The Berkshires, MA

Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health


A Weekend Retreat for Everyone.

Resistance, courage, persistence, patience, coping with the inner censor (that whispering voice telling you that you can’t write)—these are all part of the writer’s life. Address these issues in a weekend with Dani Shapiro, a gifted and experienced teacher and best-selling author of seven books, including the memoirs Devotion and Slow Motion.

In this interactive workshop, we delve into the roadblocks that stop us from finding our stories and telling them. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, a writer of memoir or fiction, you’ll find a renewed sense of commitment to your creative self in this inspiring and thoughtful program.

Note Bring a notebook and pen.
