Bali Mountain Retreat – January 17-23, 2020
7 day retreat at a very special eco-resort near the slopes of Mount Batukaru
This retreat is about productivity. It’s also very much about making a return to a mode of writing that feels restorative and inspired. Prepare to bask in the pristine environment of Bali — high away from the bustle of cities and conventional tourism.
At Writing Immersion retreats, everything is optional, but there will be lots of craft talks on writing and plenty of opportunities to share and get feedback.
Optional extras include rainforest, rice paddy, and temple day hikes/tours.
Day 1: Introduction, Exploration, Grounding – an introduction to the retreat’s core essentials and an opportunity to really arrive at the retreat.
Day 2: Gratitude, Fundamentals and Experimentation — several craft talks and exercises and an invitation to explore new modalities.
Day 3: Fun & Games / Expeditions — a time to schedule optional day trips and/or solo time. One-on-one writing guidance is also available.
Day 4: Deep Dive – Writing Marathon 1 — the group focus is on writing continually for solid stretches of time. Tools and strategies for making this possible.
Day 5: Processing and Integration — talks on revision, reordering, pacing, structure, etc.
Day 6: Deep Dive – Writing Marathon 2 — renewed aspiration to make the most of the trip. A deep plunge into the flow state.
Day 7: Equanimity, Departure — saying our farewells to each other.
