Enhance Your Creativity on A Greek Island

Writer’s Retreat June 7-13, 2020

 

Greece is the birthplace of some of the most enduring ideas and writings on Earth. Just imagine soaking up the culture and creativity in the air there. How would time spent gazing at the blue of the Aegean Sea, tasting local olives, feta, and cuisines, and immersing yourself in local culture widen your ability to paint with words?

 

Come retreat with me to the beautiful island of Skianthos Greece, where Mama Mia was filmed. This retreat will open your wellspring of ideas, help you find colorful stories in everyday experiences, and re-ignite your passion for your writing.

Logistics:

We’ll meet at a hotel near the Athens Airport on Sunday, June 7 where we’ll rest, relax, and enjoy a festive welcome dinner.
On Monday, June 8, we’ll travel to the seaport where we’ll board a ferry for the ocean journey to the island, crossing bright blue waters and leaving the every-day hassles of the world behind.
We’ll journey to a sumptuous private home on Skianthos, home of the 7th best beach in the World, complete with an infinity pool, terraces, and bedrooms with king sized beds and high-end linens. This home is owned by a British interior designer, so you’ll be surrounded by comfort and beauty at every moment.
This house will be our nest for 5 nights. During our time on the island, we’ll take daily exploration trips, have group time to work on creativity and dreaming new visions of your future writing, and have plenty of time for relaxing and individual writing.
The retreat will conclude on Saturday, June 13 where we’ll part at the airport after riding the ferry back to the mainland. You’ll be free to continue on in your travels of Greece or head home.

Co-Ed/Partnering Options

Because this retreat will focus on creativity, you are welcome to bring your spouse, partner, adult child or share a room with another writer if you wish. Or, come solo, knowing that you’ll be wrapped in a warm community of people who understand what you are trying to accomplish and will offer their support. Lifelong friendships are often formed at my retreats, so if you are looking for more like-minded friends, you’ll be in the right place!

All-Inclusive and Exclusive

Decision fatigue is a psychological state when your brain gets tired from having to make so myriad decisions and plans, leaving little energy for creation. To spare you from the decision fatigue of international travel, including currency conversion, this is an all-inclusive retreat. You’ll only need cash for any personal shopping that you’d like. All meals, transportation, and excursions will be paid for you. Your brain will be free to notice, make connections, and collect fresh ideas.
There are just 4 rooms available for this retreat, ensuring that you’ll have plenty of access to individual coaching with me as well as time for your voice to be heard during our writing activities.
