Memoir & Meditation

November 15 - 17 | 4pm Friday - 2pm Sunday | $325



Dawn Curtis & Ellen Collins

" We are each like an ocean, holding moments and impressions that sometimes hide in the depths and sometimes rise to the surface in shadowed glimpses or in absolute clarity. Memoir is a genre that helps us find those deeper places. Sometimes those deeper moments need to be teased out, because we have safeguarded them in the recesses of our minds. Sometimes all we need is some dedicated time to explore the stories we want to write."

Join Dawn Curtis and Ellen Collins for a weekend retreat of Yoga and Memoir writing in the healing and restorative environment of Galleywinter Farm in the lee of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Using nature, yoga asanas and meditation, plumb the deep well of memory and find the stories that matter.
Ellen Collins is an award-winning writer. She has published two books of poetry (The Memory Thief and Invitations: Poems of Yoga and Meditation). A teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools for over 20 years, she has also led writing workshops for adults and children.
