 Guidelines for retreat participants

We want everyone to have the most positive, nurturing experience possible. In order to assure that, all participants are asked to adhere to these simple guidelines when they are at the retreat.


Show respect to your fellow participants and to the coaches at all times.


All material shared during the retreat is confidential. Discussing each other’s work outside the retreat is by express permission only.

Trigger Awareness

Memoirs often bring up difficult subjects. Try to make sure you warn others if you think the content of a discussion could be triggering.

No coaching on the side

Many of our participants have professional backgrounds in coaching or editing, and may be tempted to offer help or feedback to other participants. While this comes from an impulse of kindness, please refrain from coaching while you’re at the retreat. Feedback overload is a thing.
