Patchwork Farm Writing & Yoga Retreat

Event Details

  • At the heart of this retreat is the joining of Creative Writing, Hatha Yoga, and Meditation. Patricia Lee Lewis & Charles MacInerney have combined their energies for 17 years to offer this powerful path to the creative self.

    We will have exclusive use of Stump Sprouts, a rustic, multi-season resort and retreat center situated in rural northwest Massachusetts. The center of the resort is a hand-crafted guest lodge, converted dairy barn, and 200 year old farmhouse.

    The Yoga, led by Charles, creates in you a sense of physical well-being, while bringing you back to your body and your senses. Each Yoga class ends with a deep guided relaxation which calms your mind and helps it to relax into a creative Alpha brainwave pattern.

    Patricia leads the writing circles in a way designed to help you bypass your inner critic and go directly to images, feelings or memories--to the places steeped in story and natural language. Because this is the time to generate new writing, rather than to critique what you have already prepared, you will be encouraged to write freely to the extent possible, without editing.

    Gathering in small, intimate groups, you will be invited to read what you have written. Group members respond only with what is strong in the piece, what they remember, what is vivid. The process is highly encouraging and supportive to the natural voice and to you as a writer, whether you are beginning again after years away; an experienced writer in need of a jump start; or you are in the middle of a project and are looking for new ideas and time dedicated to writing.
