Retreats are geared to generating new work or refining existing pieces and manuscripts; finding your voice; honing your skills, and beginning or deepening a daily meditation practice.
Each morning begins with an hour of Tibetan meditation and Vayu Yoga Breathing exercises. Jumpstart you daily writing time with a craft talk and writing prompts. Enjoy time during dedicated quiet hours at the retreat house, or adjourn to a local café or outdoor local to write for a good portion of the day. There will be opportunities in the afternoon to enjoy excursions to interesting sights. We’ll gather in the early evenings for a writing workshop followed by more meditation and restorative yoga session before adjourning for dinner and evening activities.
These retreats are 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 these retreats will be transformative and rewarding.
