Spirit Writer

The 4-Week Online Retreat

to Reconnect with

the Voice of Your Soul

What are you working on right now?

Is it a book, a blog, a song or poem, online course content, or another type of written content?

 

More to the point, do you have a fire burning inside to touch the heart of the world with your writing?

 

If so, then you probably know how frustrating it can be when you hit a patch of writer’s block, lose focus, and begin to doubt whether you will ever finish what you’ve set out to create.

 

The four-week Spirit Writer retreat can be the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for. It can be the “wind in your sails” that you’ve secretly wished for. 

 

Our brand new workshop is an opportunity to stop working so hard and find out what happens when you ask for divine guidance. 

 

It’s a time to rest, relax, and open to the extraordinary creative powers of the universe. 

  Please join us and our very specials guests to explore what happens when we ask for divine guidance both in our writing
and in other aspects of our work in the world

A Return to Love

A sacred conversation between us and you

 

[ A short blurb about us and our guest speakers.]

 

Spirit Writer is about receiving the missives from your higher power, the muses, and other energetic helpers, and letting those guide your writing.

It's also about discovering new depths of inspiration and joy in the writing process as you partner with spirit to bring full expression to your ideas, experience, and wisdom.

The Yin-Yang Nature of Writing

The Spirit Writer retreat is born out of our love of the divine mystery that we all find ourselves miraculously a part of. Recognizing that the best work we do happens when we ask spirit to guide us, we were suddenly ablaze with a desire to bring this online event to fruition. 

 

The Spirit Writer experience illuminates the yin/yang nature of writing. Any creative path or endeavor is a marriage of doing and being. In our work to support writers to fulfill their goals and dreams, our Book Incubator is our active “yang” course of action, and Spirit Writer is the open and receptive “yin.”     

 

There are times to take outward action when writing—to roll up our sleeves and get to it. There are times to lean into logic and reason; to think in terms of strategy, structure, and organization. (We love that part, too.)

 

Just as importantly, there are times to be still. To press pause on the “doing” and open to the mystery underlying all things—open to the source of our creativity, passion, and desire to share what we have learned for the benefit of others.

 

In this resplendent stillness, we can ask for guidance in any way that feels most meaningful and real to us. 

 

Maybe this is a request you have made countless times in your life, and now you’re ready to ask more fervently in your quest to accomplish your writing dreams.

 

You might call on divine guidance, inner guidance, spiritual direction, or support by another name. And whatever the case may be, your “call” will not be missed by spirit!

 

The Spirit Writer online retreat is a container for welcoming and deepening this creative conversation—the one between you and spirit. 

 

During these four weeks, inspiration will lead the way. Individually and collectively, we will invite spirit to breathe more life into our writing and to move us toward the shore of completion while fully enjoying the amazing adventure along the way.

We're going to have an amazing time together.

ILLUMINATION FROM US

We've created 10 gorgeous worksheets that are far more than a nice complement to the videos. In many instances, they expand on the information we share on video. These PDF  guides are essential for creating the structure that will put you quickly and powerfully in action. Use them online or print them out.

"Tell me about the online retreat format!"

The retreat includes a total of 8 live gatherings, 4 of which are optional.  Here’s the breakdown:

The heart of the retreat. 4 Spirit Writer Circles—Meeting on Zoom on four consecutive Wednesdays from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Pacific time. [Add the dates here]

Rise and shine . . . to listen to the whispers. 4 early morning guided meditation gatherings on Zoom: optional. If you would like a boost to your Spirit Writer experience, you can join us from 5:00-5:20 AM Pacific time. This is twenty minutes to gather in the vibrant stillness of the early morning (especially for those in the US Pacific, Mountain, and Central time zones) and set the stage for receiving inspiration, signs, signals, clarity, energy, creative downloads, or anything else that will support your writing.

 


Your ultra-inspired writing community. A private forum for sharing your writings, downloads, inspirations, and experience with the whole community. [Kris, should we try Facebook again? I think it’ll be easier for people to access than the forum that Wix offers—fewer steps!]
