Welcome to Transforming Writers.
Transforming Writers uniquely focuses on writing as a tool for transformation and social change.
Our next major event is May 16-19 2014 where we will offer a program featuring Andrew Harvey as part of the Harmony Festival in Warburton. Like our Facebook page for updates. For more details visit the Harmony Festival website.
We recently hosted author Andrew Harvey in a series of workshops and discussions.
Andrew Harvey is a renowned and distinguished mystical scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, poet, novelist, spiritual teacher and writer, and architect of Sacred Activism. He returns to Warburton to extend on his inspiring teachings of 2012.
From his most recent book Radical Passion Andrew says:
This culmination of award-winning author Andrew Harvey’s life’s work bridges the great divide between spiritual resignation and engaged spiritual activism. A manifesto for the transformation of the world through the fusion of deep mystical peace with the clarity of radical wisdom, it is a wake-up call to put love and compassion to urgent, focused action. According to Harvey, we are in a massive global crisis reflected by a mass media addicted to violence and trivialization at a moment when what the world actually needs is profound inspiration, a return to the heart-centered way of the Divine Feminine, the words of the mystics throughout the ages, and the cultivation of the nonviolent philosophies of Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi, and the Dalai Lama.
What is Transforming Writers?
Through a series of presentations, workshops, experiential and practical writing programs, interactive panel discussions and performance, we will bring writers and those interested in all forms of creative expression together in community to work with well regarded, world leaders in the field of writing for change and sacred activism. While some of our workshops will include opportunities for writing and expression, others will focus on developing the internal world of the individual. This reflects our philosophy that writing and creativity are transformative acts and it is through the evolution of the Self, both internally and externally, that we are able to bring our gifts to the world with integrity and a sense of the sacred.
Transforming Writers is proud to present world renowned authors and presenters who can inspire us to further our journeys. We are also committed to supporting local authors and each other.
Transforming Writers will offer a series of weekend events through the year from the pristine town of Warburton, in the Upper Yarra Valley, 70 kilometres east of Melbourne.
Please join us and ‘ignite the word’.
