Finding the Voice Inside: Writing as a Spiritual Quest for Women
Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, 2002 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 120 pages
Finding the Voice Inside invites women to name, honor and explore their female experience as it differs from male experience. Doing this work in a group and hearing themselves and others read aloud what's been written, women re-awaken to what they don't always know that they know. Doing these exercises alone can continue the tradition of diary, journal and letter writing that makes up our knowledge of women's lives throughout history. In their effort to balance the male-constructed view of the world, women must first recreate the images, symbols, metaphors and truths of their own lives, as women.
