If the answers were yes, then this retreat is for you.

 

We invite you to join us for a transformative five-day experience this summer, immersing yourself in a heart-led writing retreat that seamlessly blends the art of creative expression with the healing journey. Nestled in the serene Portuguese countryside, this wellness retreat promises a rejuvenating escape for an intimate gathering of women.

 

Each day unfolds with engaging poetry writing workshops, delving into themes of healing, forgiveness, self-love, and self-compassion. These sessions are thoughtfully crafted to guide you in accessing and expressing your innermost voice, allowing you to write authentically from the space of your heart.

 

Our program extends beyond poetry, offering opportunities to refine your writing skills and participate in workshops focusing on story development.

 

 

 

Immerse yourself in group discussions centred around the themes of healing and renewal, fostering a supportive environment for shared writing experiences as well as moments of solitary reflection. The retreat provides a nurturing space to showcase your work in a warm and tender setting.

Beyond the writing aspect, the retreat integrates healing modalities to accompany you on your personal journey. Morning yoga sessions, soothing sound bath healing, daily meditation, and movement practices enrich your experience. Explore connection with the healing horses of Quinta Carvalhas, unwind in the Zen garden, and enjoy moments of serenity by the pool.

 (Additional healing treatments like Reiki, massage, horse therapy, and more are available for purchase.)

 

 Throughout the day, carve out moments for daily devotion and pauses to connect with the sacred, adding a spiritual dimension to your retreat experience.

 

 

All workshops aim to nurture your writing voice and boost your creative confidence in a pressure-free setting. 

 

The act of writing poetry can be a great way to practice self-care, too. Everyone has a story that has shaped them into who they are. Whether we feel confident in our poetry skills or not, writing those stories can help us understand ourselves.
