Theme: The Power of Place
Online via Zoom: 8am-4 pm PT

Inspire your imagination and unleash your stories in an immersive day of creative writing, meditation, mindful movement, and embodied energy practices.

Whether remembered or dreamed up, our stories are inseparable from the places where they unfold, whether that’s a yoga ashram in Mumbai, a bar in New Orleans, a chateau in the sixteenth century, or a spaceship traversing the Andromeda galaxy. Writing about places can conjure memories, jump-start visions, and ground our tales in details that help others inhabit them.
