Crafting Personal Stories that are Vivid, Compelling, and True

For all levels; both new and seasoned writers welcome.

If you dream of writing but haven’t been able to find the right time, space, or circumstances to do so, here’s your opportunity. Come write in a vibrant, supportive community. Write so you can understand yourself more deeply, so you can be seen more clearly, and because you sense there are stories living inside you that need to be told.

This program alternates periods of writing with listening to each other—not from a place of judgment or analysis, but with focused attention and deep acceptance. Learn to transform scraps of memory into a rich, written legacy through

  • Creative exercises
  • Guided meditations
  • Evocative writing prompts.

Return home with a myriad of strategies for writing about the past with immediacy and insight.

—Nancy London, author of Hot Flashes, Warm Bottles

“There is no other word to describe Laura’s writing retreat than just plain juicy. Laura’s clear, authentic presence and the sacred space she created provided just the right setting for me to renew and refresh my stale writing habits. I breathed new life into my writing.”
—Erica Ross-Krieger, author of Seven Sacred Attitudes: How to Live in the Richness of the Moment
