"I have been opened and touched in so many ways. I am in awe and will treasure this experience forever."

--Tamara Myers

"I valued the sacred space and the pace of the retreat."

--Melinda Iuster

"I try to enter every space empty-handed and openhearted, without judgment. I was surprised by how close I felt with the women in my group. And I was surprised by the magnitude, the depth and breadth of all I'll leave with. I didn't expect that."

--Kathy Sievert, Anchorage, AK

After more than a dozen years leading transformative writing retreats in Northern California and internationally, I'd like to invite you to a reprise of the retreat that was personally the most moving for me: "Writing as a Pathway Through Grief, Loss, Uncertainty, and Change."

This retreat is for people who are at a crossroads in their lives, whether due to the death of someone close to you, a loss like divorce, empty nest, or geographical move, an illness, a major life transition, a shift in status, aging, or simply the deep inner urge to chart a new course or make a significant change in your life. If you are feeling ripe with uncertainty or in transition into the next phase of your life, this retreat is for you.

Experience the power of healing, the gift of supportive community and the profound impact guided writing can have in facing the unknown with courage, letting go, finding clarity, and embracing change.

"I haven't felt this kind of 'yippiness,' 'yahoo,' 'Let's-hold-our-hands-and-spin-around-as-fast-as-we-can-glee' since I was a young child or a young woman first meeting people when I went to college. I didn't think anything like this would ever be possible in my elder years. This opportunity came from something larger and more gigantic than myself. It was the most amazing experience of serendipity and synchronicity I've ever had in my life."

--Paula Hill, Santa Cruz, CA

"I was delighted by the laughter in the group, hearing others and being open to the pain, struggles and joys of the other women. The feeling of community and being held by the group made me want to sigh, 'Ahhh!' I learned this week that I am part of the humanity we all share. I was in awe that strangers could become confidants in such a short time."

--Rebecca Arnesty, Aptos, CA
