Author, Amanda Viviers created this personal retreat writing practice over 20 years of asking the same questions and it has been used by thousands of people globally.
Dear Future Self will give you context for this private journaling retreat process she has developed.
Dear Future Self includes:
- 60 pages of journaling questions and space to write.
- This is not a physical product it delivers digitally.
This end of year retreat process has been refined and published for the last 6 years by Amanda Viviers. It is an annual publication.
“Each year I seem to stumble and fall into the space between Christmas and New Year. I’m exhausted, I am over family gatherings and even the thought of another thing to tick off the task list brings out my “rolling-eyes emoji”.
During this stumbling season, I make space for an afternoon with myself, and I retreat. Away from my family, social media and I step towards possibility. I find a cafe, order coffee and a slice of cake and I breathe. It’s an opportunity to walk the beach and pray softly. Thanking God for the year that has passed, and I start to let go of disappointment.”
A retreat is defined as a “period of time set aside to reflect, pray, meditate or study.”
This book is designed to be a perfect compendium for a self-guided personal retreat. Use this hashtag to see others taking a day this New Year to retreat also #FutureRetreating
*This is an annual process that has been publishing for 7 years, each download has different articles and creative exercises but some of the questions are the same because of the cylical nature of the process. Other publications with similar questions and different articles Reflect, Begin Again, Pause, New Days and Gentle Rhythms.
