CUBA WRITING RETREAT
This retreat is designed for travelers looking for culture and adventure while learning a new approach to writing and a mindful and aware life. Together with writing teacher Sarah Sennott Cyr, we will move through Havana blending prompted writing sessions and meditation with the cultural immersion and insider access that Otros Ojos is known for.
Live in comfortable unique residences in the Vedado neighborhood near theaters, music venues and restaurants that we visit. Write and observe in a culture that balances space and intensity in equal measure. See concerts and art studios that will give you new perspectives outside of your writing practice. Spend a morning reflecting on writing ritual in the house where Hemingway wrote some of his most beloved books. As we prepare to go to Cuba, we will read short books, poems and excerpts from a range of Cuban writers and those greatly influenced by this magical place.
