WFH Workshop | Finding Inner Peace: The Art of Spiritual Writing by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé

The Arts House’s Write From Home (WFH) Workshops are back by popular demand! Playing on the concept of “work from home”, local authors explore writing as a way to navigate through this unusual time. In this shared space, find your own community of writers and let them inspire you through this isolation. Beginning in July, this second run of workshops will also see Chinese and Malay writing workshops added to the series.

What meaning does life hold for you? What spiritual lessons have been especially illuminating? If you could pen these contemplative insights, what wisdom or struggle would be articulated? In a world that has slowed down, many people are finding time to reflect on their own life purpose. In the first session of this two-part workshop, participants discuss some contemporary texts exploring spiritual identity and practice; at the same time, we will share our own personal journeying into such introspection. A writing exercise will help participants generate new work, which we will together read and discuss in the second session within this safe, open space.

Facilitated by award-winning author Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, this event will be conducted online. Participants receive a set of readings specially curated for this event.

Sessions will be held:
Saturday, 11 July 3pm-5pm
Sunday, 12 July 3pm-5pm
