Day Retreat – Rewrite Your Story: Journal Therapy to Change Your Narrative

October 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Join us for this afternoon retreat in the lush wooded gardens of the South Coast Guest House.

Journal Therapy is an intimate, healing practice of using guided writing prompts to connect with self and create understanding and perspective around our innermost thoughts and feelings. Led by transformational coach and independent author Cat Skinner, the writing exercises in this retreat are carefully curated to offer participants the following:

  • Deep awareness of core personal values
  • Challenging the self-talk that keeps us from making change
  • Silencing the inner-critic
  • Nurturing creativity
  • Engaging imagination
  • Cultivating self-compassion and moving through shame
  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Articulating purpose and passion so you can answer your heart’s call


  • Creative writing as a means to express emotion
  • Managing where we invest our energy
  • Stream of consciousness writing to create mental space

Each participant will be gifted a hand-crafted journal by local Niagara artist Samantha Nan plus an individual snack pack (with plant-based options available) to nourish and recharge over our break.

Space is limited to 10 participants, so register early to secure your spot.
