Barbara O’Neil, MEd

Memoir: Freeing the Writer Within Instructor

July 15-17, 2022

A Writing Retreat

About the Program

Do you love to write but don’t find the time for it? Have you started a memoir and find it more about the facts of your life and less about the soul of your life, the things that really matter? Join us on a journey into writing practice as we leave the inner critic at the door and keep our hands moving across the pages of our notebooks. This program includes 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. Take away methods on how to continue your writing practice long after this retreat. All are welcome, no experience necessary.
