“So precious, evocative, and emergent. I was stunned at what came from my pen, even when writing about a well worn piece of family history – what arose was something totally fresh and unpredictable!!”

What is your soul longing to express? Give yourself the day to allow whatever that is to come through onto the page. In this intimate gathering, we’ll write in a space of safety and gentle witnessing. Your words will be welcomed, honored, and celebrated. It is amazing how deep the writing can go—and how quickly—in this kind of holding community. 


The day consists of two sessions of writing and sharing, with an hour break in between. We will write short pieces based on prompts, read our work, and have the opportunity to give one another sincere appreciation. 

“I went in open to whatever was going to arise and move through me. So the day definitely fulfilled this expectation, and exceeded it because….no matter what I think could possibly happen, what happens when we write and share is 100% more profound than my wildest imaginings.”

What if I don’t consider myself a writer?

Then you are extra welcome! This workshop is about getting the words flowing. No previous experience is necessary. Often the most powerful stuff comes through folks who are just starting to experiment with putting pen to page.

We look forward to hearing your voice!
