Waking without Words
June 15–18, 2023
What word, what act, was it we thought did not matter?
Drala Mountain Center is a perfect place for writing, with its hidden places, big views, and quiet atmosphere. The focus of the weekend is to support the practice of writing by listening to your memory body, present moments, and the land. You’ll practice gentle Yoga, playful movement, and writing prompts that inspire your imagination and creative heart. Opening your senses, you’ll meditate and walk outside. You’ll write outside too, searching for the perfect writing nooks on the land. You’ll read and share poems and prose, lists and notes, and be read to. You’ll return from the weekend enthusiastic to include a writing and moving practice in your day to day living.
The published authors we’ll read will be primarily women, people of color, as well as those who identify as LGBTQI+.
The nature of this retreat encourages simple affirmative feedback and no critiques.

“Katharine was wonderful, creating a safe nurturing tone and establishing community among us. She was both teacher/guide and fellow student herself – a powerful connection. She shared herself with us, and in doing so allowed us to share of ourselves.”
“Katharine is as real and honest as it gets. She taught me so much, and my personal Zen practice and understanding of life grow immensely during my time with her.”
Not every retreat teacher is the same! As you can tell from the comments above, the teacher makes a big difference in your overall retreat experience. Drala Mountain Center is honored to host Katharine’s retreats. She compliments the sacred land with her presence.

- Gain a rich understanding of how to practice Yoga and Meditation safely and wisely whether practicing alone or in a group.
You’ve experienced joy and health, pain and loss. You’ve tested your physical limits, and have recovered from surgeries. You’ve traveled, shared insights, and cared for others. Now it’s time to attend to your body as it is today.
