Event Feedback

My intention shared during our opening night circle was affirmation and clarification. Both happened. The connections and conversations with the other women here were true gifts.
— Lisa Kramme
The biggest benefit for me has been learning to recognize, pay attention to and trust in the wisdom that comes when I take time to reflect. This retreat is rich with wisdom and I leave this place with a full heart and gratitude for all of the soul sisters I will carry with me as I leave.
— Marlys Rucker
I needed this to get me back to writing my memories, from which I have strayed in recent months. A truly inspirational and enriching experience, not only the writing but the sharing of each other’s journeys! Mary Kay and Diane have a special talent for guiding us through such a meaningful journey.
— Carol Corrigan
The biggest benefit of coming to this retreat has been inspiration, renewed sense of purpose, renewed passion. The way the retreat is structured allows time for reflection and clarity. Experiencing this will help me as I write on my own in my own practice.

I wanted to drop you a quick note - I enjoyed and got a lot out of your session today. I found the progression of activities helpful - the list making was really an effective “warm up.” And the dialogue exercise was personally interesting too. Thanks for the cool workshop!”

Journey Through the Forest: A Women's Writing Retreat

Thursday, February 15, to Sunday, February 18, 2018


Event Feedback

Every detail was covered. Even down to soothing candlelight table arrangements. Sessions were planned with group sharing and exercises and balanced teaching time by each of you. The Friday night exercise was timed right and very valuable. Loved that you planned a “social’.
— Retreat Participant, Racine, WI
This was my first writing retreat and I found it to be one of the best of all the retreats I have made through the years. The verses selected from various authors were insightful and enriching. I would love copies of those not in our itinerary. The structure was well planned and flowed nicely to build our journey these past few days. My needs were met beyond my expectations.
— Retreat participant
Honestly, I had no idea what to expect. Because Diane and Mary Kay put a great amount of research, effort, tried and true experience, and heart and soul into this content, it was an experience that challenged, nurtured, and called forth wisdom, discernment, and processes I can actually use on my own. I feel empowered, hopeful, and grateful. Thank you!

— Retreat Participant, Racine, WI
I thought the whole workshop was more reflective writing but was so pleased at how I could use practical techniques to also deepen answers to my personal questions and end up with a start to a personal essay.
