Join us for a day of writing and exploration of the majestic Sol Duc Falls! Add a soak at the Sol Duc Hot Springs afterwards.

Writing in Nature, Deepening in Self is a retreat series designed to deepen your connection to your creative Self with writing exercises in — and communion with — the natural world. On this trip to the Sol Duc west of Port Angeles, we’ll hike a total of 2 mikes at a slight, rocky incline to commune with and write next to the most beautiful falls in Olympic National Park.

Pro tip: For those who want to warm up after our hikes woth a soak and/or dinner, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort will be open until 8pm.


  • Sol Duc is 2 miles of gradual-but-rocky up/downs that also include staircases and a slippery bridge over the falls.

Additional Notes:
Cost includes brown-bag lunch and — if carpooling with the group — free entrance into Olympic Narional Park.

While every retreat is different, Write & Hike Retreats usually consist of the following:

  • A day or so before the retreat, I send out a pre-retreat writing prompt
  • The day of the retreat, we meet either to carpool or at the trailhead
  • We do some nature-communing exercises and sensory check-ins
  • We give the group writing prompts for the trail
  • We hike (or walk), sometimes as a group, sometimes individually (depending on individual preferences)
  • We share our writings and experiences in circle
  • I lead the group in some breathwork (as a means of connecting with Self and nature)
  • We have a little closing circle.

As I am a soul and nature communicator, I tend to get messages about what’s needed at each retreat, so I try to tailor according to the needs of the group (at both a conscious and soul level) as well as the places in nature we are visiting (they usually have messages to share with the group).
