Testimonials from previous retreat participants...
I really enjoyed the Stream of Consciousness Writers retreat in Sedona, February 2022.
I loved that Gloria Coppola had authors talk about a different aspect of the writing process. Most memorable were be your authentic self and describing your characters. I liked the exercise of describing a piece of food we ate too. Never thought about how to describe a chocolate covered strawberry before. That was fun.
She is all about guiding the light to shine through people so they can live the best version of themselves.
I went, not as a book author, but as it may help me grow as a person and use writing skills I learned in my business. So, if you do not identify yourself as an author, I would still recommend you attend if her retreat calls to your heart. Even if it is one presenter you identify with. You will receive what you need from her retreat.
~ Traci Hardin
Gloria Coppola and her team of authors were amazing and had so much to offer in their presentations and guidance. This was a writing conference but so much more for me. It was about being and not doing. I was immersed in the beauty around me and the company of like-minded souls.
This was a journey of self-discovery.
Yes, I was forced out of my comfort zone but something beautiful emerged. Some of us stayed up late, weary-eyed during deep conversation at a fire pit and I remember thinking "you can't get this moment back."
Thank you for this experience! My wish for everyone in 2022 is abundance, joy and aliveness and I certainly achieved this in your presence and going forward.
~Lou Ann Chesire

SPOKEN is the lifestyle experience at a select group of hotels set in restorative destinations.
SPOKEN is for those of us who seek to discover our voice, and our flow so we can connect deeply to our own unique purpose. It is spiritual in that we believe well being begins from connection within rather than something acquired. Our hotels are intentional sanctuaries for you to be present with others, and with the natural energies that exist in these destinations. From the way you are greeted upon arrival, to the holistic programming included with your stay, to the send-off back home, this is the SPOKEN way.
