The Writer’s Journey: Crafting Personal Stories that are Vivid, Compelling and True 

Apr 06 - 08, 2018 Begins in 1 month
with Laura Davis

Many of us hold a deep dream of wanting to write. We want to write so we can understand ourselves more deeply and so that we can be seen. We sense that there are stories living inside of us that need to be told, but in our busy lives, we have not been able to create the time, space, or circumstances in which to do so. This workshop will give you that time. In our hours together, we will create a vibrant, supportive writing community.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.
