Embodied Writing through Contemplative Inquiry with Rev. Judith Favor

  • Pilgrim Place at the Napier Center 625 Mayflower Road Claremont, CA, 91711 United States (map)

“Embodied writing supports the fruitful discipline of finding and asking ever keener and more beautiful questions. Writing in contemplative community helps us become larger, more generous and more courageous, equal to the fierce invitations extended to us as we grow and mature.”

— D A V I D W H Y T E

We invite you to ask yourself…

  • Who and what helps you identify the questions you don’t want to answer?

  • In the clamor of social noise, where do you find silence to reflect inwardly?

  • During times of political-economic disruption, what softens you enough to notice delicate new forms of awareness emerging?

Showing up for your self at this moment in history is an audacious act. It takes courage to consult your bones long enough to corral new insights onto the page. It takes bravery to plumb your viscera deeply enough to bring forth congruent new questions that lead toward wholeness.

Beautiful questions point toward new possibilities hidden in the spaces between the words. Going toward the creative is where healing and strengthening begin. The annual Epiphany Retreat offers guidance in the fruitful discipline of embodied writing, where Stillpoint’s seasoned community supports your intrinsic need for stillness among friends.

All creativity comes out of an extended encounter with silence.
— Matthew Fox
