The retreat is flexible. If you prefer to spend more time relaxing, you won’t be pressured. The guiding philosophy is to always be either completely productive or completely relaxed. Both are important facets to living a fulfilled life.

(All activities listed are included in program price)

Many participants come primarily for creative writing, and all come to have some dedicated time for themselves, to travel and retreat to an empowering, relaxed setting.

In many cases, participants find themselves delving into new creative activities.


Each day begins with breathwork, followed by an optionally silent breakfast. The early morning is a time for quiet self-reflection and gratitude.

After breakfast, Stephen leads a brief discussion on an aspect of writing. The remainder of the morning is dedicated time to write.


There is a delicious lunch, followed by a brief self-development writing exercise and some free time to explore the estate, relax, or work on your creative projects.


Dinner is glorious, delicious, family-style and healthy. After dinner, we meet in a circle to share and critique each other’s work. After critique, before bed, there is time to read, reflect, and relax.
