This writing workshop invites you to explore nature as healer, nature as delight, and nature as companion. Let the surroundings of Mariandale be your inspiration to paint words into a poetic rhythm of lyrical language. During the workshop, we’ll have writing prompts to explore the creative process as a spiritual path where you’ll be able to connect with your inner wisdom and the sacredness of solitude.
