Finding Your Voice with Writing
Writing your truths and your stories is therapeutic. This 5-day intensive experience at Ghost Ranch’s inner retreat center, Casa del Sol, will create a space that is safe and supportive for you to find your truest words, hone your writing and use your most authentic voice.
Each day we will use contemplative practices such as meditation, silent hikes, guided journaling and art-making to cultivate awareness, presence, and compassion. We will create a safe space that will help you to connect deeply with yourself and with others, to hear your inner voices and to allow your words to flow freely.
We will focus on writing as a practice of self-awareness. We will use poetry to awaken passions and focus on wonder, awe and the raw emotional core of our creative instincts.
The retreat will include direct focus on the craft aspects of writing, group discussions, generative writing exercises, workshop experiences, and plenty of structured time for writing. You will leave having written poetry and prose, and having learned important habits for sustaining a life-giving writing practice at home. This retreat is flexible enough for writers of any level.
