Writing to Heal: The Next Chapter - Women of Purpose


Hosted by Christine Duke | La Posada Resort and Spa, Santa Fe, NM | 19-22 July 2021

A 3-day empowering workshop for the intentionally minded woman seeking purpose after stepping out of the daily tasks of motherhood. Flip the script of the empty nest and make it a time of renewal and awakening.

If any of these thoughts resonate with you, this retreat is for you:

👉 I have spent my whole adult life raising children.  What is next for me?  I’ve lost my purpose.
👉 I need to find a new direction for my life but I’m unsure of how to do that.
👉 I miss my children and need to fill that void by finding a new focus and purpose in life.
👉 I long for a quiet place to escape so I can organize my thoughts and set new goals.
👉 I feel scattered and need direction on how to zero in my thoughts and find my zone of excellence.
👉 I am ready to launch the new me by surrounding myself with like minded people, in a safe supportive space.
👉 I want to connect with women who are experiencing these same feelings.
👉 I am ready to live the life I put on hold and make my dream a reality.

Learn how to find your purpose by zeroing in on your zone of excellence by finding your true strengths. Unpack what is holding you back from realizing your potential. Take action to bust through the barriers because the obstacle is the way to success!  Write smart goals and write the story of your future self. Dream big ladies!

Because it’s time for you to take care of you ❤️

You’ve spent so much time and energy taking care of your family that it is now time to take care of you!  Perhaps it is just time for a career change or time to step out of your comfort zone.

Meet your Coach Christine Duke

Christine is a certified transformational life coach, wife, mother of four, grandma, teacher, aspiring writer, avid journaler, national writing project teacher-consultant, compassionate and empathetic soul.

She discovered the healing power of the written word during an intense period of sadness and confusion.  Guided journaling helped her to excavate her feelings, release her pain, and begin her healing process. Making this transformational journey by herself ignited a deep desire to help women through their pain and motivated her to become a certified transformational life coach.

For the past three years, Christine’s writing to heal your heart retreats have provided structured, safe, and nurturing environments with gentle guidance to help women find the path of healing, clarity, purpose, and personal growth. Through journaling and guided discussions, attendees master the skill of intentionality and awaken their healing potential.

Graduates leave these transformational retreats with goals and clear action plans to continue healing and transitioning into their next life phases.

Here’s what they’re are saying about Christine:

Barb Crawford I have had the opportunity to attend several ‘Writing To Heal’ workshops led by Christine Duke. During these events, Christine expertly guided us through writing prompts, one-on-one discussions and crafts to help in the process of healing emotional wounds. I would highly recommend others participating in any of Christine’s workshops
Shandra Smith The ‘Writing to Heal Your Heart’ workshops were a true Godsend to me. I have been through a few traumatic events in my life that have left me emotionally vulnerable. I have always written as a means of healing and reflection, but the workshops taught me how to more specifically channel my writing towards specific goals in mind. I also learned that I am not alone in my struggles; I have met so many other great women in the process
Suzanne I have had the pleasure of attending several of these retreats! It is always a supportive, comforting environment that gives you permission to address your needs for a change! I always finish feeling refreshed and empowered, looking forward to my next opportunity to attend!

Are you ready to embrace your new life direction?
