As part of Pashmina's quest to find the perfect sanctuary for writer's to unwind, two individuals who own, Merchant House, have invited her to host a 10 day writer's retreat in Sri Lanka in January / February 2019. Author's will get to experience the tranquility and serenity of living and being pampered in a villa for 10 days. Tours around Sri Lanka, a safari, turtle hatcheries, massages, excellent home cooked meals from the private kitchen, and yoga was the perfect escape for Pashmina when she visited in August.
A 4 bedroom villa holds the magical qualities for an intimate 10 day writing workshop, with an additional workshop host and guest author. Participants will experience writing in a peaceful environment while honing in on their creativity. The annual Galle Literary Festival will be hosted during the time of the retreat. Tickets for selected events will be provided for author's to take a walk around Galle Fort and experience art, literature and culture. Some reputable names in the literary world have visited the festival in the past.
Calmness and being in direct contact to nature gave Pashmina, the author, a chance to unwind, relax and release her writer's block for her next upcoming book "Am I the One," which is scheduled for launch early next year.
After writing The Cappuccino Chronicles trilogy, Pashmina knew that the flow of writing was locked inside her. The trip to Sri Lanka provided a space as well as healing which opened the doors to creativity, strength and an abundance of ideas.
Participants who are interested in our retreat, please contact Pashmina on her email. firstname.lastname@example.org for further enquiries. This retreat is an exclusive experience full of adventure, calmness and information. Writers will get to experience the beauty of Sri Lanka while attending daily 3 hour writing, editing, design and storyboard workshops every morning after breakfast. Meals and accommodation as well as a Dawn Safari Tour will be provided, along with yoga, massages and tickets to selected events at the literary festival.
Pashmina also took her family to a Special Needs School in Matara Village to give back to the community who refreshed her senses. Gratitude and Service definitely go hand in hand!
Sri Lanka, known as "The Holy Land," served its purpose for an international best seller, as well as an author whose budding creativity was allowed to bloom. Don't miss out on our retreat coming up next year. The path to success is never straight, but it can undeniably be as colourful as we choose.
