Memoir Writing Course and Retreat

       “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou

Many people dream about writing  – from writing poetry, short stories, to novels, memoirs, or even having a successful blog.  Writers come from all walks of life rich in experience and perspective – with a powerful story to tell and a deeper message to share with others.

Writing a book or a blog is not complicated. Thinking about writing, avoiding writing, fearing writing, resisting writing — that’s where things get tangled up. And God knows, I have certainly experienced it all! I have had an on-again, off-again relationship with my book. I've been through a deeply vulnerable and cathartic writing process and am so excited to now positioned for publishing (finally!). As such, have a plethora of experience and a unique approach to share with you so you can finally take your writing from dream to reality. And what better way is there than to work with an experienced mentor who can help to nourish your writing, support you to bust past self-imposed barriers, and discover the writer within with some spiritual woo along the way.

This writing program is perfect for participants who are full of fear, have zero experience or have no idea where to start. Its for seasoned writers who keep putting their writing off; who feel blocked or are looking to up-level their skills.

  • A sense of your writing voice and your unique gifts as a writer.
  • New friends who are on the same path.
  • A feeling of creative playfulness and possibility.
  • Creative courage.
  • Feeling aligned with your purpose as a writer


I won’t tell you what write or edit your writing. I will however inspire and motivate you, take you through blocks, obstacles, and excuses, challenge you out of your comfort zone, and love you through the whole process.

I hope you will choose to join me!

3-Month Online Writing Reflection

Getting you set up for success in writing

Writing a memoir is confronting. Let's not pretend it's easy. Remembering your experiences, both positive and negative, comes with a boatload of uncomfortable emotions as we look at the parts of ourselves that have hidden away while we gain a better understanding of how we became who we are today.


From writing ideas, teachings, and thought-provoking prompts and questions to inspire you.

This no-pressure course will help you to begin to tell your story -  whether you love deep emotional contemplation, want to express your comedic shenanigans, or wish to leave a legacy,  it all begins with your words.



3-Day Writing Retreat

A time for connection, attention, deep listening and writing.

Our agenda offers a beautiful balance of learning, personal reflection, group activities, meditation, and of course, with time to read and write and have fun too.

We will laugh a lot, and we will also go deep; there will be Kleenex and cookies!

  •      November 10, 11 & 12, 2023

Located near the beautiful Canadian Rockies, in Alberta, Canada, our retreat location offers the perfect backdrop to indulge in your writing.  A luxurious estate, your a home away from home, your accommodation is included with a private bedroom and bathroom for your comfort.

Enjoy continental breakfast, and lunch served daily. Dinner option is available at a minimal fee for those who prefer to dine in!


6-Months Online Writing Circles

The Writer's Nook, where our group rally's together

Spend time more time with those who share the belief in the power of stories, the desire to move past the resistance that arises, and who are committed to writing too. We will write, shift, laugh, grow and continue to evolve the writer from within.

Writing retreats are wonderful! But once you get back home - your family, the dog and your job - can make it challenging to dedicate any time to your writing.  That's where our monthly circle comes in!
