About us

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners.

Let no one keep you from your journey.

You are the only explorer.

Your heart, the unreadable compass.

Your soul, the shore of a promise

too great to be ignored.

This weekend retreat celebrates the publication of Mark Nepo’s new book of poetry, “The Way Under the Way,” which gathers 217 poems retrieved and shaped over the past 20 years. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, the New York Times bestselling author is committed to poetry as a way being and caring more than the manipulation of language. The central theme of Mark’s work is an ongoing inquiry into the inner space of the soul and the journey of being human.

This retreat will center on our connection to the depth of life, that place of true meeting that is always near, where we chance to discover our shared humanity and common thread of Spirit. Through poetry, story, journaling and dialogue, Mark will guide participants into conversation with their own gifts and their own wisdom.

Of the retreat, Mark says, “My hope is that our time together will support you in living, listening, and beholding each other. Whether you write or not, I offer that the medicine of poetry and expression is that through raw and honest reflection, we deepen our conversation with life. And so, the purpose of poetry and expression is to make life real, to remove everything that gets in the way, and to help us live. My hope is that through this time together, you will become more

intimate with your own nature and more engaged in your own journey.”

Please bring a journal.

Tuition is $250 plus accommodations.
