Feeling Uninspired? This Writer's Retreat in Tagaytay Might Be the Answer

Hurry, because slots are limited.

(SPOT.ph) Different kinds of writers have different kinds of "writing rituals." Some would pace back and forth while in the middle of writing a gut-wrenching movie script. Others would clean their desks before finalizing a poem. Some would wake up at 4 a.m. and start typing away random ideas. Like a car that needs to be started with jumper cables, writing—for some—needs to be jumpstarted to let the creative juices flowing. Another way to do this is to sign up for workshops or retreats. Take for example Inkling, an all-women writing retreat from February 2 to 4, 2018 at Villa Sena in Tagaytay.



For a workshop fee of P25,000, participants can enjoy tasty meals, some peace and quiet in chilly Tagaytay, and writing sessions—particularly on journaling and life coaching. There are also tarot-reading sessions which can help you uncover what you need to know about yourself and be more open to what your gut tells you. The slots are limited to 10 to make the most out of the three-day writing lockdown. Joining you during the retreat are Chinggay Labrador who has been reading the tarot since she was 18 and using this discipline to fuel her writing, and Aurora M. Suarez who is a certified life and career coach.




“This retreat will allow you to listen to your intuition again,” promises Inkling. In this fast-paced world, it’s getting harder and harder to listen to our gut feel or kutob. Filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik calls this the duwende, while scriptwriter Ricky Lee calls this the tao sa loob. Whatever it is, this inner voice is what helps us bare the truth and come up with the most genuine string of words.


Inkling is from February 2 to 4, 2018 at Villa Sena, Ligaya Drive, Tagaytay, Cavite. Workshop fee is P25,000. To register, visit Inkling's webpage.
