From the moment I arrived, I immediately knew that this was the perfect place to experience a Wellness and Writing Retreat. I began meeting like-minded writers who were there for the same thing…to be inspired to become better writers, and to live a healthier lifestyle. I met the host, Julie Colvin, who is an amazing, supportive, and beautiful person inside and out. The workshop presenters were incredible: Lisa, Gary, Windy, & Priya. Our group connected as we gave each other support and love throughout the entire week. We dined together on amazing food. We shared our stories. We laughed. We cried. We learned meditation, yoga, and Qigong. We explored vortexes and other sacred areas. We laughed, danced and hugged, and literally got “sparkled.” We healed. We transformed. I even got a dragonfly tattoo to symbolize my transformation. I am a better version of myself and I write everyday, thanks to this Wellness & Writing Retreat. I’m signed up and excited to attend their next retreat… in Italy!! ~ Connie Carmack Caudill
