Push your writing through the trite and the boring to something fresh, something transformative.
If it is true for you that sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me, then your words are soft, weak and ineffective. Words can hurt; words can shatter; words can strip you naked, forcing you to see the truth no matter how precious the lies.
This is the kind of word craft that awardwinning author and renowned spirituality teacher Rami Shapiro promotes in this fresh and unapologetic guide to writing as a spiritual practice. It isn t about writing spiritual books or about the romance of writing. It doesn t cover the ins and outs of publishing and building a brand. Rather, it explores the bedrock of spiritual awakening and how writing can shatter you upon it. Along with award-winning writer and writing coach Aaron Shapiro, he approaches writing the way a spiritual seeker uses meditation and chant to shift from narrow mind to spacious mind and see through the distorting lens of the self-centered self to the larger reality that includes and transcends it.
They guide you in how to use writing to discover the deeper reality of life and how best to livein harmony with it.
