I will be teaching "Writing Your Spiritual Will" the week of Aug. 3-9, 2015. Class members will spend time understanding who they are as spiritual beings and how to pass along to those who follow what is vital to them. Then they will write drafts of letters, poems and essays to share either with individual family members, their entire families or a much broader audience. They will share their writing with the class first, however. We'll be meeting in the retreat atmosphere of Casa del Sol on the ranch grounds.
One of the resources we'll be using is my latest book, Woodstock: A Story of Middle Americans, which I consider in many ways a spiritual will.
When the online catalog link to the class is available I'll post it here.
For more information about the ranch, click on this Ghost Ranch link. The ranch is a national Presbyterian conference center in northern New Mexico, about an hour north of Santa Fe in the beautiful red rock hills that Georgia O'Keeffe painted so often.
I hope my photo here from Ghost Ranch gives you at least a taste of what you can expect there.
Classes typically meet each morning from 9 until noon and each evening from 7 to 8:30. It's a wonderful, relaxed-but-stimulating atmosphere.
And, no, you don't have to be a Presbyterian to join us. People of any faith, and none, are welcome. If you have questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
