Writing From the Body: Yoga & Writing Retreat
November 1-3, 2019
Gilchrist Retreat Center ~ Three Rivers, Michigan
Friday, November 1, 2019 through Sunday, November 3, 2019
“Imagination is evidence of the divine,” wrote poet and visionary William Blake more than 200 years ago. And yet we experience the world, imagine, and create through our very human bodies. In this retreat designed for artists and dreamers of every ilk, we will drop into the body and connect to the deepest parts of ourselves from which we all too often disassociate in our creative work. Through immersive yoga practices, including asana, guided breathing, and relaxation, coupled with writing exercises, we will unleash and explore the power that is our birthright, face our fears, generate new material, make resolutions, and discover the stories that emerge from and are written on the body. Between facilitated sessions participants will have time for solitude, reflection, and play in nature on the sacred grounds of beautiful Gilchrist.
The retreat begins in WindHill at 6:30 p.m. Friday and closes at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. Early bird registration is $225 before October 1, 2019, and $250 after that. Space is limited, and participants must register for the retreat with a $75 deposit before reserving a cabin at Gilchrist, with remaining cost of retreat due by November 1, 2019. Lodging fees and reservations are separate, and participants are encouraged to complete a registration form and submit payment early to secure a spot and secure a Gilchrist cabin.

Join Marin for this special weekend workshop on Yoga and Creativity on the sacred grounds of Gilchrist!
This retreat is designed for those who long to fulfill their creative potential. As innate artists and dreamers, we must tend to our bodies and spirits and discover the balance between rest, renewal, play, and creative challenge so that we may tap into and channel something larger than ourselves. This weekend retreat will offer opportunities for truly nurturing and restorative practices to get and keep the creative juices flowing. Offerings will include yoga, meditation, writing and reading, drawing, music and dance, self care, and time in nature connecting to earth and to self. Come explore what’s possible when you give yourself what you truly need, and leave rejuvenated, with tools to sustain a richly creative life.
