Nature Writing Retreat

Come enjoy the beauty and sacredness of Knowles and reconnect with nature. This workshop will offer a balance of appreciation and contemplation as we explore the ways nature and spirituality are intricately linked. Participants will be led in short writing exercises as well as read from a variety of short nature essays that will explore our relationship with nature. Attendees will be led on a walk through the surrounding landscape while honing their mindful observation skills. No writing experience necessary. Elizabeth’s nature writing has been published in a variety of regional magazines and literary journals.

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”  – Albert Einstein

“In the woods is perpetual youth. In the woods we return to faith and reason.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“All contemplative acts, silences, poems, honor the world this way. Brought together by the eye of love, a milkweed pod, a twig, allow us to see how things have been all along. A feast of being.”
Mary Rose O’Reilley
