More about your time with Dorian:
Do you long for time out where these is space to be? ... Desire invigorating company and conversation? … Have ideas but aren’t sure how to write then down? Then this retreat is for you... time to breathe and be... to write, walk the beach… come alive…

What do writing, being and breath share in common? They all bring alive and expand the present moment. They invoke a conversation with ourselves and others. An exchange of energies. Writing is a skill drawn from attention, presence and openness – an organic process rather than a talent.

On this retreat in a safe space discover the writer inside you. We explore our innate creativity and imagination as we connect writing to mindfulness and bodyfulness. We write and meditate on the many changes and transformations as we journey down the river of our lives. We consider how creativity and imagination steady the boat and how writing helps us dip the oars into dark water so we may navigate the river safely.

The retreat also focuses on how to pay attention, be present in your writing and engage the reader as a creative partner. And source your bliss. Beginners are welcome. And funny thing is… you do not have to be a writer to enjoy this experience.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!
