Writing from the Centre: A Day Away to Write

On your day away you will:

  • start with a gentle yoga class (optional)

    • Hi Patti,
      The retreats take place at my home, which is just outside Mount Albert in a rural subdivision. We do not have access to public transit so you would need to have access to a car to get here. Sometimes we can pair people up (i.e. if we know we have a registrant driving up from Toronto). I hope this answers your question, all the best,
