Feedback from previous retreats:
“The writing retreat was a fantastic opportunity to devote some time to an activity that often gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. I have lots of ideas for things I’d like to write about and great intentions to get it done, but I’m just too good at displacement activities. Having such a good facilitator made the retreat both enjoyable and productive.”
“This retreat was an incredibly positive and productive experience.”
“I thought it was a really peaceful, calming day. It’s quite rare that you get the chance to just sit down and write without feeling like you’re supposed to be doing something else.”
