Peace Retreat
Peace Retreat’s mission: “…to presence peace, enhance wellbeing, and inspire new possibilities for self-expression and vitality.”


Peace Retreat main house

Write wild. Jungle walks ending at the untamed ocean. Flowers as big as your head. You, barefoot and writing, writing, writing…

Join us at Peace Retreat in Playa Negra, Guanacaste, a short 20-min walk to the Pacific Ocean, for an immersive experience of discovery, creation, inspiration and building community. You will gain perspective, respite, focus, time, camaraderie and the gift of prioritizing yourself and your art.

This 7-day 6-night retreat will feature generative classes, workshops, craft talks, and one-on-one mentoring sessions as well as plenty of inspired individual writing time. All activities/classes are optional and participants can create a schedule that is supportive and nurturing to their process while finding just the right amount of motivation, guidance, and camaraderie.

Kathy Fish and Nancy Stohlman have 25 years of combined experience writing, publishing, and teaching flash fiction, and they are bringing their expertise together for this exciting event in Costa Rica! Flash fiction uses skills that translate to any genre, and this workshop is perfect for writers with all levels of experience with the form.

Spots are limited.  Register now! We look forward to having you join us.
