Course Description:

Free from the distractions and hustle-bustle of daily life, join us for restorative, inspired days at Cave Creek Ranch’s woodlands and grassy meadows beside the Chiricahua Mountains in Southeastern Arizona. The stunning rhyolite cliffs above the canyon will watch over us as we write our hearts out and in and back out again! Plenty of time for contemplation and companionship, and opportunities to wander the more than 200 miles of hiking trails or sit quietly by the creek observing as many as 400 species of birds. Lodging, all gourmet meals, and the workshops included.

Deposit: $850 (single room)
