SPA-tacular Writing in June, Ojai

Imagine writing … for five days with no “life” distractions … in a spa robe or swimsuit lounging poolside. Imagine taking in pristine beauty on a magical mountaintop or journaling at an artisan sanctuary.

This could be more than a fantasy, come June.

Join the founder of Ojai Writers Conference and Ojai Summer Writers Workshops, Sequoia Hamilton {bio here} for a week of relaxation and writing at rejuvenating spas, enchanting artisan enclaves and inspiring spiritual retreats.

Ojai’s unique east-west mountain orientation and deep valley attracted the Chumash Indians, the original inhabitants of this area who revered the land as a healing “nest” and therefore sacred. Frequently they would take those needing “re-energizing” to the sacred sulfur springs for soaking.

Ancient and contemporary spiritual seekers ascribe mystical powers to this valley calling it a “vortex” and claim its energy has the ability to “awaken” people on many levels. Writers from around the world have come here to start, work on or finish their writings. Join us for SPA-tacular Writing and do both!

Find inspiration for your writing projects in Ojai’s serene beauty. There are no big box retailers or “chain” stores – and with its citrus, lavender fields and olive oil groves, well, it feels a bit like a European vacation.

You’ll feel right at home … and yet a million miles away.
