With Annette Szproch and Megan Barnhard
September 15 - 21, 2022
Step into ease and flow as you birth your soul book among the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
… feeling forced or heavy— like it’s an obligation you know you’ll procrastinate from
… waiting another 1 or 5 or 10 years until you “have more time”
… having to stick to a rigid structure that cramps your creative style and sucks your energy
We’re Annette and Megan, and we believe in making the journey of writing your book just as joyful as the experience of sharing it with the world.
Annette is a Somatic Soul Guide & Publisher and Megan is an Intuitive Writing Coach & Story Magician. Together, we help you activate your ideas, your energy, and your flow so you birth your soul book with ease.
Having worked with dozens of authors, we know that successfully writing, publishing, and promoting a book all comes down to one surprising thing:
How much you’re enjoying the process.
If you’re not enjoying the journey, when it comes time to publish and promote your book, it’s going to feel heavy.
Maybe you’ve already experienced this heaviness in your writing journey as…
starting and stopping several times
feeling stalled and uninspired
worrying that you won’t finish
beating yourself up for not being further along by now
Time to let it all go, Love.
When you detach from the outcome and enjoy the journey, you open up to play and possibility.
You step into massive self-trust, and you’re simply present to the experience.
This is when the really big shifts take place. Those “out of the blue” lightning bolts of inspiration hit. Those full-body-chills ideas start to flow.
You feel so clear about what to write and how to allow it all to unfold.
And that’s when you experience powerful results.
✅ Accommodations in Elohee’s tranquil, modern cottages.
✅ All meals prepared with love and intention from locally-sourced ingredients.
✅ The option to purchase a massage or reiki session in Elohee’s luxurious spa
Imagine a week of tranquility and possibility.
No dishes to wash, kids or partner to look after, or emails to take you away from your big work.
Instead, you awake to birdsong and the light of the sun coming up over the mountains. You step from your cottage into Mother Nature’s welcoming arms, and stroll along a quiet path to a healthful and delicious breakfast. With no clean up afterward.
Throughout your day, you receive the support and guidance to allow your book to take shape. You’re invited into rituals and writing practices that unleash your creativity. And also given plenty of downtime to write, read, reflect, meditate, move your body, and reconnect to your spirit.
Your evenings are filled with a sense of calm satisfaction, knowing that you’re here, doing the work, following the calling of your soul and what she wants to create.
This is your invitation to create from your most joyous place! To come on retreat with your creativity and allow her to whisper all her best ideas in your ear.
We’re here to support you on the journey so you have what you need to move forward.
It’s just up to you to say YES to you, YES to your book, YES to your dream.

“I’d been dragging my feet to complete my memoir re: working with babies for over 30 years to release residual birth trauma. This Sacred Storytellers Retreat allowed me to pick up my feet and dance toward the finish line!! Such wonderful tools were shared by Megan and Annette Maria through meditation, education, investigation of the things that hold us back. Highly recommend this dynamic duo to help YOU complete YOUR soul’s book!” – Melinda M.
“It can be hard to find a retreat experience that is equal parts relaxation, spiritual growth, personal growth, good company, and good food. The Sacred Storyteller Retreat hit all of these marks. All while fostering the perfect space and inspiration to write. Annette and Megan were a great team in helping make it all happen. Annette is generous with her spiritual gifts and is wonderful at leading ceremonies and meditation. Megan brought with her writing expertise and crafted a space where it felt safe to get vulnerable. I am already looking forward to the next one!” – Colleen R.
