Journaling retreats

Journaling is sometimes referred to as reflective writing, but whatever term you use, it’s a clever and creative freeflow practice that allows us to empty our heads and hearts onto paper, without external judgement. You’ll be at your most honest, raw and vulnerable so it’s vital you’re in trustworthy hands. We’ve tried and tested our journaling retreats and we know you’ll be nurtured, whether you head to the Scottish Highlands, the south of France, rural Kent in the UK or Hawaii. Some journaling retreats will ask you to write first thing, just after waking, as author Julia Cameron recommends in her book, The Artist’s Way. The idea is you’ll empty your head of emotional clutter into your Morning Pages so you can go through the rest of the day, unencumbered. Other retreats will have structured questions for you to write about. Reading back your pages isn’t always a comfortable experience, and you’ll notice plenty of repetition, waffle and even profanity. But you’ll get to know yourself better, you’ll discover mental clarity and you’ll problem-solve as you identify patterns of inner dialogue and behaviour.
