Literature, Landscape & Imagination

July 11, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

We will pose the fundamental question not as "Who am I" but "Where am I?" I will be co-facilitating the class in Boulder, Colorado, with my colleague Kate Thompson who is an…

A Sense of Place: Outer Environments, Inner Landscapes–A Writing Workshop

July 16, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Reclaiming the Wild Soul: A Sacred Journey into Earth’s Landscapes

July 26, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 pm

Beyond the chaos and stresses of our modern age, there lies a forgotten yet primal terrain rich in wisdom, healing, and wholeness. In this special service, Mary Reynolds Thompson will guide us on a journey into Earth’s great landscapes of deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands as aspects of our psyches and souls. As we explore the wisdom that each landscape holds for us, we’ll ask the question: Does re-wilding the Earth begin with re-wilding our own nature?

Join me for this Members Only online class via the National Association of Memoir Writers: namw.org/become-a-member/ Blending memoir with advice is not new. Authors as diverse as Henry David Thoreau and Helen Gurley Brown have already done it, brilliantly. But today, the self-help/memoir hybrid is thriving as never before. Why?
