Writing & Yoga Retreat: The Voice of Transformation

Saturday, May 20, 2017 • 9:00am-4:00pm

 

Poems have long been powerful agents of change.

 

Their potency moves us on many levels, from our personal world to the world at large. Our day-long workshop takes a deep look at the transformational qualities of poetry. Join us to:

  • Begin the day with a gentle and authentic yoga practice which taps into self-reflection and creates space for transformation
  • Move into a discussion of how form and poetic elements can impact the writer’s message
  • Launch into your own writing, giving voice to a pressing need or uncovering the potential for change in your life

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to put aside obligations and distractions to focus on yourself. To hear yourself more clearly. To nurture your writing. And to identify your potential for transformation.

 

A nourishing lunch is included. Space is limited; please register early.

 

Fee for full day and lunch is $110.00. Please note a full refund will be given prior to May 10.

Note: For the morning yoga practice, please wear anything that you can comfortably bend and stretch in — “official” yoga clothes are not necessary.  And because the body cools down during relaxation, you may want to bring an extra layer, like a light blanket or fleece and socks.

Our first Writing & Yoga Retreat held on April 30, 2016 was a huge success and received a wonderful write-up in Huffington Post by author and retreat attendee Craig Sherman. Click here to read it!
