Temenos: Turn to Autumn

Daylong Writing Retreat

as

20 Miles from Amherst, Worlds Away from Everyday

Temenos.11The experience of Temenos Retreat Center begins with a slow walk on a dirt road. A 20-minute path through the woods of Mount Mineral leads to the retreat entrance and to Outdoor Voice, the third in our series of local, day-long retreats.

Once a health spa known for its mineral springs, Temenos was founded in 1973 to support healing, renewal, and a simpler way of life.  The center currently serves as home to two stewards, a pond, salamanders, birds, numerous four-footed creatures, miles of trails, four cabins – and a meeting lodge.

And as September can be hot, chilly, or anywhere in between, the lodge’s screen porch and trusty wood stove make just about any day a good day for writing.  Simple comforts: an aspect of Slow living.

Think Hand Pump and Fresh Spring Water

Foregoing electricity, life at Temenos takes a definite turn towards Slow.  Alternate ways to draw water, cook, refrigerate and provide light shape the rhythms and movements of the day, offering new perspectives and outbreaks of spontaneous, deep breathing.

Tap stories of the everyday and the extraordinary 

Join us for a day of exploration and skill building in the company of fellow writers.
