Why you should join us on our journey to creative paradise.
“Such a validating experience, really interesting, fun, insightful, lots of gems.”
Magical Journeys & Mardibooks’ writing retreat, what will it bring?
This writing retreat offers participants the opportunities to enjoy abundant time to write, reflect and establish often life-changing alliances and friendships with other writers, away from the constraints of our daily lives. You are invited to come and be part of a transformational journey with people who generously and imaginatively share their creative energy. Story is at the heart of who we are and how we inhabit the world. The empowering pleasure of telling stories and sparking connections with other writers nurtures the creative spirit in profound and illuminating ways. Creativity is a way of connecting with our truest selves, fostering confidence and deeply enhancing a sense of well-being.
“The most wonderful, creative, extraordinary week- full of treats, stretched beyond what I thought I could manage, so rich.”
Magical Journeys Lanzarote is designed to be both restorative and uplifting. If you seek peace, space and the inspiration to rekindle your writing practice then this retreat offers a revelatory time of creative pleasures. Morning workshops will be held in simple sunlit salons or on rooftop terraces. The rest of the day is free for you to write, soak up the sun, go treasure hunting, paint, take photographs, read, wherever your fancy takes you. One-to-one supervision is available.
“An astonishing, rewarding, incredible experience, taking me to another level, very powerful. The very best experience, unimaginably good.”
The workshops will be specifically designed to foster your individual creative development. You will be encouraged and supported to bring to your writing lived experience and undiminished imagination, exposing something sudden, mysterious and unforgettable. This is a retreat which will nourish you spiritually, extend you creatively, and sustain you emotionally. All sessions are optional so you are free to write as much or as little as you wish.
“Profound, subtle and magnificent. I have not laughed so much or learned so much since I was a child.”
Lanzarote offers a completely different Magical Journeys experience, but it shares with the others the sense of being transported somewhere utterly beautiful, to a place rich with possibility and beauty, a space where instinct, experiment and mystery abound, a space for that unique and irreplaceable encounter with inspiration.
“This has been so powerful, it has been lovely being here, writing with you all, it has been challenging but out of that challenge has come exactly the revelation I was looking for, I have loved the feedback and the ability to write in a totally different way from the ways I can write for myself.”
