A New Year’s Retreat to Prepare You to Write and Publish Your Book in 2022

Writing Retreat with Tanya
January 1st & 2nd

Beloved writer,

A brand new year is upon us, and I want to ask you a question:

On New Year's 2021, did you promise yourself that 2021 would be the year you’d finally write your book?

Did it happen?

If you made that promise, and didn’t keep it, this retreat is for you. 


If you're like most of my students, you're likely to be highly gifted, a natural storyteller, mystic, magician, somatic therapist, master teacher, healer or witch with a bit of a rebel's heart, no matter what your formal work in the world is. 


You also know you're a leader and that your story is calling you, louder and more relentlessly, to make itself known at this time. This is about embodying your soul's work, and stepping into your highest calling in the world, which has been prevented because you haven't written and published your book yet. 


Likely, last year wasn't the only year that you broke your promise to your book (and yourself.) 


While you're an alchemist and know your ability to manifest and make magic, you haven't been able to break through the writing resistance on your own, and sticking with your commitment to this book has clearly been a problem. 


When you're honest with yourself, you know why. There's some terror around letting go of the last vestiges of your ego and sharing your real story publicly. You're aware that once your book is published, you'll be seen exactly for who you are down into your core.


And when you write a deep book, a true book, a book where you actually speak from a place of your power, which includes your deep vulnerability, your entire life will change. 


This knowledge both thrills and terrifies you – and with that inner battle going on, another year slips by without a book to show for it.

What if you could change that?

What if you could step into 2022 creating clarity about your writing, about this and that?

What if you could get the energetic and magical support from the beginning of the year to set yourself up for what you're created to do? 

On the first two days of the new year, January 1st and 2nd, I will be leading a magical writer's retreat meant to help you liberate your voice, set up the energetics for your writing container, overcome resistance, and begin to map out your story. This will be the fifth year in a row that we've started the year with a writer's retreat.

These are powerful times of coming together to set strong intentions, generate magic, and allow you to begin to step into a truly embodied plan for writing your story in the new year.


Day One: Liberate Your Voice, Untether Your Power 

  • Day One will take you into the heart of the Somatic Writing process to address lingering issues related to voice, worthiness, desire and lifelong “intractable knots” you carry  which may be preventing you from expressing your deepest, most intimate stories.

  • We'll spend time doing magical soul retrieval work related to your writing, calling back aspects of yourself through connection to ancestors, the elements, your body, the land, and magical timelines to allow you to untether your power and more fully liberate your voice. 

Day Two: Story Weaving

  • On the second day, we’ll help you set up your energetic container for your book then dive into the process of narrative braiding- story weaving.

  • We'll take you through an intuitive story mapping process calling up “shimmering images” from your life to help you identify some of your fire-and-bone stories and fascia stories, held deeply in embodied memory.

  • Courtney Reed-Marsh,Somatic Writing co-teacher, and master editor, will join us to work with you on the art and craft of story. We’ll discuss and practice braiding two to three different narrative threads together, part of the craft of writing a memoir. 

  • There will be opportunities to write and share, sacred circle style, at several points throughout the week-end.  

  • Lastly we will cover a magical practice for writing, accountability, and creating a more empowered author’s identity using a black book and the moon cycle to support you. 

  • Wherever you’re at in your author’s journey, this retreat is sure to activate your fire and allow you to jump into a generative new year!
