Purposeful Memoir as a Path to a Thriving Future:
A Contemplative Journeying Practice for Writers & Seekers
Led by Jennifer Browdy, PhD

Embark on a unique spiraling journey of inquiry, exploring your past in order to better understand your present, and to move more intentionally into the future you desire.

We’ll enter the contemplative labyrinth of purposeful memoir through three portals, each leading to spirals of inquiry into the deep multi-dimensionality of your life story.

Portal 1: The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir
Portal 2: The Alchemical Journey of Purposeful Memoir
Portal 3: Aligning the Personal, Political and Planetary Through Purposeful Memoir

Opening each of these portals in turn, you’ll create a vibrant triple helix of inquiry into the tapestry of your life story, each strand scintillating with the generative potential for the evolution in consciousness that we are being called to now, individually and collectively.

The deep contemplative journey of purposeful memoir offers a visionary exploration of your inner landscape in its complex relation to the outer planes of time and space.

Purposeful memoir plays with time. We seek to understand our past in order to strengthen ourselves in the present, and move more intentionally into co-creating the thriving future we yearn for.

Purposeful memoir plays with lineage. We explore the ways our biological and epigenetic heritage, as well as our spiritual affinities, shape and guide our lives, understanding that while we may not have choice in what has been handed down to us, we do have choice in what we carry forward, in our own lives and legacies.

Purposeful memoir plays with space. We seek to understand the ways our individual lives are embedded in larger landscapes of place, setting our own life stories into the complex tapestry of history and geography.

Purposeful memoir plays with transformation. We allow ourselves the freedom of our creative imagination, exploring not only what was, but also what might have been, letting the ripples of this alchemical inquiry transform past, present and future.

Over the course of 12 monthly sessions, you’ll open up channels into the past that will give you new insights into your soul purpose in the present, allowing you to move towards the future with more positive strength and resilience.

In keeping with the unique fractal quality of this journey, you can drop in at any point of entry. Take all 12 sessions for a deep, sustained inquiry, or drop in to one or two anywhere along the way, to add a spark of creative energy to your writing and contemplative practice.

You don’t have to “be a writer,” nor do you need to be “writing a memoir” to benefit from the powerful generative inquiry of purposeful memoir!
