Write, Unite, Transform: Discovering Stories that Build Community and Make Us Whole

Apr 07 - 12, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Laura Davis

In a world drowning in information and starving for wisdom, gathering in community and expressing the truth is more important than ever. In this transformative five-day writing workshop, we'll step away from the habitual trance of technology and the routines of daily life to connect with our inner voice, discover the healing power of language, and birth powerful true stories onto the page. Creative exercises, evocative prompts, and guided meditation will lead you deeply into the world of language and personal narrative.
