Releasing 2021, Embracing 2022: A Meditation and Writing Retreat

con Joan Kling, M.S.

January 14 - 17, 2022

There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” Zora Neale Hurston

As humans we often hold onto resentments and hurts from past experiences. Hanging on to these real or imagined hurts prevents us from moving forward and being fully present to the ones we love, most importantly love of self.

This retreat will help you release any lingering thoughts, feelings, and actions from 2021 that no longer serve you or are causing you pain. It’s about forgiveness of self first, and others second. We will practice daily meditation and write “letters never to be sent.” We will express our hurts and disappointments and then write letters of forgiveness of actions or inactions of ourselves and those of others. We will end the retreat by asking the universe to manifest our specific hopes, desires, and dreams for 2022. This retreat includes daily continental breakfast, lunch and a local field trip to nearby ruins at Tzintzuntzan.

This program is open to all levels of meditation practitioners and writers; no prerequisites.
