St. Dorothy's Rest Artists and Writers Retreat

You're invited to join a welcoming group of Artists & Writers of ALL mediums, for three peaceful days devoted to your creative work, and joyful evenings spent in community. 


Bring your materials and join fellow creatives for a weekend in the serene redwoods.  You’ll find your good workspace in historic buildings, in the chapel, and outdoors for spacious daylight hours to work on whatever you’d like – writing a song or writing the next chapter of a novel, painting an icon or a watercolor, beginning or continuing the project you’ve had in mind for a while, or trying your hand at something new.

Evenings this emergent community of old friends and new will gather to share fresh, unfinished work with the retreat’s long standing listening and feedback practice that inspires many to share new work in progress for discerning, encouraging, and inspiring response. ​

Each years’ mix of old timers and newcomers includes both seasoned artists and people who’ve come to risk trying something new. Together we’ll make three peaceful, powerful days devoted to your creative work, and three joyful evenings seeing, hearing, and sharing our work.
