Inspired by Natalie Goldman’s recent book The True Secret of Writing: Connecting Life with Language, join us for a morning meditation, movement and writing retreat. Everyone is welcome, new and experienced meditators, aspiring writers, established writers, and writers of any genre. Meditation instruction will be available at 9 am and 1 PM for anyone new to meditation.

We’ll spend the day practicing sitting meditation, exploring our genuine, awake hearts, mindful movement through walking meditation (and perhaps a little gentle stretching or yoga) and writing sessions. Optional writing prompts will be offered. There will be an opportunity to share our words as well.

Come for the whole day or join us for morning or afternoon session. If you’re staying for the whole day, please bring a lunch.


Morning session: 9:00 – Noon
Lunch: Noon – 1:00
Afternoon session: 1:00 – 5:00 (includes reception with optional reading at 4:30)
