Dan Wakefield, who is one of my favorite people—and a hell of a teacher—is offering this workshop near Philly…maybe you’re looking for a short writing getaway?

Travel: Pendle Hill is just fifteen minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, and twenty minutes outside the city. The campus is near the Wallingford train station. Take the SEPTA Media/Elwyn line from Philadelphia and call for a pick-up.

Evocative exercises and group sharing in a nurturing setting allow us to remember and write about the most meaningful parts of our life’s journey. Re-experiencing events from our past, we gain fresh perspective and appreciation for the richness of our lives. We will write of our experiences at crucial turning points and share our stories in small groups. Come with openness to the process, and leave with stories of your spiritual journey and appreciation for the sacred work of writing and sharing them.

Dan Wakefield is a novelist, journalist, and screenwriter, whose best-selling novels Going All the Way and Starting Over were made into major motion pictures. Bill Moyers called Dan’s Returning: A Spiritual Journey “one of the most important memoirs of the spirit I have ever read.” Dan’s The Story of Your Life: Writing a Spiritual Autobiography and Releasing the Creative Spirit are the basis of popular workshops he leads throughout the United States and abroad.
