Writing toward wholeness:exploring creativity and spirituality

Writing toward wholeness leads us to explore the power of story to transform lives.  Through reflecting on the intersection points between creative and spiritual formation, my hope is to help you unlock opportunities for growth in your relationship with yourself, other people, and God.

Upcoming Retreat

A Writing toward wholeness retreat will be offered at Cedarkirk Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center on February 6-7, 2023.To read about last year’s retreat, click the link below.


Retreat sign-up!

This retreat brings together people from all over the country. If you are ready to spend some time in Florida this February – fill out contact form below!



Writing toward wholeness groups are happening online now! You can join an email group, or a Facebook page, and begin writing with a community of people who want to grow in faith through writing!


Writing toward wholeness:exploring creativity and spirituality is also available in book form. 


Come away from the busyness of your life to experience Writing toward wholeness! I work with groups and plan experiential retreats that weave writing and spiritual formation. Retreats are typically 24 to 48 hours, and are held at different venues around the country.

Not ready for a whole retreat? I am available to provide a workshop as part of your conference or program. These workshops can be from one to two hours, for small or large groups, and include interactive exercises to give people an opportunity to experience and reflect on these spiritual practices first hand.



Cedarkirk is a year round camp and conference center owned by the Presbyteries of Tampa Bay and Peace River. It is located on the Alafia River within 170 acres of woodlands, wetlands, and uplands. Cedarkirk is dedicated to providing a place for individuals and groups to have the opportunity for spiritual renewal and growth in a natural environment.


Welcoming across boundaries by providing overnight and day-use accommodations and meeting spaces for individuals and groups. We offer delicious, locally-sourced food; simple, comfortable guestrooms; and a caring touch that honors the distinctive needs of each guest


This program is interactive with lots of writing in community and on your own. Process is much more important than product – so no matter how much (or how little) writing you’ve done in the past, this program can be for you! You can participate in-person, or by taking part in an on-line group.  Let me know on the form below how you’d be interested in joining.

Participants in this program have included people from ages 25 to 85. Small groups that already know each other, and people who’ve never met before have felt that they’ve grown in their relationship with God and with each other. Clergy have also been enthusiastic participants in these programs.
