Writers Retreat

About us

This four-day workshop is a writer’s dream. Two passionate and professional writers will each be facilitating a workshop to coach and train a small group of individuals on the tranquil and rejuvenating shores of Kootenay Lake. It is a rare opportunity to have the collective experience of writers and industry professionals like Ellen Chauvet and Kevin Mosley at the same time in the same place, let alone for 3 days. So whether it is fiction, nonfiction or screenwriting that is your calling you could not be in better hands.

Ellen’s writing experience and intuitive coaching style are uniquely paired during this workshop. While Ellen stands alongside your writing and will be sharing several tools to support your progress, it is her world-class coaching experience that will guide you to a place where your writing will flow and your relationship to your craft will be at ease.

Kevin’s lifelong screenwriting experience and expertise in navigating the film world will support you in not only completing a screenplay but the “how to” in getting your movie made.

This 4-day workshop will be split into two distinct groups, a fiction oriented group lead by Ellen and screenwriting group lead by Kevin. All participants have the opportunity receive personal coaching with Ellen. Participants will be required to note which group they are in prior to enrollment.

So You Wanna Write a Book

Do you have a story that’s itching to be written? Or do you have a topic that you’re passionate about and have often had the thought, “I should write a book/I wanna write a book”? Whether you’re a fiction or a non-fiction “wanna be”, often the voice in our head goes something like this: “I can’t” “Nobody would want to read it” “I’m not good enough to write a book” “What if nobody likes it” – these thoughts are the barriers that stop us from fulfilling on a dream. Consider the
possibility that you are an author and you have barriers to the full expression and
fulfillment of that commitment.

In this workshop we will distinguish what “stops” you and others in realizing a dream you may have had since childhood. Once distinguished, we will be in action to cause breakthroughs in those areas leaving you free to create and express your passion.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
