Retreats, Workshops & Classes
Sometimes our circumstances are such we need to remain and grow where we are. But sometimes, when life allows, we need to get away and retreat to learn to breathe again and regain our balance.
–And so we find ways we can come together with others of like mind, to get away in an idyllic setting, away from the routine, the requirements, the numbing repetition of existence, to find and reclaim our art and, therefore, ultimately our lives. Once reclaimed, we can return home, knowing that the magic was never in that location but rather, is within each of us. It is us and is wherever we are, whatever we do, and is part of that essence that this world has never seen before and will never see again. Ultimately we realize that by retreating we are never “getting away from” but rather, if we are lucky, we live a life in which we are always following our own sacred path toward who we are meant to be.

Listen deeply to your body to tap into the stories stored there
Sculpt time to be at the page
Specific tools and techniques to develop and to maintain momentum, and establish a consistent writing practice
Experience writing as a way to connect with your authentic self
Be part of a supportive community of peers that is committed to writing and listening together
Time for you. Just you! (each day you’ll get time to disappear if you want, to explore New Harmony or your writing or yourself)

Write into your stories
Nashville, TN | dates TBD
As an experienced labyrinth facilitator, let Terry teach you the benefits of this walking meditation including some history and a lot of ideas for getting the most from your labyrinth experiences and how to identify inspirations from individual walks as well and discerning ideas that come together as a result of multiple walks. Workshops will be scheduled throughout 2017 in middle Tennessee and return here for a schedule of workshops led elsewhere. Terry is also available to travel to a labyrinth near you to lead a personal or group workshop.
FROM SPARK TO STORY WORKSHOPS WITH CHARLOTTE RAINS DIXON
COMING IN WINTER 2017 AND SPRING 2018
From Spark to Story Workshop
At the Scarritt-Bennett Center, Nashville, Tennessee
Presented by Writing Wild and True
Charlotte Rains Dixon and Terry Price - Workshop leaders
Join Charlotte and Terry for a Friday night/all-day Saturday creative workshop on the meditative grounds of the Scarritt-Bennett Center in beautiful Nashville.
In this intensive two day event, you’ll learn to dream then mine your dreams for ideas and directions to talk your creativity. This will be very much a hands-on experience with lots of exercises and musings designed to free you from your logical, critical brain thinking, sending you deep into that which is of your essence. And once we’ve played Friday night, we’ll send you home to sleep and dream and allow your subconscious to play with all of the fun things you’ve come up with. On Saturday, you’ll return, refreshed and excited to find out what other playful things we’ll be doing to continue to tease out your inner creativity. Finally, on Saturday afternoon, we’ll work with you to show you how to take the whisperings of the muse and turn them into your writings.
