Touchstone Retreats offers you the chance to immerse yourself in the creative process of sharing your stories through art and writing. We facilitate weekend art and writing retreats at Alton L. Collins Retreat Center in Estacada, Oregon twice a year, in the fall and in the spring.
We also facilitate retreats for organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest. We provide specialized programing for staff retreats, spiritual and meditation programs, and community groups including caregivers, educators, counselors, artists, writers, and social justice activists.
We invite you to:
- Take a break from your responsibilities and enjoy the opportunity for self-reflection and creativity.
- Allow yourself to be nurtured and nourished, supporting the process of regeneration and renewal.
- Embark on your own journey of transformation, stepping more fully into your personal power and expressing your authentic voice and vision.
- Share insight, inspiration, and wisdom through deepening community connection.
We honor writing and art as a creative process that belongs to all people. Each person’s voice is unique and of value. All writing, art and creativity is welcome here. No previous experience is necessary, just an openness to exploration.
