Reading Retreats

"Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading." Rainer Maria Rilke

Close your eyes.


Picture yourself in your cosiest clothes, with no itinerary or To Do list, nothing but time to indulge in endless hours of reading with optional breaks to take a walk through the countryside. Suddenly someone puts a snack board in front of you then a few hours later a beautiful dinner has been prepared for you and you didn't have to lift a fact you haven't lifted a finger in days except to flip pages.


Did someone just build a campfire for after dinner conversation and dessert? What is this heavenly place?


It's a reading retreat!

What does that even mean?!


It means 2 days and nights of intentional reading time side by side with fellow readers while all your food needs, are taken care of which includes a nightly communal dinner with some structured group literary activities and discussions.
