This is the view from the top of our very own waterfall (well it’s not really ours, it belongs to the the Yugambeh people of the land, we just get to admire it for a weekend) situated just a short walk from our cosy nun rooms on retreat at the Theosophical Society Education and Retreat Centre in Springbrook in the beautiful rainforest of the Gold Coast hinterland.
I love this retreat centre for its calming peaceful energy and the blessing of the beautiful women seekers who grace the walls in the dining hall.
This retreat is specially designed to help you write that memoir or life story and is beneficial for anyone wanting to get some of their stories out of their heads and onto the page. The workshops include lots of writing activities with prompts for writing from life, as well as helpful advice and methods to begin structuring your memoir. Life is huge! How do we organise it to make it a compelling read for others?
Let me show you how.
Come along and join the fun of retreat. Prices include two gentle yoga sessions, four writing workshops covering all aspects of writing from life, all meals and cosy single accomodation with bathrooms shared between two women. ONLY $480 for the whole weekend!
Writing can be a lonely business but it needn’t be. Connecting with other writers on the same adventure is one of the greatest joys of the writing life. Treat yourself to some time out of the usual busyness and demands of life. Be inspired by fun creative workshops, relax with some gentle yoga and connect with like minded women in a tranquil natural environment.
Put yourself at the top of your TO DO list for once. Refill your tank and renew your love of writing and life.
Is your creative spirit crying out for a little TLC? Always wanted to write but don’t know where to start? Need to reboot your writing mojo and be inspired to tackle that project you’ve been thinking about forever? Come along and regain your love of writing and life at the next Relax and Write Retreat among the beautiful big trees.
