Vista Verde Retreat Center
All-Inclusive 5 Day Writers Retreat - May 24 - 28, 2019
My heart burst open with excitement when I discovered Chloe's Retreat online and spoke to her the night before it was to begin. I packed my bag and drove the 5 ½ hours to the retreat the next morning. This was exactly what I needed! I have been writing my personal journey for nearly 30 years. My block has been in finding a context/container where people will feel and apply the lessons and energetic practices I share, rather than simply thinking about what I have written.
By applying the structure and intuitive style of writing Chloe shares, visually setting the scene and expressing the feeling-tone of the message, I have shifted from telling a story to bringing the reader into the experience of what I am writing. At the Retreat, Chloe created an intimate environment while she wove a tapestry of wisdom, healing experiences for personal breakthroughs, and practical writing time with feedback and support from within the group. My body felt clear and nurtured with Nye's life-generating meals, Steve's gentle morning yoga & herbal teas and Jenny's way of knowing exactly what I needed as she tuned my body through her massage and so much more!
I highly recommend the experience of the Retreat and all the ways Chloe shares her unique gifts! I continue to carry with me the love that was shared by the staff and each woman attending at the Retreat.

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."
