Join me in January 2023 for a 5-day all-inclusive retreat to write, dream, and be inspired. This is an opportunity to LIVE your DREAMS and begin or finish your writing project in my stunning Santa Fe vacation home, nestled on 5-acres of pinon, juniper, and cedar. Invite the creative spirit... walk the labyrinth, join a supportive writing mastermind session, take in the beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces, and be nourished with homemade meals inspired by the local terroir. Casa de Sueños awaits.
“There is something magical about Santa Fe. The energy stimulates you so you are more creative. I know I was. I showed up to Casa de Sueños with no ideas for a new novel and left with five full characters sketches and an entire storyline.”
-Mona Alvardo Frazier, upcoming book Strong Women Grow Here
Are you working on a book project? Whether you are well on your way or ready to begin, Casa de Sueños in Santa Fe offers a potent platform to dive in to your creative project with all your heart, body and spirit.
Walk the labyrinth at Casa de Sueños under the glow of the rising moon.
The retreat offers the following:
-Your stunning private room and bathroom in Casa de Sueños, my Santa Fe vacation home. First to book gets first choice of rooms. The spacious Adobe home sits on 5-acres of cedar, juniper, and piñon. It is gorgeous from the inside out. The house offers many places to write, think, and dream. The house has a labyrinth and its own mountain in the backyard for short hikes (it takes about 15 minutes to hike to the top).

-All your meals of mostly plant-based meals will be cooked by me. The meals will feature organic ingredients and local baked goods (can someone say Clafoutis) to showcase the regional dishes and flavors. Plus I will cook up a recipe or two from my book EAT LESS WATER. This is all served in the gorgeous kitchen and dining room with its nearly 200-year-old dining table from France.
The Kitchen is what sold me on this house.
The dining table is a treasure found in one of the many antique shops in Santa Fe. It was built in the 1800's in France to knead bread!
-Sunset biodynamic wine or tea daily on the side patio with a vegetarian charcuterie board.

Most writers who receive this link know me personally, but if you received this from a friend or a friend of a friend here is a little background on the "me" in the description.
My name is Florencia Ramirez, the author of Eat Less Water: The Solution to Water Shortages is in the Kitchen (Red Hen Press), named by Kirkus Reviews as the Top 100 Best Books in 2019.I received my master's at the University of Chicago’s School of Public Policy. I've been interviewed by NPR, American Public Media, KCRW’s Good Food, New York’s WPNA, KPFA, and Entertainment Weekly and appeared on CBS and KTLA Morning News. I won the 6th Gift of Freedom Genre Finalist in Creative Nonfiction by A Room of Her Own Foundation (AROHO), the Environment Hero Award, and recently awarded a Latino Leadership award for establishing the Pesticide-Free Soil Project.
During the retreat, you will find me working on my current book project, How to Eat Less Water in 30 Days, and my podcast, with the same name. My BIG goal is to build an Eat Less Water Movement.
I have the honor and privilege of calling two places home, Casa de Sueños, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and a beach house near Oxnard, California with my husband of 25 years and three teenage children.
