Transformational Writing + Yoga Retreat!

[Update: This retreat has been rescheduled for May 20th-22nd, 2016. Details here.]
I am over-the-moon excited to announce my first-ever writing and yoga retreat! Squam has been a catalyst for me in so many ways, and I’ve been dreaming about leading a writing retreat to help other people enjoy the same sort of life-changing experience. When I attended a yoga weekend at Bethel Farm in February and met Stephen Bethel, I knew this was the perfect place and the ideal teacher with whom to partner. Stephen is so open and loving and kind, and gives the juiciest dharma talks!

The First-Ever Comet Party Transformational Writing + Yoga Retreat

Thursday, September 10th through Sunday, September 13th, 2015
Bethel Farm, Hillsborough, New Hampshire

A transformative experience requires three simple factors: time in nature, a diversion from routine, and the intention to surprise yourself. If you’ve been feeling anxious about growing in a new direction, this is the ideal set up in which to work through your fears and become the person you know you’re meant to be. Through a magical combination of writing, yoga, and meditation in a safe and supportive environment, you’ll be able to delve deep into unprocessed emotions and ultimately create your own epiphany (or maybe more than one!)

We’ll begin each day with a Jivamukti yoga class taught by Stephen Bethel. Workshop sessions will include intuitive mind mapping, ego management, and using symbols and archetypes to reframe our challenges, all of which are flexibly designed to make skill and experience levels (happily) irrelevant. You can be someone who doesn’t write at all, or you can be an aspiring or published author. You can be an experienced yogi, or you can be making your way to the mat for the very first time. We’ll spend time outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, sweat out what no longer serves us in the pond-side sauna, and savor gorgeous vegan meals from the Bethel Farm kitchen.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
