Several years ago when I endeavored to become a writer, it started with my personal memoir about my life’s story and transitional periods. Then it evolved into a book manuscript, titled Over 50 Starting Over Transition, Passion, Transformation. Having spent more than a year, developing a writing style, and living in Houston, Texas, I gradually started to lose my passion, creativity, and focus, I was “stuck”! Shortly thereafter I retired from corporate business and moved to Costa Rica’s Southern Caribbean. Living between the ocean and tropical rain forest, the powers of nature began to take root. Clear and clean air, tropical climate, sights, and sounds of nature, and surrounded by lush green vegetation and trees. Within days my body, mind, and spirit were integrated without distraction.
My passion and zest for writing had returned, I had such a sense of presence and deep relaxation. After a more than thirty-year professional career, my physical, emotional and psychological health, and wellbeing were once again in harmony. Deanna Poehlman, Co-author and I completed and self-published the book on Amazon, in less than one year. A proper and inspiring environment is critical to the writing process, Costa Rica provided such an environment. The book led to the creation of Second Prime Renaissance Retreats SPR, all related to the health and wellbeing, for people seeking either a new life’s path and experience, or to improve and transform their existing path, as a writer and life itself.
SPR first annual Writers’ Salon, is partnered with Samasati Wellness and Yoga Retreats, located in Costa Rica’s Southern Caribbean. A stunningly beautiful and private nature refuge, atop of a mountain, with both primary and secondary rainforest, with ocean view. The setting is perfect for writing, relaxing and adventure, no matter your level of writing; professional, novice, published or unpublished, SPR Writers’ Salon is for you.
