Voices All-Inclusive 5-Day Writers Retreat
May 15 - 20, 2020
Taos Goji Eco Lodge - Northern New Mexico
Become inspired like other great writers at Taos Goji Eco Lodge...
Taos Goji Eco Lodge and Farm is nestled in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. We have charming, historic log cabins for rent in close proximity to Taos, NM (11 miles) and the Taos Ski Valley and Red River (30 minutes). These fully furnished vacation homes are situated on a 40 acre goji berry farm. The cabins are surrounded by national forest with a great view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Our location is a perfect event venue to hold small retreats, reunions and weddings with a 500 sq ft lodge space and a 1600 sq ft open barn.
Some of the cabins were built at the beginning of last century, originally used by sheepherders and were once the center of town. The English writer Aldous Huxley lived and wrote in one of the cabins and also built an outhouse that is still intact. We found watercolors by writer, poet and painter D.H. Lawrence as well as letters between himself and his wife Frieda in the attic. Elizabeth Kubler Ross, a pioneer in psychiatry and spiritual teacher Ram Dass has also stayed here. We raise organic goji berries and various breeds of chickens. We also have goats and alpacas. Fresh veggies and eggs are available seasonally.
We are located in the countryside and city slickers may be dismayed by the lack of streetlights and the quietude at night. Our internet connection gets spotty during rain storms and snow. Depending on your cell phone provider you may have to drive to the post office or up the road to get reception. (We have a landline to enable connection anywhere in the U.S.) We’re not a motel or hotel: these are clean, rustic country cabins, perfectly suited to creative individuals who desire a break from the hustle and bustle of civilization.
Aldous Huxley's Cabin
Our historic cabins were built at the turn of the last century. All of them have been renovated and have a kitchen and bathroom. Most of our casitas and cabins are heated with wood fire stoves and air pump units. We hope to install solar heating as well.
The eco lodge is part of a recycling program and we use only use eco friendly cleaners, dish and laundry detergents. The Eco lodge’s water comes from four deep wells, fed by mountain aquafirs.

The Voices Retreat was a once in a lifetime experience for me. I did not consider myself a writer, but have always loved hearing and working through the power of sharing your story. I believe there are no accidents in life and I met Chloe for a reason that is unfolding as we speak. She has introduced me to a craft of how to tell my story that can help others through connecting within my mind, body, and soul. I was intimidated, nervous, but excited to learn from her intuitive writing style. I left nourished, confident, and accomplished with the tools to complete my story and share with the world. The environment provided including the support of amazing nutrition, restorative yoga, healing hands, and an incredible videographer team is the icing on the cake! If you are considering an opportunity to share your story this is the retreat for you! We were a group of women of all ages, backgrounds, and variety of stories to share but all connected at heart center. Thank you Chloe for this opportunity that forever has changed my life.

Currently making a global impact with readers from all around the world. Chloe’s unusual life of growing up deeply connected to nature and spirit has led her to a unique process of intuitively connecting to writing. The writing of her memoir became the foundation for her business and empowered her to become a warrior for helping others to find the truth in their story. She knows firsthand about moving through pain and finding joy on the other side, by embracing one’s authentic self and finding the power in their voice!
As a mentor and facilitator of the writing process, Chloe is unlike anyone in the industry. She combines her experience of growing up in the wilderness with her training in mindfulness tools and literary writing techniques to deliver a powerful process of self-transformation and empowerment through writing. She helps her people move from fear to courage, and from doubt to confidence, in mastering the dance between craft and intuition.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a writer already?
You don't have to be a writer to do this project, but must have a desire to learn to write.
With my gifts I will help you unearth your story.
Why should I invest in the VOICES Intuitive Writing Retreat?
It's about Transformation...not Information.
Get your story done in a timely manner

Become a part of the movement that begins at the retreat, getting clear on your dream state of being and learning how to use your story to better your life and the life of others.
How far into "living my purpose" & being my true self do I have to be?
You don't have to be completely at the top of your game or fully living your purpose...
We will all be at different stages
Your purpose might be motherhood, just getting started with a passion you love, or being the CEO of your own company, it's about getting a message out that matters not the credential of what you do
You need to be in the experience and connected to what matters to you
What are the benefits of an all-inclusive package that includes publishing?
It's challenging to write your story, doing it with a one of a kind facilitator of the writing process is invaluable
It's hard to find good publishing. (This is an understatement! It is almost impossible to find good publishing these days that includes cover to cover excellence and launch support)
Finding an all-inclusive package that can help you get your message out, in well written form, professionally edited and published with a team of women behind you is priceless!
If you have a larger book in you to write, this program can be a great stepping-stone to tell the fundamental story of your journey that “your people” will want to hear. You can hint at tidbits of the larger story to help them connect to your bigger book that is coming.
And if you’re not planning to write a book, VOICES is a great opportunity to tell this invaluable piece of your story that will speak directly to your people. If you have written a book, VOICES is a great add on to building a much larger platform with your message. We will position you and your book as an established author with a message in your bio for voices.
Launching a book with a known author, a skilled and versed publisher, and a powerful group of women is priceless!
My thirty years of writing in journals, creating poems and healing from childhood traumas was my decision to take the road less travelled to save my life. Scott Peck’s book was my first awareness that I may be able to understand my reality.
Unknowingly, I have been writing my story of finding my voice for thirty years. I was unaware my journey would lead me to read “The Soulful Child, connect with Chloe Gallaway and make a very huge decision to attend her first “Women Who Are Finding Their Voice” writers retreat. Chloe’s life experiences and her ongoing determination to be a genuine vessel for other women’s emergence from darkness into the light makes her unique and special to me. Her writing tools for writing my memoir vary from what we learned we will author for Voices at the writers retreat. Nurturing micro-nutrient meals, early morning yoga (for those who wanted to participate), serene New Mexico ranchland that hosted the largest labyrinth I have ever walked, three daily writing classes holding time to write filled our entire day. Five amazing women from early 40’s to myself at 76, wrote, read, laughed and cried to support one another. We were often led by Spirit to grow and enhance our Warrior Woman Voices. You will read our stories, as well as those of Chloe’s Sedona Writer’s Retreat event being held in January 2019. This book, (which will be published May 2019), will contain our individual story written in a 20-30 page condensed theme and outcome. You don’t have to be an acknowledged writer. If you have a desire to share your story, join our voices in January.
