Writers Retreat with Paula D’Arcy

Nazareth Retreat Center 134 Main St, Nazareth, KY

You do not need to consider yourself a seasoned writer to attend this writer's retreat. This is a gathering for those who enjoy writing, even if it's only in your journal. By writing together and sharing words so much arises.
Each day will be a rhythm of writing practice, sharing, music, film and poetry. We'll use writing prompts to discover what moves the heart and what we are being called to embrace for the sake of the world.

Paula D'Arcy is a writer, international retreat leader, and the founder and President of Red Bird Foundation. Red Bird Foundation supports the growth and spiritual development of all who want to live with a more open heart, including those in limited circumstances such as individuals in prison or those in great need, and those invested in the healing of this world. Paula is a former psychotherapist whose personal tragedy led her to reach out to others. Through her retreats and publications, she is a beacon of hope as we encounter challenges and grief throughout our life. Among her best-selling books are Gift of the Red Bird, Waking Up to This Day, and Stars at Night.
