Writing and Yoga Retreat in Scotland
May 26 – June 2, 2017
If you’ve ever wanted to experience island life in Scotland, please join us for a week of writing and yoga on the Isle of Cumbrae. This is one of my favorite spots on earth, where the pace of life is slow, and filled with wonder. I will always remember a woman who attended this same retreat years ago, who had dreamed of being a writer but had not dared to try until she joined us. One evening after all the writers had listened to her read, and told her what they loved about her writing, she said, “I’ve been waiting for this all of my life.” If you have been waiting, join us. Go to Patchwork Farm to read the full description.
