Experience the freedom and joy of effortless writing.

Write, connect, heal, and grow
in a community of like-hearted women.

“Part of the magic of Susan’s writing circles comes from the ceremony and guided visualization she leads before we write.  From that centered place, I am able to release my inner critic, and my heart comes pouring out in words.”

Scout Tomyris, Santa Rosa, CA


Women's Writing Circle

 

Rare opening for a guest member in our Wednesday Morning Women’s Writing Circle in Occidental

We are looking for a part-time guest member to fill in during planned absences in this private, ongoing, weekly writing circle (Wednesdays, 10-12:30) at Susan’s writing cottage in Occidental. Each week includes smudging and drumming, guided meditation, writing and reading aloud, deep listening, and positive reflection. No experience necessary; just a desire to drop down deep and explore your life in ceremony with other women. The guest member may choose four available dates from the vacation schedule for $165 and will have the first option for a full-time seat when one becomes available.

Contact Susan for more information.
