This year’s writing retreat in Italy was among the best we’ve ever had. A great group assembled from the U.S., Australia, and Canada for work-filled week at a 17th century villa near Lucca, complete with an olive grove, vineyard, salt-water pool, and plenty of open space to wander around the stunning grounds. In the afternoons, we took the group on local excursions to a private castle in a Medieval village, the marble caves at Carrara (whence sprang Michelangelo’s David), and dinner on sea in Viarregio. Thanks so much to everyone who came.
Happy Summer! Here’s a link to June’s newsletter, “Sail Away To Safe Harbor.” Mark Twain wrote, “Sail away from safe harbor. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Summer is the time to break free, take risks, and enjoy ourselves, and in this month’s edition of the newsletter you’ll find a number of offerings that can help you do just that. Hope to see you. https://conta.cc/2NvlBT8.
Join me for Writing Your Future Story: A Six-Week Course in Vision and Imagination from July 1 – August 11. Every life is a work of the imagination. We create our own futures, imagine ourselves forward in time, through the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, who we’re not, what is possible, and what can never be.
In this imaginative course on self-reinvention, you will have the opportunity to explore new story lines for the year ahead, including fresh possibilities, surprising shifts, and novel ways of expanding — and improving, your future life. More info and registration.
An inspirational investigation of the self through expressive writing, guiding you along the path of awakening through radical truth-telling and self-inquiry. More information.
