Storytelling and Life Letters retreats provide an opportunity to work in a small group to learn and grow in new ways. You'll come away with greater self-awareness and appreciation for your own story and unforgettable memories on and off the page that can be shared with loved ones and your community today and over time. Past retreats have taken place in Charleston, Santa Fe, and Asheville.


Life Letters Retreat

at The Biltmore Estate

April 10 - 14, 2024

We are partnering with Writing Workshops once again to present an impactful retreat in historic Asheville, North Carolina. The Life Letters retreat is geared toward people of all backgrounds who care about sharing what matters most—family and personal lore, deeply held values, life lessons, and the intent and stories behind the causes they care about—as a way to live with greater intention and meaning now and in the future. Note that the life letter, which can also be called an ethical will or legacy letter, is not about facing mortality. It is about living with greater awareness and purpose, which is why sharing it with family and communities is cause for celebration.  

Starting at $2995 per person

Bespoke Business Retreats 

Work with us to create a bespoke retreat for your board, staff, clients, or donors. We work with clients in a variety of ways—through private coaching, in groups that are part of a cohort (e.g. families or legacy donors at a foundation), as well as keynotes and training programs for retreats or conferences.

"Nancy's gift to the world is allowing us to share our stories and elevate how we tell these stories. She is a true empath and encourages all of her students to express themselves without judgement. I adore working with her!"

"Nancy sees things in each student that makes them see something purposeful in themselves and one another, leading to real growth. Anyone who works with her is lucky to come under her spell."
