OUTDOOR WRITING RETREAT

OUTDOOR WRITING RETREAT JULY 29

This retreat began with a brief trail orientation and guided hike in the Palisades Interstate Park. It also helped guests get out of their comfort zone and back in touch with the healing power of nature. Then, guests got to replenish with a healthy lunch and beverages followed by a cool down and a short meditation to get themselves ready for writing workshops. Cindy, of Pen to Paper Retreats, led this workshop and shared her personal writing ritual complete with music, incense, and candles.
