Ego Break 7/23b: A Unique Writers Retreat in Crescent City, Northern California

Everything Is OK on an Ego Break!

The mission of Ego Break Writers Retreats is to facilitate unique, all inclusive, destination retreats that show rather than tell writers how to thrive. It is our vision to creatively expand consciousness through experiential retreats for writers.


July 21-26, 2023: Check in between 5pm and 9pm on July 21. Check out by 11am on July 26. Please scroll to the bottom of this page for room options.


While the location of each Ego Break Retreat changes, the essence and promise remain the same. Ego Break is an experiential, all inclusive, writers retreat for journal writers, novice writers, professional writers, and everyone in-between. Rather than offering workshops that lecture on the mechanics of craft, Ego Break Retreats focus on creativity and character development. No matter your genre or where you are in your writing journey, the expanded and unique perspectives you’ll gain on this retreat will rejuvenate your writing and your life. Ego Break promises to be an experience you’ll write about! –Please scroll to the bottom of this page for room options.–

Ego Break Writers Retreat


Experiences:

Critique Sessions
Read up to 2000 words of a project you would like to receive on the spot critiques from the whole group. Be prepared to humbly receive and give constructive criticism. The critiques will be spread out over a few days to give everyone an hour for feedback.

Ego Break
In this two part workshop, we’ll break down the ego, ego constructs, and ego programing. Once you experience an ego break, you’ll expand your awareness in the essence of character development. This informational and experiential workshop includes a guided, group meditation.

Creative Channel
In this two part workshop, you’ll learn more about where creativity comes from and how to access that space. This informational and experiential workshop includes a group Reiki Session.

1 Hour Private Reiki & BioMat Session
Reiki works to clear disturbances in the body’s energy fields. The disturbances are experienced as different symptoms, such as conscious and unconscious beliefs that do not serve us. Your optional private Reiki session could help with imposter syndrome, fear of success, creativity, procrastination, or your session could be used to help with completing a goal. More about Reiki here. More about the BioMat here.

Mystery Dinner Party
What better way to experience characterization than stepping into character? If you would like to participate in Ego Break’s Mystery Dinner activity, you’ll receive your character’s information in advance of the retreat. On the night of the mystery dinner, each participating guest will play out their character’s role until the mystery has been solved.

Writing Time / Free Time
And, of course, there will be plenty of time to write! Work on your current projects or create new ones inspired by Northern California’s beauty.

Day Trip From Crescent City to Klamath
Don’t forget to pack your hiking boots! We’ll drive down Northern California’s Coastline, and stop at different points to explore Crescent City Beach, Endert Beach, Wilson Creek Beach, Hidden Beach, and Lost Rock Boulders. We will have a picnic lunch at one of the stops during this day trip.

Day Trip To Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park
We’ll don our hiking boots again to spend a good part of the day driving, hiking, and forest bathing through the Redwoods. Time (and energy) permitting, we’ll stop at four trail-heads: Boy Scout Tree, Grove of the Titans, Stout Grove, and Simpson-Reed. Be prepared to get your steps in…about eight miles walking distance overall.

Scrabble Tournament
We’ll play Scrabble, and we won’t stop until we have an Ego Break Scrabble Wizard!

My Intent Craft
You’ll choose a word of inspiration and create a keychain, necklace, or bracelet for focus.
