Private retreats with Kay at the Writing House in Hastings on Hudson, NY

Get out of your house, out of your head, and let me help you to move energy into your creative project.

One-day retreat with Kay Prevallet at the Rose Writing House in Hastings on Hudson, NY.

Are you feeling bogged down by the pressures of your daily life, wanting to take time for yourself but also needing a little help to get your energy moving in the right direction? If you’re working on a project but feeling stuck, give yourself the gift of taking time out for yourself to structure around what you want/need to do. And feel supported by a poet and practitioner of the somatic healing arts.

How you might spend your time:

Arrive anytime between 1pm and 4pm, check into your room and meet Kay for a private session to help you center into your intention for the weekend.

You can spend the rest of the afternoon journaling, doing homework from the session, hiking in the nearby woods, going to a coffee shop in town, or taking your dinner to the Hudson River to watch the sun set.

At 8pm, join Kay for an evening fire ritual to help center and ground your creative practice.

The next morning, Kay will invite you to a private session which will help hold the space for a full day of making, resting, dreaming, editing, doodling.

Check out is flexible, until around 8 pm.

We all need a little help every once in a while. Reach out if this idea of a supported retreat appeals to you.

Kay’s garden and permaculture of the mind here:



This retreat was freeing and empowering. I’m amazed at how much happened in terms of my often-stuck poetry practice. In such a brief, rich, intense space in time. I am hugely grateful for the safety of the workshop and for Kristin’s deep wisdom, permission, generosity, and guidance. I feel like an enormous shift in my poetry practice has taken place, and I am so excited to go home and keep following the energy Kristin has created.

Kasey Jueds, Author of Keeper

Kristin’s retreat was unlike anything I have experienced before both inside and outside my M.F.A. Her depth of knowledge about poetry and trance techniques have resulted in her own unique mind, heart, and soul-opening tools for her students. Not only did I write different and exciting new poems, I was given tools for personal and creative transformation.
