Join us in-person at our beautiful Concord retreat house for a day of literary inspiration through creative workshops, nature exploration, meditation, compassionate conversation and Tarot power — and enjoy time to write in a beautiful, calming space.
This BEtreat offered by Be Well Be Here in collaboration with Blaze Tarot features New York Times / international bestselling author and co-founder of A Mighty Blaze, Jenna Blum, who specializes in Tarot readings for creatives and their projects, especially books! Jenna will share writing wisdom and offer personal Tarot sessions to help guide you toward inspired next steps in your writing life.
Jenna will be joined by celebrated memoirist, speaker and healthcare activist, Maryanne O’Hara, author of “Little Matches: A Memoir of Finding Light in the Dark.” Maryanne’s Mindful Storytelling Session will explore how the synchronicities that we humans experience help us find meaning and purpose in our lives. Using images and reflections that speak to universal themes, Maryanne will shares her story of resilience, of finding light in our darkest hours, and offer suggestions for discovering one’s purpose.
Have a scene or section of your work that feels stuck? Be Well Be Here founder Lara Wilson, longtime writing teacher, short story author and curator of the Concord Festival of Authors will guide you through an inspirational editorial exercise with 3 pages of your work to help you Process your Process. Lara will also share popular BWBH practices: meditation for creativity and a mindful Nature Walk.
