We Our People!
and the nice things they say...
Before the retreat, I was a little bit nervous. I didn't know what to expect. Lauren and Kerry created such a warm and caring environment. Over the course of the day, I felt more connected to myself than I have for a very long time. I would recommend this retreat for all women wanting to explore themselves, connect with themselves, and give themselves LOVE.
AMAZING!!! I'm so happy I took the day and attended this retreat! It was a fantastic way to reconnect with my writing, practice some yoga, and immerse myself in a wonderful, creative, supportive environment. This writing retreat arrived at a perfect time for me, even though I didn't know I needed it. I would highly recommend it!
The whole day was delightful! Enough calm, enough inspiration, enough restore, enough motivation, enough creativity, enough aaahhhh!!!
This retreat gave me a day to myself. No technology. No noise. Quiet, relaxing yoga and writing prompts that inspired some unexpected ideas! Thanks to Lauren and Kerry for a safe space with a new group of writers. And, yes, we are all writers!
What a safe and gentle way to approach your inner writer. Thoughtful, creative space provided. Kerry and Lauren are wonderful.
Lauren’s poetry workshop taught me how to write poetry. I had dabbled, but never tried to write a real poem before. The exercises we completed helped me get into the right mindset and make new connections to the form in ways I had never thought I would be able to. I left with the knowledge of what makes a poem and how to write one. When I went home from the workshop I was inspired to write a poem that was then long-listed for the 2019 CBC poetry prize( Apartment 402). I credit this class for my ability to write a poem strong enough to be considered for this prize.
Kerry is genuine, full of love, funny, giving, and wishes the best for everybody. When you are in one of her classes you don't feel like everybody's looking at you to see if you're doing it wrong. She makes such an atmosphere you feel like you're just part of her tribe. Since that first class I have gotten to know her much better. She is a super human being. I would highly recommend if given a chance you attend any one of her yoga classes. Just love her!!!
The balance of useful instruction, expert advice, and hands-on writing was perfect. Lauren created an inspiring space where I felt safe sharing my work.
Kerry's classes not only work wonders on your body but they are also healing mentally and physically! I have never had an instructor with such a gift like Kerry has! Her classes will change you! You can come in with the weight of the world on your shoulders and a million racing thoughts but after hearing Kerry’s calming words and beautiful messages, you will leave feeling a sense of peace and your body will feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated. She is so accommodating and makes sure every move has different options for each person's individual ability!
Lauren is a personable, astute listener/teacher with thought-provoking challenges and exercises that arouse the writer within.
Lauren provided excellent instruction, guided exercises, and a trusting positive environment in which to explore and grow as a writer.
