“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake,” wrote Thoreau. What does it mean to be awakened, and how can writing help us to reawaken and stay awake? Karen Hering, author of Writing to Wake the Soul, returns to Door County to lead an afternoon of guided writing for writers and non-writers alike who wish to wake up to their own inner truths and to the truths of our times.

Karen Hering is consulting literary minister at Unity Church-Unitarian in St. Paul, Minnesota. She leads retreats and programs near and far for people using writing as a spiritual practice and a tool for healing and social action. A silver Nautilus Award winner, her book Writing to Wake the Soul was selected as one of the best spiritual books of 2013. Visit for more information about Karen.

Hering will be the guest speaker at the UU Fellowship the morning of October 16 at 10 am. To register for the workshop, contact 854-7559 or with you name and email address.
