Little Women Writing Pilgrimage
Join “Common Ground” for our first pilgrimage in which we will treat writing as a sacred practice. We will spend these days asking ourselves one key question; what role do we want writing play in our lives? We will ask this question of ourselves, of each other and of Louisa May Alcott’s classic work of genius, Little Women.

Each day will include time for writing, discussion, spiritual practices, walks and lectures. This trip will include a visit to Walden Pond and Louisa May Alcott’s former house, Orchard House, where she wrote Little Women. It will also include guest lecturers who will join us and share their expertise. In addition, each day, we will gather for writing workshops, spiritual writing practices, and discussions of craft. We hope you can join us.

You can read more about it here: or email us at

Ongoing – Every Sunday, 11am to 2pm
The Colonial Inn, Concord, MA
