In March, I hosted my inaugural Writers Wellness Retreat focused on practicing self-care in order to gain greater creativity and productivity. This retreat will still focus on self-care, but the theme this time is Winter Dreaming.
In nature, winter is the season for migration, hibernation, and staying alive. For writers, it’s the perfect season for dreaming, planning, and restoration.
Through meditation, use the power of breath to practice mindfulness and connect with your inner self. Through guided writing exercises, unveil your writing dream for the new year and discover ways to reach it. Through the sharing of stories, gain perspective, unearth possibilities, and enjoy camaraderie with fellow writers. Experience all of this at Embrace the Moon, a beautiful space in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.
Lunch, snacks, tea, and self-care goody bags will be provided.
If you want to know more, please read Jeanie’s beautiful post of her experience at my last retreat. And, if you attended that one, please know that this retreat will feature completely different meditations, guided writing exercises, and stories.
