Inquiry Writing/Journaling: A Contemplative Practice

Workshop/Retreat available by request for your group

Kathleen Grittner

Inquiry writing is a kind of cross-training for the brain that keeps the mind strong

and resilient resulting in a more integrated thought process that helps you

navigate your ever-changing life more effectively. It is a way to stay in touch with

where you are and to tap your inner resources and guidance.

Writing methods useful for posing life’s questions and allowing responses to

arise will be presented and practiced during this retreat. It is a time for deep

listening to your authentic self.

”They can be like a sun, words. They can do for the heart what light can for a field” - John of the Cross
