I’m hosting my very first Writers Wellness Retreat on Sunday, March 12th! I’m excited about this retreat because it’s exactly the kind of event that I would have loved to go to when I was writing full time last year and feeling isolated and depressed.
Writing can be such a lonely and scary pursuit.
For a while, I thought I was the only one that felt this way.
Then, I started reading books on the craft of writing and creating art, and I discovered that almost every writer and artist feels lonely, scared, depressed, doubtful and/or anxious at one time or another, and some even feel this way every day. Knowing this, I wanted to create a retreat that would bring together writers who want to practice self-care in order to gain greater creativity and productivity.
I call the retreat a day of mindfulness, movement & expression because it combines three key things that help me with my own writing: meditation, qigong, and freewriting.
I’m leading the sections on meditation and guided freewriting, and my qigong and tai chi teacher, the amazing Kim Ivy, founder of Embrace the Moon, is teaching the section on qigong.
It’s going to be a fun day filled with stories, compassion, and camaraderie. I hope you’ll join us!
Also, if you do attend, as a bonus gift to you, I will personally check in with you a week after the retreat to see how you’re doing with your writing and self-care practice, and whether you need any other resources or support.
Don’t wait. I’m capping the retreat at 10 participants. So, REGISTER TODAY and invite all your writing friends to join you!
