The All Souls Writing Retreat - Kenyon Ranch Tubac, Arizona November 3 - November 9, 2016 Come join us in Tucson, Arizona for its enchanting, other-worldly All Souls Procession. All cultural traditions and all forms of expression swirl and sway through the streets of the city in a joyous event actively honoring death, loss and the fruitful darkness. Under wide skies and in the shadow of the city’s sacred mountains, we open to the page. Spend seven days and six nights in the transformative process of supported engagement with that which has seemed unwriteable. Bring your grief, your creativity, your loneliness, curiousity and wonder. Bring your willingness to explore your own depths. Whether encountering the powerful openings which can follow the deaths of loved ones or hoping to transform the parts of ourselves to whom we’re wanting to say goodbye, as we write we transcend; joy awakens, magic is cultivated.
