The Retreat seeks to assist writers (or those willing to explore the possibility) with the skills necessary to find and share their voice with the world -- share a personal story, keep a private journal, improve your writing skills, or simply increase your level of joy and satisfaction in your life.

Over the weekend we discover that writing can be a transformative tool for self-discovery, meaningful connection to others and an overall sense of wellness. We will use simple mindfulness techniques such as breathing, relaxation, meditation (including walking meditation), focus and insight exercises to enhance one's powers of creativity and expression.

We will learn about the 4 Noble Truths of Mindful Writers and engage in writing exercises to help you find your voice, share your Story, write as healing, keep a journal, edit your work, and explore where to publish your writing. Whether your goals are writing a memoir, blogging, public speaking, business communications, social media posting, personal essay or journal writing, this weekend is for students with all motivations and levels of experience. There will be plenty of time to sit and write throughout the 2 days. Please bring a book and pen to write in or a laptop depending on your preference.

Retreatants will be able to join with Chenrezig's activities in the Main Gompa including morning and evening activities. Saturday 10:00am to Sunday 3:00pm Held in the Tara room Facility fee $108 Meals and Accommodation available separately.
