Wildflower bush in front of a purple wall.

This is a weekend for folks who want to escape the city, snip the ties on their responsibilities and create some beautiful, focused time to write. We’ll gather at a barrier-free, 600-acre property in the deep woods — eight participants and two facilitators — and we’ll write. In silence and in laughter, in circles and all alone, we’ll find words and sentences to move our stories out into the world.

Participants may have projects on the go, or may simply arrive with big open hearts and the desire to create.

Writing Retreats in Mexico

There are times in our lives when we crave new sights and sounds. Fresh sources of inspiration. Unexpected encounters. Moments of awe and delight. We long for the kinds of friendships that can only emerge from shared interests. We dream of an altered perspective of self, based on the absorption of new experiences, skills and ideas.

If this sounds familiar, and you love to write, then join us for a special 7-day retreat experience.

Writing Retreats in Costa Rica

We all crave inspiration, once in a while; the time to dream, the space to think, the energy to pour into a creative project. We need to recharge, to reassert belief in ourselves and to re-imagine how we see ourselves. We need to laugh, to learn new skills, to be alone when we choose to, to be part of a community when the mood takes us and to reconnect with the natural world. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect place to do all this than in our beautiful Costa Rica!
