COASTAL WRITING RETREAT: Connect with Your Creativity (Writing--and more--as Renewal and Inspiration)
Back by popular request: a weekend writing retreat full of activities to renew yourself and reconnect you to your creativity. This retreat is for everyone, whether you are a practicing writer, closet writer, or have yet to pick up the pen writer! Your teacher and author Maureen Ryan Griffin uses techniques and prompts that will spur your imagination, and can be used to create non-fiction, fiction, and or poetry, the choice is yours.
THE HEALING POWER OF WORDS: (Writing As a Healing Process)
What benefits can writing provide – physically, mentally, spiritually? Are some ways of writing more healing than others? And can we create quality literary work as we heal? In this retreat that incorporates recent discoveries in the field of mind-body-spirit connection and Dr. James Pennebaker’s ground-breaking ideas on writing as a way to move through loss and grief, you’ll learn methods of writing that help navigate loss and grief on your life path of growth and wholeness. You will choose your ideal balance between community time and solitude as you use writing as a transformational tool in any way that best serves you. And, if you’re looking, you’ll find the genesis of new poetry, creative non-fiction, and/or fiction. Note: Tears honored. Laughter likely. Inspiration guaranteed. $418.00 for writing sessions, two nights' lodging, two breakfasts and Saturday lunch (tax and Saturday dinner at a local restaurant not included).
Additionally, for those who might like to stay another day to work on their writing, or to just enjoy the beach, the Inn is offering Coastal Writing Retreat participants the opportunity to stay Sunday night, 1/2 price. Add $30.00 per night if you would like a grand room. You will have ample time to relax in your room, on the beach, or your private screened in porch. The group typically goes out to dinner together on Saturday, but you can choose to go on your own and explore if you wish.
All you will need to bring is a copy of "Spinning Words into Gold" which will be available at the retreat for $23.54. For more information on the workshop visit www.MaureenRyanGriffin.com
