Writing Down the Stars: Ritual and Writing in the Desert


With Shari Zollinger, Astrologer and Poet

& Sherene Vismaya, Astrologer and Jungian Analyst

Join us in the mystical Mars-like vortex of the Red Rocks of Moab, Utah.

The desert has always been a symbol of transformation and prime territory for looking at our own internal landscapes. Shari and Sherene are excited to offer a retreat that pairs writing and ritual in this amazing landscape with the intent of writing our way back to ourselves.


Red Cliffs lodge is about 25 minutes outside of Moab city right along the infamous and stunning Colorado River. Each one of the rooms has a small kitchenette. There’s also a pool, hot tub and workout room, plus a restaurant that opens for breakfast and dinner.
