Writing Your Sacred Self Retreat January 16, 2016

Join me on January 16, 2016 from 9AM to 5PM in Unity of Bloomington’s beautiful chapel to write your sacred self!

Writing Your Sacred Self (3)

During this full day writing retreat, you will enjoy meditative practices coupled with writing prompts to enter a space of deep self reflection. Once there, you will consider what wants to be released and record it on the page. You will have the choice to share your work and will create an action plan for continuing (or ending) the stories you’ve engaged. There will be a one hour break for lunch. You are invited to bring a pillow and blanket(s) for creating a writing “nest” as well as your preferred writing tools. We will ground ourselves before leaving.

This retreat will take place in the beautiful Unity of Bloomington chapel. Unity is a an all-inclusive spiritual center that has hosted many of my classes. No spiritual or religious affiliation is required to attend. Unity is a safe space which makes it the perfect location for you to explore your sacred self. All are warmly welcome and everyone receives a gift. No writing experience necessary. Cost: $120. Register prior to Jan. 1 to receive a $20 discount. Maximum 25 participants.

Sign up today! If you have any questions, please contact me by emailing shawna.ainslie@gmail.com.

I look forward to writing with you and honoring your sacred self both on and off the page.
