Writing can be a spiritual practice that leads you to a profound experience of timelessness and present-moment awareness. The same is also true of meditation. The combination of a writing and meditation practice in a retreat setting can positively transform one's life: physically, spiritually, and emotionally. During this retreat you'll be taught an ancient, powerful meditation practice from the yoga tradition that will allow you to let go of stress and open yourself up to who you are — outside of the roles and relationships you've taken on or the habits of mind that you've grown accustomed to. With your attention on silence, stillness, and the present moment, you'll listen to and trust your creative voice as you transcend your inner critic and express your inherent creativity through writing exercises. You'll develop confidence and clarity in your own vision and expression. Mindfulness practices are also woven throughout the workshop. This is a perfect retreat for both aspiring writers and experienced authors.
