      Spiritual Summer Camp: Writing Out Writing In: Nature, Poetry, and the Spiritual Journey

      I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,for going out, I found, was really going in.  —John Muir                                             Explore the rhythm of spending time in nature and turning inward to reflect on its wisdom by entering into the process naturalist John Muir described as “going out and going in.”  Learn from the words and experiences of poets such as Mary Oliver and Gillian Clarke before taking time to engage your own experiences through simple writing exercises. Tickets - $15/advanced purchase; $20/at the door Dr. Terri Lynn Simpson is the founder of Anam Cara Retreats. Celtic spirituality is her path, writing is her practice, and inviting people into thin places where they may share their stories and experience the presence of the Holy is her work. In addition to having a graduate degree in theology and a doctorate in Spirituality and Story, Terri is a long-time student of Celtic spirituality. Grounded in the three-fold practices of prayer, pilgrimage and poetry, she weaves strands of these Celtic influences into the retreats, pilgrimages and workshops she leads in the US and in the UK for churches, healing ministries, women’s groups and faith based non-profit organizations.
