"House of the Spirit" A Creative Writing Retreat

In times of upheaval, where do you go? To what and to whom do you turn?

Author and speaker Anais Nin says, “There is a new awareness that we have to equalize the inner and outer worlds, and for this we have to have what the Thai people call ‘the house of the spirit.’”

Join Beth Turner for a set aside time of reawakening and reestablishing an inner center of gravity. Who should consider attending? Anyone looking to pause and consider a personal inventory of emotions and beliefs, position or purpose in life, and the presence you carry within you. What can you expect? Reflective writing and meditating prompts, opportunities for journaling and creating, space for reflecting, sharing, and storytelling. This is an invitation to consider deeply many things, including: I am ___? The world is ___? Therefore ___? Your own hunger, vulnerability and honesty will be your greatest currency for this retreat.
