The Contemplative Journey of Purposeful Memoir: A Tuscan Sojourn with Jennifer Browdy PhD

May 25 @ 8:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

Sometimes you need to step away from your ordinary life to see the contours of your life journey more clearly, understand more deeply how you arrived at this present moment and set your intentions for the ever-unfurling path ahead.

The road to San Fedele, our Tuscan home.

Over the course of an idyllic week in the Tuscan countryside, we’ll work together to unlock the doors to your memoir’s purpose, focusing on the key elements of people, places and passions.

  • Who has been most important to you in your life journey so far?
  • What places have meant the most to you?
  • And what passions have swept you away at different times of your life?

Writing and sharing al fresco in Tuscany.

As you explore the luxurious Borgo San Fedele, a meticulously restored monastery set in exquisite gardens amid a classic Tuscan landscape of olive groves and vineyards, you’ll feel your spirit simultaneously enlivened and relaxed, opening to new creative possibilities.

Each day will unfold in a perfect balance of guided writing and productive sharing;

Excursions to nearby picturesque medieval towns, with plenty of time for eating delicious meals together;
