Write Your Way In Fall Retreat at Shawnigan Lake

October 4-6, 2019

This retreat offers the opportunity to relax into your authentic voice, stretch those writing muscles, and focus on the story you want to tell. In whatever form you want to tell it—poetry, fiction, memoir or essay. All in a safe and nurturing eco-space.

Writing in the Sanctuary

Whether you are reviving a dream of writing or well-established in your practice; an old pro or a nervous beginner, this retreat is certain to inspire and motivate you to explore, take risks, and listen deeply.

The weekend program includes sensory exercises and meditation to heighten awareness and deepen your experience.

Guided writing exercises are facilitated by Deepam with the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method.
