Dakini Wisdom Writing & Meditation Retreat
Oct. 27th - Nov. 2th 2019
Spend a week engaging your body, mind, and spirit in creative and restorative practices of writing and meditation, with time to explore the magical Island to the Gods and Goddesses! Directly following the 2019 Ubud Writer’s and Reader’s Festival, Wisdom Publications’ author Kathleen Willis of The Blue Poppy and the Mustard Seed: A Memoir of Loss and Hope, will lead a retreat geared to generating new work or refining existing manuscripts; finding your voice; honing your skills, and beginning or deepening a daily meditation and yoga practice.
Each morning begins with an hour of Tibetan meditation and Vayu Yoga Breathing techniques. Then jumpstart you daily writing time with a craft talk and writing prompts followed by a healthy breakfast of tropical fruits and traditional Indonesian dishes. Enjoy time during dedicated quiet hours at the retreat house or adjourn to a local café or rice field to write for a good portion of the day. There will be opportunities in the afternoon to enjoy excursions to a holy water temple for purification, and ancient meditation caves, as well as other interesting sights. We’ll gather in the early evening for a writing workshop followed by a restorative yoga session for those who are interested before adjourning for dinner and evening activities in the lively village of Ubud, Bali’s art and cultural capital.
This retreat is appropriate for all levels and all genres. Whether you have always wanted to write and are looking for inspiration and guidance, or you are a seasoned writer looking for time and accountability to finish a project this retreat will be transformative and rewarding. This six night/seven day retreat ranges in price from USD $1795 to $2195. (re)Treat yourself! Scroll down and please read the extensive list of inclusions in this package.
