Open to all self-identified women

Like meditation, writing is a powerful way to wake up to the ordinary and extraordinary moments of our human lives. Through sharing our stories, we connect with ourselves, each other, and the world we live in. But women’s stories have often been excluded from the spiritual canon — dismissed as too ordinary, too emotional, too wild, or too messy to convey awakening wisdom. In this retreat, we will awaken our creative energies, reconnect with our authentic voices, and express the deep truth of who we are — through the powerful combination of creative writing, mindfulness meditation, and gentle movement explorations.

Please bring something to write with–journal and pencil or pen, or laptop/iPad if you prefer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to attend, we still have room and are still planning on holding this program. Please be aware that we currently have no power at Spirit Rock, so be sure to charge phone and laptop (if you plan to use it) before you arrive here tomorrow. Bring back up writing materials just in case!
