Writing from the Body
June 15–18, 2023
What word, what act, was it we thought did not matter?
Drala Mountain Center is a perfect place for writing, with its hidden places, big views, and quiet atmosphere. The focus of the weekend is to support the practice of writing by listening to your memory body, present moments, and the land. You’ll practice gentle Yoga, playful movement, and writing prompts that inspire your imagination and creative heart. Opening your senses, you’ll meditate and walk outside. You’ll write outside too, searching for the perfect writing nooks on the land. You’ll read and share poems and prose, lists and notes, and be read to. You’ll return from the weekend enthusiastic to include a writing and moving practice in your day to day living.
The published authors we’ll read will be primarily women, people of color, as well as those who identify as LGBTQI+.
The nature of this retreat encourages simple affirmative feedback and no critiques.
