Do you love to write but don’t find the time for it? Have you started a memoir and find it is more about the facts of your life and less about the soul of your life, the things that really matter? Join the instructor on a journey into writing practice. We will leave the inner critic at the door and keep our hands moving across the pages of our notebooks. Our weekend together will include teaching, reading, small group and individual work, and time to quiet the mind with periods of silence and meditation. In this noisy world of ours, we will listen to the inner voice and trust what comes. You will take away from this retreat methods on how to continue your writing practice long after the weekend is over. All are welcome, no experience necessary.


Barbara O’Neil, MEd is a life-long teacher and writer. She leads writing groups for students in the Boston area and a yearly writing retreat in Taos, New Mexico.
