Testimonials for Aurora Writers’ Retreats

‘A wonderfully nurturing and creative day. I found the pairing of yoga and writing very evocative. Thank you!’

Claire Wingfield, U.K.

‘Such an enriching experience with a great bunch of women.’

Lynne Dickson, U.K.

‘I love yoga but had never seen myself as at all interested in creative writing – indeed I hadn’t written anything that wasn’t for study or for work for more than 40 years, and wasn’t sure it was something I could do at all.  Noelle and Vanessa put together a wonderfully integrated day where different kinds of yoga and prompts to writing flowed together effortlessly.  And I’m not sure how, but a poem flowed out of me – leaving me delighted and refreshed that a seam of creativity had opened up. ‘

Kate Dyer, U.K.

‘I’m now going to incorporate yoga into my writing routine as I left the retreat feeling positive and relaxed. I can’t wait for the next retreat, I’ll definitely be going back.  I met a lot of welcoming lovely people who I hope to keep in touch with. We also had use of the spa at David Lloyd afterwards which rounded off a perfect day. I highly recommend Aurora Writer’s retreats.’

‘After a day at Aurora Writers Into The Light Yoga & Creative retreat in Edinburgh, I am adorned with the armour of my intrepid warrior self, the peaceful warrior and the creative warrior. No longer shall I walk this journey of literary and creative discovery on my own. No longer shall I be the lackey of self-doubt and trepidation. With my new literary companions from Aurora’s Writers’ Retreats forever by my side, fuelling me with the memories of an unforgettable and powerful session and a connectivity that stretches from Harrogate to Scotland, across to Norway and around the world, bringing together all women who have a bloody good story to tell.’

Francesca Hepton, Harrogate, U.K.

Tarot & Writing Samhuinn Retreat 2018 Testimonials

‘This retreat put me in the autumn spirit while giving me an invaluable tool for creative writing and development. The symbolism, imagery, and energy of the Tarot are a perfect vehicle for creative thinking. Noelle and Becky’s expert guidance has enabled me to use Tarot in my regular writing practice to generate new concepts and ideas, as well as develop current projects and overcome blocks. My current project already feels more nuanced and meaningful after the insight I gained from the retreat. Thank you!’

Brittany

‘I found the idea of using tarot cards in creative writing very original and inspiring. A great deck of cards could help anyone come up with new ideas for their story, or help them go over some writer’s block they might have. I recommend the tarot decks I used: one is a tarot with illustrations by Nicoletta Ceccoli, the other one is the Deviant Moon tarot by Patrick Valenza.
Noelle & Becky taught us some helpful techniques that we could use in order to improve our creative writing process. Highly recommended.’
Adriana

Autumn Writing Retreat Ireland 2018 Testimonials

‘Noelle’s course is helpful, fruitful, and satisfying. The weekend as a whole is a delight and Noelle has a way of bringing out imagination in everyone, which results in stellar writing. The setting was idyllic and the community feeling among us was warming to my soul! I wish everyone, writer or not, would take this course to experience a positive outlet to express inner creativity and to dive into their subconscious. I continued to write my short story well beyond the retreat and was motivated to keep going. A great writing event and wonderful life experience!’

Elizabeth Lee, U.S.
