Additional kick-off Here You Begin workshop $85/person, partners welcome
Rejuvenate and re inspire your writer/artist self with the experience of a retreat in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, attending workshop sessions along with plenty of time to listen and explore your soul, your creativity and your voice.
This is a special 4-night, 3-day workshop helping to break though blocks and struggles experienced in writing, or offering you the opportunity to work on great starts or polishing the work you bring.
It's held in the Rockies at a time when grasses are green and days are long and beautiful. Provided is extra time for numerous one-on-one sessions as well as for walks, hikes, riding and writing.
You will stay near other attendees (no more than 10 workshop participants for maximum private sessions) in a lovely ranch accommodation in the quiet of the Rockies. You have a choice of accommodation (paid separately), from writing lodge rooms to cabins for those who wish to sequester and focus, or to have quiet time and place.
There are morning writing workshops and feedback on your work (or reasons for not working in the case of the Writer's Block sessions), followed by afternoons largely free for writing and rejuvenating in nature's beauty.
Partners are welcome to accompany you, and may enjoy the ranch amenities (pools, massage, hot tubs, riding) while you attend sessions and/or work. Family or partners may join us for the welcome soirée and evening meals.
There is time for sitting at the top of a peak or watching the river that cuts through the ranch, searching for inspiration in the light reflecting off the water.
The workshop dates for Autumn 2016 and Summer 2017 are still being planned. Check back for more information.
You may also arrive a day early in order to attend a kick-off Here You Begin day-long workshop on finding your inspiration, gifts and how to create the work you are here to do.
It's a great start to touching base with your motivation and energy as well as your bottom line for how to spend the time of your life while here.
This workshop will fill fast as it is half as expensive as others offered and provides more one-on-one time with your professional Editor/Mentor/Coach than any other.
