Join poet Alexandra Elle and yoga instructor Racheal Weathers for a weekend workshop centered on helping women discover their voice, speak their truth, and cultivate a state of meditation through authentic storytelling and journaling.

Through partner/group work, breakout writing sessions, individual and group journaling sessions, meditation, group discussion, physical movement, and time outdoors, you will learn:

To find your voice and share your stories through words, written reflection, and community

  • To dig deeper through introspection, conversation, and community building to find and create your unique voices
  • To share your stories through words and written reflection
  • To use writing as a meditation practice and form of self-inquiry
  • To more fully occupy your writing practice with consistency and authenticity.

Look forward to an exploration of writing as a vehicle for self-reflection. Share your deepest wisdom and leave more empowered to put your voice-your truth-out into the world.
