August 30-September 2, 2019

This retreat features a talk by a published writer as well as scheduled blocks of reading time. You may choose to stay immersed in a good read or cycle a local route, take a yoga class, jog, hike, etc. Whether you come with a family member, friend or prefer to fly solo, we enjoy meeting new people and it’s our goal to make you feel welcome.

All meals, tea, coffee, snacks are included. Breakfast is flexible, allowing you to continue your morning routine. Other meals are served together as a group. Meals will primarily be catered through Woodstock Farmer’s Market, the Village Butcher, and other local favorites.
