disillusionment that starts us on our journeys, the quest for truth, and the revelations, solace and joy we experience in the growing process. Telling our stories helps us define who we are and what our purpose is. These stories can help to awaken others as well as encourage others when they enter what Carl Jung calls”the dark night of the soul.”
The writing process brings out unconscious material that teaches us from our inner, higher selves.

Please join me for this writing retreat.

“DeNicola tells us story after story. Rich, full, interior. Seeking validation of her own mystical experiences, she validates those of her readers . . . Interspersed through her written journey are divine poems. I mean divine in the holiest sense. Deborah DeNicola is an inspired poet. She uses her artistry to understand her world.”
—Dr. Susan Corso, The Huffington Post

Excerpt: My dream placed me in an underground tunnel with mud walls. I began to see the outline of a woman covered in clay. With our eyes closed, the group followed me deeper into the cave. The feeling was overwhelmingly claustrophobic, but I crept along the mud floor until I knew instinctively a spot along the wall where I must begin digging. To my surprise, for this was long before my interest in the Black Madonnas, my active imagination uncovered a black African woman, very proud and strong. She was an object, yet she felt alive.. Though she seemed thoroughly other, my emotional attachment to her was immediate. I ended the session with the statement that I knew she had been walled in for a very, very long time.www.thefuturethatbroughtherhere

Learning From Your Dreams Workshop Dec 15th with Deborah DeNicola

Come learn how to increase dream recall and work with dream images in this evening workshop. Dreams can offer new knowledge and produce ideas and solutions. The unconscious mind is a treasure trove you can mine if you have the right tools. The workshop will demonstrate a particular technique for understanding dreams without extensive intellectual analysis. Participants will enter an imaginative dreamscape and probe for feelings, associations and emotions that are grounded in images.  By association, by metaphor, by emotional recognition, dreamers find the unconscious speaking through their images. You will be introduced to a technique that is useful alone or with others. Come with or without a recent dream.

Thurs. 12/15/11 6:30-9pm at the Heartpainter Studio, 310 Esplanade, Suite 50A, Boca Raton Pre-register $20, $25 at the door. Register: or 617-823-1530.
