Outdoor Writing Retreat
July 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
Where spirituality, nature, and writing meet
In honor of the Buck Moon on July 27th, Pen to Paper Retreats is hosting their first outdoor writing retreat for women seeking a spiritual connection in collaboration with Julie Rodriguez of Heal with Sole—an educational outreach program that encourages individuals to nurture their soul in nature.
This retreat begins with a brief hiking basic orientation and guided hike in the Palisades Interstate Park that will help you get out of your comfort zone and back in touch with the healing power of nature.
Then, we will all replenish with a healthy lunch and beverages followed by a cool down and a short meditation to get ourselves ready for a writing workshop. Cindy, of Pen to Paper Retreats, will lead this workshop and share her personal writing ritual complete with music, incense, and candles.
“Writing as a Spiritual Practice” will start with reflecting on the hike, learning how nature, writing, and spirituality connect, and end with a writing exercise focused on our own stories to lead to greater consciousness, wisdom, and self-awareness—all cornerstones of honoring one’s intuition and spirituality.
10:15-1:00PM: Hiking (nut-based healthy snack and water included)
2:15-3:45PM: “Writing as a Spiritual Practice” Workshop
