August 22-27, 2022

This Retreat is for you if:

You are struggling to connect to your writers voice and begin your book.

You are already working on your book, but are feeling distraction, avoidance, and disruptions, you are not able to create sacred space and write.

You are experiencing pain and grief, both inwardly and outwardly, and you are unsure how to process these emotions and integrate them into authentic power for storytelling.

You are looking for sacred land, sacred community, and a safe place to crack open the next level of self-expression and experience the writing of your story.

You need to break away from the chaos of all the moving pieces of life.

Your busy schedule is keeping you from your CREATIVE DREAMS.

During my 9 years as a writer and story medicine coach, I see and feel that we all need support, nourishment, and connection to self to release our stories. Yet, we feel doubt, fear, and overwhelmed when leaping into the process of writing a book.

But there is a way through this, there is a deeper soul knowing that can change the whole book writing experience.

We must find our way back to the SOUL and access our true VOICE.

I took this journey when I wrote my Memoir, The Soulful Child: Twelve Years in the Wilderness. This little girl became the foundation for my writer’s voice and continues to impact many through her soul connection.

                Embrace The Wildness of Your Own Story & Be Guided Through a Sacred Process to Write Your Book

                Returning to the roots of your authentic self creates a pathway for the writer within you to come to life. This retreat we will focus on discovering your wild edges of creative expression, by releasing the wounded child and connecting back to your soul knowing. You will experience the magical child of the heart who holds the full potential for your author within to embrace and write your story. 

                Experience the wonder of this magical location. Sit in this library soaking up the pages of good literacy, while opening your HEART to the boundless adventure of storytelling.

                The Power in Understanding & Healing the Wounded Child Will Be Both Priceless for Writing and Life

                Understanding the wounded child archetypes will change your whole creative process and bring your magical child back in your writing, giving way to the adult voice in a whole new way.
                Discover any unattended wounds through sacred RITUAL  and WRITING.
                Discover the LIGHT in your story and the LIFELINES that show your transcendence. 
                Discover DANCE and MOVEMENT as healing of the body and soul. 
                Discover  FOOD as MEDICINE for complete nourishment, awareness, and community gathering. 
                Discover your Tribe, from our incredible facilitators to our community of writers.
