Join Susan Piver, Shambhala meditation teacher and the bestselling author of eight books on a week-long writing and meditation retreat set in the tranquil French countryside in June, the most beautiful time of year. Relax your mind, enhance your creativity, and connect with your true voice.
What do writers want more than anything in the world? Time to write. Yet even if such precious time could be found, it’s not always easy to settle into the writing groove. This retreat presents a unique opportunity for all who wish for some time and space to settle into an environment that is conducive to inspiration, imagination, and expression.
Supported by the encouraging yet non-intrusive presence of other writers, the focus of this program is writing. Short periods of the day will also be dedicated to meditation, a discipline that can truly help us synchronize mind and body in a way that supports the creative process. Evenings will offer a precious opportunity to discuss our work together and open new windows of vision, insight, and revelation.
Meant for writers of all genres and levels, this retreat is open to anyone who may wish to write, whether your preference is fiction, non-fiction, poetry, songwriting, screenwriting, or the simple wish to spend time journaling. Those new to meditation practice are fully welcome and detailed instruction will be offered.
Please note that the majority of time will be spent on personal writing rather than writing exercises. Bring your ideas, works-in-progress, or simply your wish to devote attention to your creativity.
