About This Event

Overview

Join YA author AC Gaughen for a madcap retreat that will jump-start new ideas, unlock your creativity, and leave you refreshed and inspired to write!

Are you looking for an exciting new twist, new character, or new story idea to help reinvigorate your writing? Is it time to fill up your creative well and have fun, be playful, and be inspired? Trying to finally nail the NaNoWrimo challenge?

This writing retreat will focus on idea generation. You’ll attend workshops in the mornings that leverage the psychology of creativity to unlock new ideas and challenge you in fun, low-risk ways. Use the afternoons to curate, keeping the ideas you like, writing further, and saving remaining ideas for future projects. There are no bad ideas – just ones that haven’t been pushed far enough to fly!

Why Retreat?

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

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth
 

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.
