Join an intimate circle of women for a journey toward self-healing through written expression. The day-long Retreat will be held at a private venue near Victoria Drive + 40th and at beautiful Trout Lake Park.

The Retreat will include a check-in; guided visualizations; inspiring writing prompts; exercises to invite us to connect to the creative, the divine and ourselves through writing; optional sharing of work; an intro to energy healing; and dialogue. No writing experience required!

Women are invited to bring a picnic lunch; a blanket to sit on; a notebook and writing utensil/laptop; and five minutes’ worth of writing to share in a non-critical, listening circle.
