About The Workshop
What It Is:

Opening the Eye of the Heart is a 30 day course in writing as spiritual practice. In addition to daily writings, this workshop will include daily readings of poems from great visionary and mystical poets of the East and West, as well as weekly lessons, exercises, and live sessions. Last but not least, it will include a forum for participants to share their writings and reflections with an intimate group of fellow writers.

What You’ll Get Out Of It:

By the completion of the course you will have written a collection of at least 28 poems, received insights into your own creative process, established a daily writing practice, and imbibed lessons passed down from celebrated writers and poets. In addition, you will be part of an intimate community of writers and seekers who will support your journey and sharing together will, God willing, nurture self-transformation, ego-transcendence, courage, deep connection, and the ability to express oneself effectively and sincerely.

When/Where Is It:

All aspects of the workshop can be engaged with on your own schedule. Weekly lessons and exercises will be pre-recorded and can be completed at your own convenience.

We will have a closed Facebook group that will serve as our forum for sharing poems and reflections.

Who It’s For:

This course is designed for anyone who wants to develop their innate creativity and to not only deepen their self-expression but deepen their self-awareness in the process. Whether you are an aspiring poet or artist; an established writer already; an individual who would like to connect with other like-minded artistic people; or someone who would simply like to develop their creativity, receptivity to inspiration, and capacities for meditation and reflection, then, this course is made for you.
