A relaxing, supportive, online mini-retreat for finding greater ease in your life!

To be of greatest service at a time when there are so many concerns about finances, this mini-retreat is available on a pay-what-you wish basis. Select a general ticket if the full fee is within your means. If it’s not, just pick a Pay What You Wish ticket when registering, and set your own fee!

  • Are you feeling uncertain or apprehensive as you take in the news about the coronavirus?
  • Is the pace of life so busy that you can’t make time for yourself?
  • Do you wish you had something different and creative to look forward to?
  • Do you long for a retreat —  if only you had the time or money?
  • Are you feeling off balance due to cycles of rapidly changing and intense emotion?
  • Do you need a flexibly priced opportunity for self-care?

If you answered “yes” to just one of these questions, you should say “yes” to this mini-retreat! Here’s why:

  • It promotes healing and resilience
  • It takes just bit more than two hours
  • It’s very affordable
  • It’s fun and insightful

No prior writing experience needed! Your writing remains private.


If the full fee is within your means, select a general ticket when registering. If your finances have taken a hit from the coronavirus pandemic, simply choose a “Pay What You Wish” ticket when registering, and set your own fee. I don’t want cost to stop you from attending!

One of the best ways I’ve found to get to the heart of a troubling matter is to write. What works for me, and as research shows, works for so many, is  a writing approach that is both structured and flexible. Having a guide and group of supportive others deepens the experience.

 This High-Value Online Mini-Retreat Gives You:

I’m so glad I attended the last mini-retreat. It was fun, the time flew by, and I got so much out of it.

The Six Progressive Forms of Writing in Transform Your Health: Write to Heal

The experience was such a good one. My creativity was sparked in a big way!

~ Participant, Transform Your Health: Write to Heal

  • The Pennebaker Paradigm: Helps you move forward positively from a past, private emotional upheaval or crisis.
  • Transactional writing: Allows you to take care of unfinished business, conveying your feelings, expectations and intentions for yourself and others.
  • Poetic writing: Uses narrative structure and metaphor to tell your story.
  • Affirmative writing: Focuses awareness on your best qualities, and on how you want to live your life in the future.
  • Legacy writing: Enables you to write for others about your values, what you most want to be known for, your major life lessons, turning points and epiphanies.
  • Mindful writing: Brings your focus to the present, strengthening six aspects of mindfulness: awareness, attention, acceptance, affection, appreciation, and affirmation.

Over three decades of research demonstrate the power of expressive writing to positively impact emotional, social, behavioral and physical well-being. Its greatest appeal is that it is a method with strong scientific evidence behind it.
