Seeding Soul Stories:
An Online Experiential Writing Group

“We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.” –Jonathan Gottshall, The Storytelling Animal


“Each person is a story that the Soul of the World wants to tell to itself.” – Michael Meade


This series is limited to 10 participants, so register now to reserve your space.


Are you passionate about writing? Are you attending the unconscious in your writing and your life? Are you yearning for a community in which you can go deeper to uncover, discover, and record the myths, metaphors, images and stories you find within? Are you ready to share and listen to authentic stories?

If you answered yes to any of the above, we invite you to Seeding Soul Stories, a soul-filled online experiential course on writing and story. Participants will be made up of imaginal activists, poets, writers, and storytellers ready to seed and harvest their Soul Stories – just like you.  

Here is what you may experience from your participation:

  • Through powerful exercises, you will experience both the personal and collective unconscious and find your unique writing voice
  • Discover more of the stories that wish to be known – from the past, present, & future
  • Tap into the personal and collective stories wanting to be known, honoring the creative, mysterious, and sometimes numinous images that arise in a soulful and creative container
  • Learn how to go on inner pilgrimages with your pen
  • Explore the healing power of being part of a safe and supportive community as you write, share, and listen to the stories that come forward during our time together

  • Seeding Soul Stories 2 starting tonight.  Mark and I would love for you to be part of this exciting course.

  • The job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.  --Ken Kesey 

    Come tend seeds of mystery in the garden of your imagination with us. Still a few spots left in our writing group. 

  • Are you passionate and soulfully connected to your writing? Could you benefit from a container that guides you to deeper roots, more precious tendrils, and hidden blooms in your writing--maybe also in your life? Are you ready to share and listen to the soil and seeds of your writing and others? 

    If so, please join us!

  • FYI, the Early Bird Special ends on May 31st!
