This is my personal invitation for you to journey to your own private “Haven” with my friend Laura Munson’s writing retreats and get inside your own story.
My girl crush with Laura’s mind began with the reading of her memoir, “This is not the story you think it is, A season of unlikely happiness”. The way she writes, how she tells the story, and her courage on the page was an invitation in possibility to birth my own book. I had to find a way to connect and download from her heart to mine. Desire landed me in Whitefish Montana in February. Haven was a blanket of snow and ice that wrapped itself around my page. It was a cathartic space of intention between Laura’s teaching, the log cabins and my soul. The writing prompts, the prose poems, the nightly readings, the human collective, the cuisine and my own presence were all the ingredients needed for personal growth as an author.
Laura’s one on one took me to places I never intended to go as a writer, forcing me to dig deeper into the experience that my story was mining. I sobbed and wrote, I laughed and wrote, my stomach churned and I wrote. Laura provoked my book outline to take on another layer that stretched my creativity and the truth behind “why” this story was being told.
Haven will be the experience it is meant to be for you. Whether you choose the season of snow or the tropical sun kissed location it will be where you are meant to be to connect with the source of your muse. Be open to letting go of what your ego thinks the experience will be and allow your soul to write from a space of intention. You will exit this experience a better writer with a clear outline of your project and your own personal writers statement. Also, if you are open and willing to dive deep into yourself you may feel a slight shift in your core toward whom you are meant to be as a writer.
