What exactly is a Yogic Writing Retreat?

Yogic Writing is a process that combines yoga, meditation, and juicy writing prompts to help you find and write your life stories. This full day retreat will be a journey from your mind through your body to the page. Join us in person or online via Zoom.

All you need is a blank notebook and an open mind. You can also bring whatever writing project you’ve been circling around for some time and need to dig in and complete. This is your time to explore and WRITE… here and now!

No yoga, meditation, or writing experience necessary! 

“Writing is the only thing that when I do it,
I don’t feel I should be doing something else.”

~ Gloria Steinem

What do I get out of Write Here Write Now?

You’ll be introduced to a new practice called Yogic Writing! Amy and I will lead you through 3 different practices including gentle movement, meditation, and pranayama (breath practice) that can help you move your writing from your mind through your body to the page. All practices are optional. 

You’ll get some structured writing time, divided up into manageable chunks. 

You’ll get the emotional support that you need throughout the day so you don’t feel isolated and lonely.

You’ll have a community of people writing with you- in person or virtual.

You’ll get the opportunity to share your work for feedback and support.

Most importantly, you’ll get some writing done and feel good about yourself!

How does an online retreat actually work?

To be honest, I never thought I could recreate my Yogic Writing retreat to be an online offering. But then, when covid forced us all to look at experiences through a different lens, I thought I would give it a try. 

And guess what… it wasn’t nearly as weird as I thought it would be!  I attended a few online writing retreats myself, and then began to pivot all my in-person writing programs and retreats into virtual experiences, and they have been working really well!  And the beauty is I’ve been able to include people from all over the country into my virtual living room! 

Here’s what I realized: you can recreate much of the retreat experience with some technological wizardry and an open mind.  All you really need is some structure, time, and community support. 

I’ve created Write Here Write Now online retreat to give you all three in a virtual format.

I want this! Sign me up!

About the Venue

Retreats are made even better when the place you are retreating gives you as much pleasure as the retreat itself. 11 Constitution Street, a three story gem of a home built in 1866 is located in the heart of historic Bristol, Rhode Island.  A short thirty minutes from the T.F Green Airport, or Providence Train Station, 13 miles to Newport, RI, 65 miles to Boston, and four hour train ride from NYC, this little peninsula situated in Narragansett Bay is a place with immense history.

This retreat space is made for writers. With a typewriter collection ready for typing on the first floor along with a shop of books, notebooks, teas and a variety of delights, 11 Constitution Street will become a place that will bring out the best in your writing.

The second floor is where the magic begins with a full space for gathering writers to do what we love to do – WRITE. With cozy sitting areas in every nook and cranny, hardwood floors and art covering the walls, there are many private places you will be able to work your craft. There is an outdoor writing studio overlooking the back gardens, and multiple separate writing spaces throughout the garden. A back deck overlooks the garden with a small gas outdoor fireplace to keep you toasty. You can also make yourself comfortable on the front porch with views of the harbor.

The only items you need to bring is what you want to write with, a yoga mat (if you have one) and if the weather is chilly (likely in November), a pair of slippers and a cozy sweater.
