About the Event
As Spring blooms around us, let's open our minds together at the ...
Spring Writing Retreat in a gorgeous Home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright - nestled in the woods on Clausland Mountain, in Rockland County, New York!
How will we spend this sacred time together?
There is nothing quite like writing in community - sitting in spaces carved out for creativity - while sipping tea, gazing out the window, or finding a spot in nature to nestle into with your pen in hand.
1:1 Time with your Writing Coach (that’s me!)
I will be there for “Spot Coaching” to answer specific questions you may have or to gently nudge you over a potential writing “hump” during the retreat.
A Supportive Workshopping Experience
We will convene as a group to workshop your writing (3-5 pages) in a suportive and constructive way that focuses on Positive Feedback and will help move your project along. Workshops will be broken up into two sessions, with ample breaks between each.
Craft Building & Journal Writing Prompts
We will have a “Craft Talk” that focuses on an important aspect of writing, no matter your genre. You will also be given a journal writing prompt designed to ground you in Nature - Yours and the Earth’s - encouraging connection to Self, Earth and Other.
Reading & Relaxation
Relaxation Station - Donna Lightfoot, an expert reflexologist will do her magic to help ground and connect you to your body by doing reflexology on your hands. You can find her on FB at Donna Lightfoot-Connor.
How good does it get?!
And feel free to peruse books that may inspire your writing or bring your own to share and find a nook or cozy-up on the couch and read in front of the fire to get into your writing or decompress.
Rituals & Fire!
We will have a Grounding and Centering Ceremony to begin and then talk about how to create rituals in your writing routine to ground you in your writing space. Then we will sit, stand or even dance around a fire pit and tap into the passion that fuels our creative fires!
Releasing and Opening are wonderful ways to create space and spring lends itself to that, as we can get into harmony with the blooming nature around us. We will talk about what it is like to "begin anew" in our writing lives and how important each stage of our unique writing process is - so we can honor it and honor ourselves!
And of course, we can’t forget about the food!
Thoughtfully prepared organic food will be whipped up by our personal food genius, Chef Tara Ciannella and beautifully arranged to be served to you! Saturday lunch is provided, along with healthy snacks to keep your energy up throughout the day.
(Pescatarian and Vegetarian options - please let us know of any dietary restrictions.)
