Celebrating Wellness & Writing's Third Birthday!
October marks three years since the creation of my first Wellness & Writing Retreat. Now, six Retreats later, it's evident that W&W is growing strong and proud, ready to take bold new steps towards providing more for our growing community of writers.
I have recently returned from facilitating our latest amazing Retreat in Nerano, Italy. Today, I find myself reflecting on the journey that has led me to this point in time; a milestone that could have only happened by following my heart and intuition. Had I listened to the fears that surfaced when I started on my path to becoming a published author, editor and ghostwriter (and now a successful Retreat Facilitator), I would have missed out on the magic that lay before me. I would have never known the joy that follows falling in love with new and amazing like-minded writers. Thankfully, I worked past that whisper of fear and trusted in my passion, and for that I, am deeply grateful.
Wellness & Writing would not exist without you, the writers, and most especially our treasured teachers: Lisa Fugard, Gary Finnan, Windy Lynn Harris and Priya Rana Kapoor.
Every Retreat is profound in its own unique way. Every step forward I take when following my heart provides new and exciting opportunities. As I grow, our W&W family grows. In a life that can be unpredictable and fragile at the best of times, if there is one thing I know beyond all-knowing, it’s when to celebrate the wins.
Happy Birthday Wellness & Writing and many thanks to this beautiful community of writers for helping me to build an environment that dreams are made of!
With Enormous Love & Eternal Gratitude ~ Julie Colvin
