‘Sacred Experiences’ topic of upcoming writing workshop
A February workshop in creative expression with poet Ray McGinnis in Hilo will focus on “Writing the Sacred Experiences of Journaling our Grief.”
McGinnis is a poet and psalm enthusiast and has written in journals all his life. He has taught 8,000 people how to write prayers, poetry and autobiographies, all the while guiding them to bring their whole heart, mind and spirit to the process.
“Explore and understand our grieving experiences with a sense of depth as you connect with the sacred expressed by writers and discuss the intent and meaning of these treasurerd memories,” said the Rev. Tom Olcott of the Church of the Holy Cross, UCC, which is hosting the event.
“You will also enter on a path to creating our own sacred appreciation of how grieving is a natural spiritual process.”
The workshop will be from 3-6 p.m. on Feb. 24, in the Holy Cross Building of Faith at 440 West Lanikaula St. Phone 835-1283, or just drop in.
The session is open to all, with a registration fee of $15.
Olcott said the church will pay the fee for its members who wish to participate in this workshop.
