Winter Writing Retreat 2024 Image
We are spinners and weavers; we are the ones who spin the threads and weave them into meaning and pattern. ~Adapted from Sharon Blackie
We each have our own unique story to tell. Our bodies hold the stories from our lives as well as the stories from our ancestors. Our bodies remember. They know a history we cannot always name. They hold what is good and what causes pain. They archive our experiences of our todays, our presents, and futures--this is what our bodies hold and makes our bodies whole.
Let's gently explore through our writing what has influenced us. Let's ask ourselves some of the brave questions. Our world needs each of our voices, our truths, our stories. A retreat can offer space and time for you to strengthen your writing. Use the slower pace of this winter retreat as a time to take care of your body.
We will have writing time, sharing time, and large group time. We will also have the luxury of unscheduled time each day.
Reacquaint yourself with the gifts of living in WWf(a)C community. Share your writing in nonjudgmental space, a space that frees encouragement and acceptance. Experience the shared community that builds as we listen to the common threads in our stories.
