Time & Location
About the Event
Does the idea of writing a memoir intrigue you?
Have you considered it, only to wonder how to get started?
Do you start, only to get discouraged that no one will read it?
This is not an ordinary writing retreat. You’ll discover why writing a memoir calls to you. You’ll learn the benefits of writing your memoir, even if nobody reads it.
In writing your memoir, you’ll review and make sense of your life and provide meaning to events and themes in your journey.
It’s a deeply personal and can be a profoundly spiritual act of love to be so vulnerable with your truth.
This retreat is designed to support you in creating an approach to writing your memoir. In morning sessions, you'll learn to fashion habits and disciplines to write. You’ll explore your writing style and narrative voice. We’ll also touch on the process of writing a book with publication in mind as well as other aspects of memoir writing.
Afternoons are free time, when you may reflect, plan, write, or explore the natural beauty of the retreat location.
In the evenings, we’ll socialize, talk about our process, and experience fellowship.
Participants will have the option of attending morning meditation sessions led by our retreat staff, and you'll have access to the Yoga Room.
Six Eagles Haven, our Retreat Center, is an amazing and life-affirming place to experience the transformation that will free you to do the important work for your memoir, and our hosts are integral to that transformation.
Each participant will have a one-hour 1:1 writing coaching session with retreat facilitator, self-published memoirist and fiction author Cheri Merz.
Individual coaching sessions are available to be scheduled (at an additional fee) to support you in unblocking any energy blocks that you incur during your stay.
Our evening sessions can take place in the cozy living room, the sheltered hot tub, or around a fire pit (weather and fire restrictions permitting).
Your retreat ticket includes a tour of Colorado’s wine country, the city of Palisade and the surrounding area. The tour will take place on Sunday afternoon and we'll visit several wineries. Wine tasting fees are not included in the tour, but if you choose to enjoy a tasting, the fee is often deducted if you purchase wine.
You’ll leave with a plan for your memoir, clarity about your intentions, and positive energy.
With plenty of time for reflection and development, you may even leave with a written synopsis or outline to follow as you write.
