With Jacqui Rowley

July 19 - 21, 2024

Writing as a Spiritual Practice

With Sallie Tisdale

May 30 - June 1, 2025
When we use writing as a spiritual practice, we realize that creative work and spiritual orientation feed each other. We also find the courage and freedom to express ourselves from the heart. This curriculum has been taught as a live workshop and an online class through Tricycle Online Courses. This weekend is designed for both beginning and working writers, and as a creative expression for everyone.

“A beautiful and serene retreat center. The setting is breath-taking. The food is delicious and the accommodations are clean, comfortable and exquisitely designed. A wonderful getaway to truly relax and escape from it all.”
