We live in a melting pot of sacred story — Native American, Jewish, Christian, Islamic, Voodoo, Hindu, Druid, Buddhist… Traditions from all over the world have infused North American culture with elements of their sacred texts and oral traditions. Whether we actively practice a faith or not, we encounter sacred stories and symbols everywhere: in songs, children’s stories, poems, team mascots, business logos, and other forms of media. What can sacred stories reveal about our individual and collective life stories? 
Please join me as we enter these sacred story worlds through visualization, stream-of-consciousness writing, and dynamic discussion in a safe and supportive environment. No writing experience necessary — All are welcome!
