Luminous Moment, Luminous Word: A Creative Writing and Mindfulness Retreat

Please visit our website ( for the necessary documents (schedule, lodging information and packing list) and information breakdown pertaining to this retreat! Tickets can be purchased here:

Outdoor walks and writing adventures will be woven into teaching sessions focusing on ways to become more engaged with the natural world by becoming increasingly observant, contemplative and manifestly creative.

Note to Participants:
It is very important to register and to arrange for lodging early because this retreat opportunity is very popular and limited to 30 people.  We held the first one three years ago at the same location with Debra Marquart and it sold out quickly. So, now is time to jump into this adventure that assures delight and personal growth. The $80 registration fee covers your food for three days, excluding the box lunch in McLeod. The rest of the program costs are being underwritten by the ND Humanities Council and their “Think Outside” project. There are a wide range of lodging options available to you with the least expensive being the bunkhouse or tent camping.  There are showers available at the camp and a refrigerator in the Hopwell House.  Ice is available and coolers are encouraged for individual beverages and snacks.
