Details & Registration

Hawaii In-Person Retreat

June 24 - 28, 2024
Sheraton Coconut Beach Resort, Kauai
Facilitated by Alan Cohen

You are cordially invited...

Step back from your daily life, immerse yourself in extraordinary beauty, join with like-minded spiritual writers, and  connect with yourself and your deepest creativity. This retreat will be the perfect topping to your writer’s training, and help you get on track with your life.

Kauai is unique in the Hawaiian islands for its spectacular nature, quiet, and aloha (kindness) spirit. The pace is slow and easy, and people harmonize with heart. There is a Kauai law that no building can be taller than the tallest coconut tree! Kauai has more beaches than any other island, and jaw-dropping mountains, dazzling waterfalls, and serene sunsets.

This is a place for soul renewal.

Program Details

We will gather at the beachfront resort for four days of reflection, training, mutual support, and spiritual restoration. Alan will guide you to call forth your richest talents and bring your writing to the world in the form that works best for you.

While you will learn some writing techniques, the deeper focus will be on how to tap into your unique writing voice, trust your authenticity, stimulate your creativity, move beyond  fears or blocks, and give your writing blessed birth. Along the way we will edify your worthiness to shine not just as a writer, but as a brilliant spiritual being. 

Each day will include two training sessions, a guided visualization, q & a, brief personal coaching within the group, a block of time for you to do your writing, and free time to play and explore one of the most breathtaking sites on the planet.

We will also have the benefit of guest presentations by some very talented and successful spiritual writers, via Zoom.

If you are ready to take your next step as an expressive spiritual writer, and Hawaii calls, please join an inspired group of people who share your path.  

See you in Hawaii in June!
