Women Writing Through Transition at Casari Ranch

Saturday, May 13, 2017
9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Casari Ranch, Point Arena, CA











Relationships. Money. Work. Health. Family. It seems things are always in flux.

As living beings, we are always in some stage of change or transition. Sudden or major changes can have a deep and profound effect on our lives, while other transitions happen slowly over time. Change can be uncomfortable, challenging, and sometimes even unwelcome. But we need look no further than the natural world to know that change is both inevitable and essential as we move through the stages of our lives.

Casari Ranch is the perfect place to see our changing lives reflected in nature.

The cycles of nature teach us everything we need to know about moving through change with an open heart. Write and share in community with other women as we explore our changing lives at the beautiful and inspiring Casari Ranch in Northern California.

Casari Ranch is a 532-acre agricultural preserve on the Mendocino Coast, where abundant wildlife, ocean views, magical meadows, and fragrant forests are mingled with sheep, horses, and gardens. The ranch is located near Point Arena in coastal Mendocino County, about 30 minutes north of The Sea Ranch/Gualala.

Do you long for connection with other women going through similar transitions? Join us as we write to explore our changing lives.

At this 1-day retreat, you’ll:

• Learn simple techniques for effortless writing.
• Use meditation and nature-based practices to help access the deeper inner life.
• Dive deep into your writing to explore the transitions and changes in your life.
• Share your stories (as you wish) in a safe, supportive circle of women.
• Receive the gift of deep listening as Susan mirrors and reflects your stories.
• Leave with greater self-acceptance and deeper compassion for how you experience change.
