You are invited to attend the second annual

Creating Space Retreat
The Law of Attraction for Writers

May 12th through 14th
Wellspring Renewal Center, on the Navarro River, Mendocino County.

Writers of all genres and forms welcome.

Join writers Rebecca Lawton and Jordan Rosenfeld at Creating Space, a restorative retreat designed to help you attract the writing time, inspiration, and life that you aspire to lead.

This thoroughly enjoyable weekend fills quickly—enroll today! This year Rebecca and Jordan will be joined by presenters Colin Berry and Penelope LaMontagne.

At Creating Space we will share ways to set intentions, take inspired action, and investigate the “art of allowing.” Discover how sixteen seconds of directed intention each day can improve your life and your writing!

Wellspring's beautiful, private setting above the Navarro River offers the solitude to write and refill the creative well in the center’s many hideaways, by the river, and in the forest. The cost* includes food, lodging, and workshop.

For more information, please email Jordan at writelife(at) earthlink(dot)net
or email Rebecca at becca(at) beccalawton(dot)com.

To register send a $100 deposit (refundable until April 18) to: Rebecca Lawton, P.O. Box 654, Vineburg, CA 95487-0654.
