Writing Retreat for Nurses

Join us for a writing retreat in the beautiful, inspiring space of Villa Pauline in Mendham, NJ

September 22-24, 2023

4pm Friday to 1pm Sunday

"I will write my way to wellness."

Spend a relaxing, fun, and inspiring weekend with nursing colleagues in a historic mansion as we use the written word to:

Unleash creativity
Expand self-expression
Develop your authentic voice
Share nursing stories
Restore your soul


About the location: 

Amid the beauty of over 100 acres of spacious lawns, gardens, walking paths, magnificent trees and woodlands, within the hills of Morris County, between the boroughs of Mendham and Bernardsville, lies Villa Pauline Retreat House. Initially, the house was the Cromwell Mansion, a large 44-room Georgian house dating back to 1892, on the estate of Seymour Cromwell, a president of the New York Stock Exchange (1921-1924), his wife, Agnes and their four children. Villa Pauline is reminiscent of “St. Francis Academy” in the vintage movie: The Trouble With Angels. When I first visited the villa I knew I had to create an event for nurses there! 

What we’ll be doing:

Writing, listening, discussing, laughing, and relaxing in safe space shared by kindred souls.
We’ll be using writing prompts, themes, and activities to create, explore, and excavate.

We write to heal

We write to create

We write to release

We write to manifest

We write to find out voice

We write to express ourselves

We write to teach

We write to leave a legacy

We write to live
