Women Writing As a Spiritual Practice

September 24 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT


Gather with spiritually-minded women for connection, exploration and reflection through writing to increase awareness of inner life. This is a nourishing space for women on a path of self-discovery and spiritual exploration to connect around the deeper questions of life . Write in response to poems, prayers, music, silence, quotes, questions and/or visual prompts.

We may share reflections on the prompts or what may have been revealed to you. However, sharing your writing is optional and no feedback will be given on the writing.

Open to anyone regardless of spiritual beliefs or background. Whether you are rooted in a particular faith tradition, consider yourself spiritual but not religious or simply appreciate nature, you’ll get to listen inside. We will also explore some universal spiritual themes such as gratitude, compassion, relationship with self/others, connection with nature and more.

  • Take time for yourself
  • Gather in community with others on a spiritual journey
  • Explore what spirituality means for you at this phase of life
  • Explore your deepest questions
  • Untangle thoughts, feelings and emotions

As with all my women’s circles, I flow in the direction my intuition guides me.

To create sacred space for yourself, please join from a private and quiet space where you can be free from any distractions. If it’s meaningful for you, please light a candle, diffuse essential oils or burn incense during out time together.

No prior writing experience is needed.   

I also facilitate  6-week Writing As a Spiritual Practice circles where you get to connect with the same participants each week. 

About Rev. Patricia

After being a caregiver for my mother in my 30s and early 40s, I quit my job as a healthcare marketing professional after my mother passed away in 2014. It was mostly due to caregiver burnout, but also a burning desire to find out who I was without the caregiver label. I trained as a holistic health coach and started guiding women to make small lifestyle changes that improved their health and well-being. In 2016, I felt uncertain about my future and took a 2-week solo trip to a beach resort in Mexico. One day I rose at 6:00 am and went to the beach to kneel in the water and pray. “God, I surrender. Lead me. Guide me. Show me.” Everything that happened after that was Divine intervention. I often joke that God dragged me to seminary kicking and screaming! I was ordained as an interfaith-interspiritual minister in June 2020 and now guide midlife women and those approaching retirement on journeys of self-discovery, spiritual exploration and connection to the fullest expression of themselves.
