Do you want to explore how writing can help you come into alignment both within yourself and with a larger, more just world?
In this retreat, participants will have time to explore different strategies of connecting with their innate wisdom and with the sacred. In a world so often out of balance, most of us live in a state of contradiction. We will use writing practice to work through internal contradictions. Looking at texts from Rumi to Mary Oliver to our own work, and through writing exercises, meditation, and discussion, we will explore ways to access and express the sacred always around us and to create from a place of integrity and clarity. Designed equally for beginning writers and professional writers, the retreat will also look at ways to incorporate writing as a transformative practice throughout our lives.
Come challenge and also nourish yourself with a day of reflection and creation.
