The Writer's Retreat of Your Dreams
The Writer's Retreat of Your Dreams slideshow logo
“Close your eyes. Imagine getting to spend a week on a mythological island, populated only by funny, creative, sensitive people of all ages and backgrounds. Imagine three delicious, healthy, mouth-watering meals appearing magically each day. Imagine nothing to do except write, dream, nap, stroll along oceanfront cliffs, and let your creativity flow. Now open your eyes. You are at Laura Davis’ annual Commonweal writing workshop.”

–Kim Tyler, Santa Cruz

I'd like to invite you to the 10th annual Writer’s Journey Retreat at the incomparable Commonweal Retreat Center in Bolinas in Northern California. I don’t know if I can find the words to tell you how powerful, inspiring and transformative these summer retreats have been.

The retreat will begin with arrival on Wednesday, July 15th, 2015 and will conclude on Tuesday, July 21st after lunch.

Many of us hold a deep dream of wanting to write. We want to write so we can understand ourselves more deeply and so that we can be seen. We sense that there are stories living inside of us that need to be told, but in our busy lives, we have not been able to create the time, space or circumstances in which to do so.

The Writer’s Journey Retreat will give you that time. In our safe, supportive circle, you will find the permission, encouragement, and skills you need to explore the voices in your heart and tell the truth about your life.
