Move with Mindfulness, Write with Ease

Saturday & Sunday November 1-2, 2014

One Day or Two Day options available.

10 am to 4 pm each day

Come and experience how movement can assist your writing in a relaxed environment, with periods to write built into the day.

This workshop-retreat offers an excellent opportunity for work on a new or ongoing project (e.g. fiction, memoir, poetry, personal journaling), as we experience the fall weekend that includes Dia de los Muertos, All Saints/All Souls, Celtic Samhain (end of harvest) and the beginning of National Novel Writing Month. You can attend Saturday, Sunday, or both days.

Where is it being held?  Still Point Retreat Center is a small-scale, homey/comfy retreat center with a spiritual emphasis, in Stillwater NY, very close to the Saratoga Historical Park, 30 miles north of Albany.

You can commute to the workshop or stay at Still Point.

How much will it cost? $59/1 day, $118/2 days, including options to experience a yoga class, labyrinth walk and other moving meditation, while supplied with noshes throughout the day. Limited income/NANOWRIMO* participant $29/ 1 day, $58/ 2 days.

Accommodations are a separate charge and should be arranged directly with Still Point. Visit the Still Point website at  for pictures and information about the cabins & rooms and to sign up for housing. In conjunction with this retreat, you can opt to stay over Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday nights, depending on what rooms are available at the time you book your accommodation with Still Point.

Included each day in your workshop fee: healthy & tasty breakfast foods in the morning, tea and coffee over the day, home made soup for lunch. If you are staying over, dinner will be shared potluck and the evening will be free time (ideas: write, visit with others, rest, walk on the grounds or read).

How do I sign up for the workshop?  This is deliberately a small workshop so it is advised to sign up as soon as you know you’d like to come.  First, let us know you are attending and which days, through the Contact Us page on this website, and second, mail a check to Of-the-Essence Holistic Wellness, P.O. Box 1344, Troy NY 12181 or contact us for cash payment options.
