Book Epiphany Writing Retreat


with Dr Ezzie Spencer
 

Imagine an all-inclusive week in tropical paradise, devoted entirely to your book.

 

You’ve got an idea. You want to roll.


Perhaps you want to find CLARITY on your topic and key message.


Perhaps you really want to nail your outline (in peace!).

 

Perhaps you want to get that first draft DONE.

 

Or maybe you want to (finally) get that final draft ready.

 

But as much as you want to make serious progress, things keep getting in the way. Those real-world responsibilities (like family, work, dishes, laundry, clients, commitments etc) can make it impossible to bunker down to book-writing-business.

Wouldn’t it be lovely (and oh-so-productive) to step away from all your other duties and dig into your creative work?

Imagine a chunk of time – just for you and your book – to canoodle closely. No other worries. No competing obligations. Complete space and freedom.

Oh, and imagine you get to do it in the creative cauldron of BALI. With someone who knows it.

I’m Ezzie Spencer PhD. I’m an entrepreneur, the creator of Lunar Abundance and the author of An Abundant Life: Flourishing with the Cycles of the Moon.

I’d love you to experience the pleasure of an immersive writing experience guided by me in beautiful Bali.

 

 

You’re invited to my Bali Book Writing Retreat

 

This retreat is for busy women who’d love to step out of their full lives for a week to focus and write-write-write up a storm in tropical Bali. 

 

If taking a week away to be taken care of (entirely) in a luxurious location sounds like a dream come true…

 

 

It’s time to write your heart out.

 

When:
Sunday September 3rd – Friday September 8th

Where:
A magical fairyland in Ubud, Bali.

Who: An intimate group of writers (will you be one of them?)

 
Ezzie is incredibly smart, articulate and intuitive. She also brought a lot of helpful business strategy in. As an experienced editor, Ezzie has a talent for seeing what’s working AND what’s missing in your manuscript. Ezzie helped me clarify my intentions so I can write purposefully, helped me see what I needed to do to help my reader engage more effectively with my book, and identified some issues for me to rectify so my book can have the impact on my reader AND on my business that I desire. A really powerful and inspiring intensive — thanks so much for your guidance Ezzie!

What You’re Really Getting

The time and space to take a huge step forward as a writer.

A book outline nailed, the topic CLEAR, words down on paper, and confidence about your next steps.

 You’ll fly home from this week feeling an enormous sense of achievement.

You’ll have met some inspiring new connections and friends, and expanded into a greater sense of magic and possibility for your book. 

 

Ezzie is a modern alchemist, she looks at you with her sparkling eyes and commands your aliveness and authenticity. And she asks great questions. All are important when coaxing your book forward and center. Ezzie is a Book Whisperer and the best friend, cheerleader, coach you wish you had.

Here’s what to expect:

 

·      The retreat will run Sunday to Friday (we'll start with a group dinner on the Sunday evening).

·      An extra night of accommodation just to chill.

·      You’ll get morning talks on each of the 5 pillars.

·      You’ll have 30 hours of solo writing time.

·      You’ll get the freedom to withdraw and write in your room or with other people in a co-working space.

·      You’ll be able to keep odd hours if that’s your preference.

·      You’ll have some internet connection for emails and research etc, but not enough Wi-Fi to distract you from getting down to work (this week is for you and your book).

I have wanted to write for years, and been encouraged by friends and family to do so. I could never start the process for fear it would be an overwhelming, insurmountable years-long process.

Ezzie brings such a perfect balance to the process that allows me to tap into my own inner flow – where my writing comes from – while also utilizing the intellectual/rational processes associated with writing a book. I have never had anyone sit with me and make the process of diving into my book-writing feel this light.

I loved how approachable and fun Ezzie makes the whole of idea of writing a book. She has a natural lightness and freedom in her essence that comes through and inspires, and her practical and down-to-earth writing prompts helped me get clarity on why I’m writing and for whom. Thanks Ezzie! Highly recommended.
