What better way to uncover our light than through self-exploration, going within, and listening to the soul? Writing and drawing are two forms of self-expression that open channels to new aspects of ourselves, thus helping bring our inner gifts to awareness. This workshop will offer opportunities to explore our inner world through written words, images and symbols. Rest assured that the workshop will offer a non-judgmental space for inner exploration without concern about the quality of writing or drawing, just the inner journey.
"Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world."
From An Interrupted Life by Etty Hillersum
The best for your inspiration
Although the founders of the Inspired Writing Retreat have connections with the Geneva Writers Group, the Retreat is an independent event. The Retreat offers a different perspective on writing focusing on the source of inspiration and how to tap into that more effectively and in that sense builds on the GWG experience. The Geneva Writers Conference is as always the go to place to learn about the writing craft, its technical and publishing aspects.

Jungian analyst, lecturer, seminar leader and author of Spontaneous Drawing, a Window on the Soul. “I am a traveler to the inner and outer realms. With Jung, I truly believe that our times are times of transition; the collective unconscious provides support in this era for change and reconnection to the essential. My aim is to bring people closer to the source within where they find their true orientation and sense of destiny. I invite all who are interested in raising their awareness and who are seeking to live a fuller life to join me in exploring the inner spheres in themselves
