Upcoming Retreats

I offer a variety of custom retreat packages based out of the Trillium Wilderness Community and Retreat Center near Ashland, Oregon. Each guest also gets a limited edition, signed copy of my new book as well as the ebook & audiobook version.

QUESTIONS? Contact me and we can figure out a date and itinerary that works for you 🙂

Retreat Packages

WHEN TO VISIT: Every season at Trillium is stunning! Summer is hot and the winter gets a light dusting of snow. It rains quite infrequently from June-October so that’s generally the best time to visit.

GETTING HERE IS EASY: The closest airport is Medford (MFR) and has direct flights from LA & SF. Airport pickup / dropoff at MFR can be arranged if desired.

Weekend Wilderness Retreat

Join me for a two night campout at our beautiful property, featuring open meadows, old growth forest, a secluded river and 30 miles of trails spread across 5000 acres PLUS a custom day adventure! All locally sourced food & drinks included. It’s BYO tent …although I have some extras too!

    • $149 per person.

Weekend Writer’s Retreat

Join me and other writers for a three day writer’s retreat at Trillium during which we’ll learn techniques to craft short stories and each get to share what we write.

Campers / RVs are also welcome with advance notice. If you need to arrive or depart a day early that is fine 🙂

Upcoming Retreat Options


I visited Trillium for a weekend retreat and Dougie planned a full on soul journey for me. We learned to find inspiration from nature as we explored the mountains and rivers adjacent to the property. Dougie’s also a great cook! I returned to Los Angeles feeling more grounded, like I’d found a forgotten wild side of my humanity. I’ll be back…
