Workshops, retreats, talks, film screenings, book signings and more
Your writing retreat was a soul deep experience for me that I will cherish for time to come. I am grateful for your attention to our needs and much appreciate the answers you gave around writing and publishing. Yet the value of your retreat was so much more than this. By creating the inspiring and meditative space that you so lovingly put together for us daily, and during each practice that you set up before writing prompts, you gave us a gift of freedom simultaneously with connection. Your “prompts” were a form of intuitive facilitation that flowed through the core of our beings, and connected us as community as we simultaneously connected more deeply with our true selves, our soul, and our soul’s purpose. What emerged on paper for me was much more than just writing. I did contribute a little writing to one of my forthcoming books.
But the real treasure was the soul speaking words that came forth in my writing, and made this a sacred self-care experience.
You are so gifted in sharing these beautiful epiphanies, encouraging, and empowering others. I will forever be blessed by this experience this weekend. I can’t thank you enough! This weekend retreat was so helpful to me on not only my writing path and integrating meditation with my writing, but was so helpful on my own spiritual journey as well. Now at the end of this time in this sacred space, I feel so affirmed, and so connected to source the people here, the earth, and all that inhabit it. I am beyond filled by this experience, and I’m excited about what each of us can now bring to all our world. You have filled us with oceans of love. I see spirit in you and your light is lifting all you connect with.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Being here made me realize it wasn’t just about writing to be a writer. It was also about learning how to be able to write my thoughts down in ways I didn’t know I could. Learning meditation, being alone to listen to my own thoughts, and writing to release some emotions and tensions was just what I needed.
Thank you for being you, and always being so inclusive.

"With canny language and the authority of a parent’s experience, Jamie Weil’s FIRST BREAK captures chills and spills on the broken roller coaster of manic depression. Her protagonist, Paige, begins to unravel the summer before college and the young woman's chaotic, heartbreaking, and redemptive journey to gain control of her life is as insightful as it is thrilling."
