Welcome all women who love to write! This is the third year for this very popular retreat. Ideal for newcomers and veterans alike, our theme in 2014 is "The Heart's Longing." We'll focus on the human desire for sacred knowledge, having an intimate relationship with the Divine, and how journal writing can support that process.
