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 lay-offs, cutbacks and financial losses, I’m offering this mini-retreat on a pay-what-you wish basis. Just pick the Pay What You Wish ticket on the registration site!

  • 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 long for a retreat —  if only you had the needed time or money?
  • Are you intrigued by the idea of writing to calm and center yourself?
  • 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 three hours
  • It’s very affordable
  • It’s fun and insightful

No prior writing experience needed! Your writing remains private.


If your finances have taken a hit from the coronavirus pandemic, choose a”Pay What You Wish” ticket after clicking the Tickets link on the registration site. I don’t want cost to stop you from attending!

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

 This High-Value Online Mini-Retreat Gives You:

Love this workshop, it’s so helpful to pause and take care of myself.

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.
