Autumn in Tuscany 2015: A Writing Retreat for the Senses


Autumn in Tuscany

September 6 – September 12, 2015


WP_20140915_006(1)Per popular request, we’ve added a day and a night this year!

Join us for seven days and six nights of writing and nurturing our creative selves in a farmhouse nestled in the Chianti region of Italy. Through daily morning yoga, workshops, writing prompts and using all that the countryside has to offer, this retreat is guaranteed to transform your writing and your connection to your senses. 


Our writing workshops will weave the work of writing together with our senses. Using prompts, exercises and supportive guidance you’ll be invited to awaken the connection between your life experience, your senses and your deepest writer self. You’ll be asked to bring something with you to share and to share what you are working on while you’re there. There will be time for individual consultation and for group readings.  All genres and writing levels are welcome.rdn - wow yoga


Each day begins with an optional morning yoga practice, which will bring us, literally, to our senses. In practices tailored to each group’s participants – beginners are welcome! – we enter our bodies with attention, breath, and movement, with the particular intention of nurturing creative expression.


Yoga is followed by a silent buffet breakfast outdoors on the veranda, offering a chance to quietly commune and soak up the stunning views.
