Wide Open Writing in Costa Rica

Presented by: Dulcie Witman & Nancy Coleman

We are convinced that writing is a path to the creative genius in all of us. Whether you call yourself a writer or not, we know the transformational power of putting yourself in a nurturing environment with permission to notice what you notice and then write about it.

Come be part of a writing community that is devoted to co-creating magic in a place well known for its magnificent scenery, gourmet vegetarian food, and deep connection to the natural world. Our writing retreats have become renowned as “life-changing” and “magical” and “beyond anything I could have imagined”. Join us for 7 days/6 nights as we settle our body mind and spirit into the magical bounty of the Costa Rican Rainforest.

Round trip transportation - San Jose International Airport directly to our retreat home

TEACHERS

Dulcie Witman

Dulcie Witman, our retreat leader and the co-founder/owner of Wide Open Writing, is also a founding editor of Minerva Rising and has had work published in The Pitkin Review, Rawboned and elsewhere. She teaches creative writing in Eindhoven, Netherlands with Watershed at their summer program, Camp Cushy. She completed a novel, Crooked Love, and is currently working on a professional memoir, Confessions of a Therapist. She believes sharing creative space gives power to the connections that fuel the creative process – giving life to something that wasn’t there before. Witty, heartbreaking, and searingly true, Dulcie’s flair is as unique as she is. Trained as a therapist, Dulcie has been in private practice as a therapist in Maine for the past twenty-five years.

Nancy Coleman

Nancy Coleman, our yoga teacher and writing facilitator, has been a practicing psychotherapist for more than thirty years, earning her PhD from Columbia University. She’s studied mindfulness, body-mind integrative practices and EMDR. She’s fascinated by how new discoveries in the science of psychology weave together with ancient Eastern wisdom to inform our journeys to health. Her yoga practice of over twenty years led her to become a teacher of yoga. For Nancy, every word matters, and yet the word is not the path – nothing matters more than phosphorescence and prayer. Additionally, in her writing life, she’s had work published in The Sun, Minerva Rising, and in the compilation, Maine Voices.
