About this event

Help is here to bring your story to life! These sessions allow you to reflect on your life and uncover hidden truths and patterns. Get to know yourself, connect with others more authentically, initiate healing, and discover life-changing gifts.

Let us help you write in ways that bring freedom and meaning--to yourself and others.

July 20

Doubt in my tradition is something that is very helpful. Because of doubt, you can thirst more and you will get a higher kind of proof.” - Thích Nhất Hạnh

Conversations about faith and doubt can be hard, and awkward. How can we talk about being grounded in a faith tradition while also being seekers or questioning believers?

Join writers, Lori Sebastianutti and Linda Trinh, as we explore these ideas. Bring your notebook, pen, pencil, for an evocative writing exercise to explore your own spiritual questions.

Lori Sebastianutti is an author of award-winning creative nonfiction that interrogates infertility, feminism, and the Catholic faith. Central to the essay collection she is building is how first- generation settler Canadians try to navigate spiritual obligations and traditions in the face of the mandate to build a new world that is sustainable, equitable, and just.

Linda Trinh is a Vietnamese Canadian author who writes non-fiction and fiction for adults and children. Her work has appeared in anthologies and literary magazines, and she will publish the early chapter book series, The Nguyen Kids, in October 2022. Her writing explores her Buddhist upbringing, love of world mythologies, and travel to sacred spaces.

Sessions are free, and open to all. You need not be a writer to take part.

Life writing is the art of plumbing truth and mystery, and finding your authentic voice. We are here to help you focus your energy, and shed whatever doubts and fears make you hold your tongue. Join this month’s experiential session, focused on simple writing exercises you can do with paper and pen or your favorite writing instrument.

Please, share this invite with others who are seeking ways to ignite their writing practice.
