You can finish the book you dream about, and this time away from your busy life can help you rekindle your passion for writing and move more clearly towards your goal! Come to our retreat to reclaim and nourish your inner creativity--the part of you that is yearning for attention, but has been neglected while you've taken care of everything else. You can choose to put yourself first and start the new year with a renewed focus on your inner creative spirit and your writing goals.


At our Rekindle Creativity retreat for women, certified book coaches Dinah Laprairie and Liisa Kovala will thoughtfully guide you to get your writing goals on track. Here, tucked away in our cozy sanctuary at the Hidden Valley Resort in Muskoka’s winter wonderland, you will find undisturbed time and encouragement to concentrate on your project and connect with yourself and other like-minded creative women.


You will leave the retreat with a renewed sense of creativity and a revitalized action plan to move your manuscript forward.  


Come with us! Re-awaken the glowing embers of your creative self. Celebrate the creative process and the writer that you are.

By November 8: $875 + accommodation
