Private Cyprus writer's retreat

Looking for a retreat that is

intensive — personal — one of a kind?

Because you are

ready to do what it takes

to become the writer you were always meant to be?

Then it might be time for you to join me in Cyprus.

What do I offer?

A safe space in an inspiring environment to

1) get out of your own way

2) go deep and answer all those questions you haven’t even started asking yourself

3) finally be honest about your dreams and desires

Why Cyprus?

In February 2019, I left the Netherlands to settle in the Larnaca Bay area. Ever since falling in love with this wonderful Mediterranean island two years ago, I knew it was a place I couldn’t keep to myself.

Here, inspiration comes easily, without effort, and nothing feels too much to handle. Here, it all makes sense, it all adds up, it’s all clear. Here, I’m not in my own way.

Of course, I can’t promise that Cyprus will do the same for you, but there’s only one way to find out, isn’t there?

A retreat includes

Daily 1:1 sessions

Prompts and exercises to help you dig in, gain clarity, and release any limiting thoughts

Support where and when needed

Time to write, process, and enjoy the island

Throughout your retreat, I will show up for you in whichever way you need. Some writers will need my skills and insights as an editor, some as a writing coach, while others will benefit most from the intuitive healing I offer. Some will need a combination. These retreats are here for you, and I will do whatever I can to help you find your way back to you. All that’s left for you to do is show up for yourself.

Would you rather come out here with your writing buddy or co-writer?

That’s entirely possible, too. Just scroll down for the fees.

Questions and answers

Do I have to pay the entire amount in one go?

No, the fee is paid in two instalments. A 50% deposit is due within a week of booking. The second instalment is due a week prior to arrival.

What happens if I have to cancel?

The deposit is non-refundable, but may be applied to a future retreat if the retreat is cancelled at least two weeks prior to the starting date. If cancellation occurs within two weeks of the starting date, the deposit will be forfeited.

* A ‘weekend’ is any period of four days, three nights. A ‘midweek’ is any period of five days, four nights. Dates are in agreement and depend on availability.

** Fees exclude accommodation, flights, and meals, although I will make sure your fridge is stocked. There are multiple Airbnbs in my area; if you need any help picking the right one, don’t hesitate to involve me.
