Storyteller Within Women's Retreats: Writing and Yoga

Checkout Storyteller Within Women’s Retreats Watch Video

The Storyteller Within Women’s Retreats are created for all women who want to reveal their own truths, connect to their intuition, reclaim their soul voice, feel empowered in their unique self-expression (whatever form it takes), and be inspired as the courageous storyteller of their own lives. The Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat has been listed among the top five recommendations for ‘Incredible Writing Retreats to Attend’ for three years in a row (2018, 2017, 2016) by The Write Life, as well as listed #2 among ’10 Empowering Writers’ Retreats for Women’. CreativIndie also included the Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat among a curated list of best writing retreats for 2017 & 2018.

The Journey Into Sacred Expression Women’s Retreat is not about ‘writing’ as a subject or art form. In this retreat, we ourselves are the art form. Every woman has a voice in her own life – we are gathering together to raise it up. The retreat invites you to explore and embrace your role as the storyteller of your life – encouraging you to open up the narratives you live through so you can step more fully into your self-expression.

You will join a women’s sacred circle for opening, expressing, releasing, sharing, and discovering. You are invited to take an honest and creative journey to reclaim your inner voice and heart guidance. You will participate in evening ceremonies and gather around fire, as we seek to stoke our soul voices.

About Aimee Hansen – Creator, Storyteller Within Retreats

Aimee works as a freelance writer, writes children stories, dances with the muse at poetry, and writes into tricky spaces. She holds a 200+ hr yoga teacher certification. She is inspired and humbled by witnessing how something raw and honest in the human spirit aches to open, when given the invitation. She began Storyteller Within retreats to share in the experience of exploring our humanity and stepping into our courage as women.

Q What is the average age of the women who attend the retreat?

So far, women from 22 years old to 70 years old have attended the retreat! This retreat is for women of all ages and is enriched for everyone when the group has a mix. Every group draws its own dynamic, and somehow, it works out beautifully.

For Yoga Forest events: Some fitness is required as it takes a good hike into the forest and then several stone steps up and around, so if you have concerns about this, let me know. 

Q Do I need to be experienced with yoga?

The retreat is open to women with all levels of yoga experience, including beginners. Normally, each retreat has a mix of experience levels among the women. Some days may be easy for you and others may challenge you, but all will be nourishing for your body and mind, and all classes are optional.

Q Do I need to be a writer?

You do not need to consider yourself a "writer" to attend this retreat. Many women do not and some do. This retreat uses writing as our core channel for self-exploration, but it is designed for all women. What matters more is the openness -  perhaps the attraction - to explore writing as a channel for self-exploration and self-expression. 

Q Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is an invitation for any woman who is looking for an opportunity to connect, to explore and to express.
Maybe you are in the middle of a big change, or you are looking to step back and re-center, or you feel drawn to writing, or you love the journey of self-reflection, or you are ending something, or beginning something, or you've experienced loss, or you yearn to find something, or you feel on the verge of something, or you feel lost, or you may just be curious. Or maybe none of that. Maybe you're just wishing to connect with your own voice and those of other women, too. 
There's no one "right" reason to come to this retreat. But if this retreat is "right" for you, you’ll have a hunch.

Q What kind of writing will we be doing?

In this retreat, we are using writing as a channel for insight and vulnerability to explore our stories, reveal deeper truths and glimpse new perspectives. We are not focusing on the techniques of writing or working on the craft, though we will certainly be creative. Every woman has a voice in her life, and we are gathering to raise it up, no matter what expression that takes for each of us.
During the week, we will take a thematic, self-exploratory journey with inspiration, prompts, writing and sharing along the way.

Q What if I have a specific project I want to focus on?

Some women are seeking a retreat with lots of alone time to get away and work on a specific writing project. This is not the best space for that objective! Much of our time will be spent in gathering, balanced with reflection and break time. 
If what you desire is to rekindle your energies towards your projects and get yourself writing again in general, you may find this retreat does exactly that. We will be getting in lots of writing time.

Q Can I write with a laptop?

Please bring a journal and pen(s). For the self-exploratory writing we are doing, and for the circle dynamic, we will be harnessing the power of pen to paper to capture first thoughts. 

Q Can I write in another language? 

Yes, if you choose to. But the retreat will be conducted in English and fluency is necessary to gain the most from the experience of this shared circle.
