[VOICES] Vista Verde Retreat Center - Northern New Mexico
Voices Writers Retreat - September 25 to 30, 2019
About Vista Verde Retreat Center...
People always tell me I am a great communicator…in person. My voice has told many interesting stories about my life and the Divine.
However, I was not so smooth and exciting when I wrote. I knew I had stories that would help other women to find their strength and their happiness, but I didn’t understand how to get my heart & soul to make sense on paper.
Then I met Chloe.
She is an amazing teacher, who put structure to my story and at the same time, encouraged it to flow from my heart.
My story came alive because Chloe knew how to breathe life into it, thru her own story of triumph. When I read Chloe’s book, The Soulful Child, I knew she was aligned with my principles of love & integrity. I could figuratively “relax into her arms” and have her gently guide me along my path as a writer.
A group of 6 women gathered in a beautiful retreat house, in Sedona AZ, to write our stories. We needed to be well cared for and nourished. Chloe was not alone in supporting us, in fact we had 6 staff members… wow! Jess & Ben filmed, while the others nourished us with yoga, massage and Nye’s delicious, home cooked meals.
Those 5 days taught me a great deal about written communication and ignited the fire in me to tell my stories to the world.
Thank you Thank you Thank you
I love you I love you I love you.

Writing a book was a dream of mine and I am so glad that I started working with Chloe to accomplish this goal. I appreciated that Chloe's approach and process is an intuitive one. It was important to me that the writing of this book come from my heart, and Chloe has a natural knack for facilitating that. It was powerful to see a book coming together and I also learned a lot about the craft of writing. My natural approach would have been to be very structured: write an outline, flesh out the different parts of the outline, etc. However, Chloe was able to bring out the creative writer in me, rather than the list maker, through her intuitive process. And not only do I have a rough book manuscript that I will publish by the end of 2018, an added value is the increase in creativity in other areas of my life.

"Chloe came into my life at the perfect time. Through her unique and inspiring approach, I have learned how to cultivate the creative voice within me that always was, but since childhood I hadn't given myself permission to explore. All the negative and limiting missives that held me back are diminished in the face of Chloe's acumen."
"I am writing now, and with Chloe's insightful and soul-rich wisdom, the anxiety, angst, and doubt around the process has receded. This creative journey with Chloe, coupled with her sound knowledge of writing mechanics, has been extraordinarily transformational. Her uplifting and deeply personal approach to coaching has brightened and enlivened my whole creative being."
