A Fun & Profound One-Day Writing Retreat
Do you think you can’t write? Well, you can!
Do you think your negative beliefs and attitudes toward writing and other things can’t change in a few hours? Yes, they can!
Do you think life affirming transformation can’t happen in a day? Yes, it can!
Come, let me show you how to come home to your heart through the joy of writing.
The only way to make this awesome workshop any better would be to make it into a two-day pajama party. I just want to keep going and going and going! Rachel Baum
Writing has the power to stop time, cut through the extraneous and take us home to our heart. This absolutely fun and deepening sense of self – day of discovery – will engage you and possibly surprise you by eliciting prose, poetry, song lyrics or simply stream of conscious writing that in a word or two simply delights you! You will learn the fundamentals of moving past the head and into the heart of writing.
What does it mean to ‘write yourself home?’ It is the place inside of us where creativity and healing reside. It is the place that when we tap into it, something beautiful is spoken and finds its way from our heart to the page and in doing so, unblocks our resistance and unlocks our voice – the voice that has been silent too long.
You will be led gently into story and into the soul’s inner landscape where clarity, creativity, passion, originality and truth are revealed. With encouragement, safety and the freedom to jump in, you will open to the joy of where writing can take you.
Beyond the writing itself, you will have lots of opportunity to share your writing, your thoughts, fears and break-throughs – to be fully seen and heard. As well, you will experience the joy of holding sacred space for the others. . There is plenty of levity throughout the day as well as dancing and movement exercises to keep the energy flowing.
By the days end, you will have come to a place of authenticity and freedom. You will know the power of writing yourself home! You will have found that the sweet whisperings of your soul met you on the page and something shifted. As your truth was revealed, and layers of pain, shame, regret, creativity and wisdom that had been buried or lying dormant has now been released.
This day is a catalyst to discovering that your voice on the page will become your voice in the world.
For those who have never experienced June’s writing programs, this one day workshop will give you an excellent opportunity to be introduced to the experience.
“Thank you Junie for your infinite compassion and wisdom and holding the space for me and everyone else in the room with so much love. And thank you for bringing out the writer in me. I finally feel unblocked!” Susan Little
“Dear Junie, How can I express my gratitude? Once again, you’ve taken me on a journey of self discovery – mixed with love, laughter and tears. You have enabled me to find the place my words are looking for.” Jan Falkowski
“When I arrived here I was completely stuck. I felt self-conscious, worried, couldn’t even think about reading out loud to the group. By the time I left at the end of the day, words were pouring onto the paper like years of uncried tears. I read out loud to the group and felt proud of the things I had written after it was received so warmly by the group. What a personal transformation in 1 day!” Gillian Pierson
You possess a spirit that is ‘real’ and truly compassionate. I am so thankful for all that I learned and shared today. It was so revealing to myself – about myself. I feel like I will ot be the same. Something has been lifted, split open – I feel my heart in a brand new way. And the group was so supportive! Oh, did I forget to mention the laughter, the levity? The dance breaks. That was the cherry on top of an already perfect experience..–Laura Lane

The sweet whisperings of your soul meet you on the page and something shifts. You strengthen. You begin to stand taller and one day you notice that your voice on the page has become your voice in the world.~Junie Swadron
