Write and explore your creativity at this 10 day retreat for women writers in Bar Harbor, home of Acadia National Park. Our days together flow in magical rhythm that seem to rise up from this soulful land, the rocks, the sea and the air. Here, with all your needs wonderfully cared for, you will experience at a visceral level what Maria Rainer Rilke, an exquisite observer of the creative life, meant when he wrote, "And then the knowledge comes to me that I have space within me for a second, timeless, larger life."
Through our writing, our circle work, the sharing of meals, which are culinary delights, and our relationships with each other, we begin to slough off our outer world self and enter the timeless space within.
This writers retreat is held at Rising Sun Cottage, my house on the rocks high above Frenchman's Bay. My husband and I designed the house (built in 2013) to welcome the sea and the land into the creative and nourishing inner space. All rooms have views of the ocean that crashes on the granite rocks below the house.
The retreat is designed so that all your needs are met and you are free to explore your inner self and the depths of your writing and creativity journey. You will return from the retreat with an expansive space within for your writing and all the creative work you love.
We meet in sessions twice a day and sometimes in the evenings. There are three hours free in the afternoons and time to explore as a group Acadia National Park. The shore is a two minute walk from the house and there are several lovely trails accessible from Rising Sun Cottage.
Our meeting room is spacious and our meals are cooked and served by a private chef.
