TESTIMONIALS

Find Your Light Retreat gave me the opportunity to rediscover the joy for creating I had lost touch with, in amongst a group of like-minded people who quickly became friends as well as creative partners.

The retreat helped me realise how important I am, at a time whereby I needed that reminder the most. I have never felt so safe and accepted in an environment before. No judgment, just support and appreciation for one another's individuality and creative-ness. It was something very special.

I had the time of my life! Best memories, peoples and opportunities ever. I’ve never felt so refreshed and full of love and inspiration in my life. Nat and Kyla are GENIUSES.

I am going to be thinking about what I learnt about my creative self and well-being forever. Totally life changing beautiful stuff x

The safest, most creative and at the same time freeing environment. So much space to facilitate and let people find what they needed from Creative Writing.

Took me a while to open up and fully let go but when I did it felt like a safe environment surrounded by amazing people. Can’t wait to do it all again!

I loved every single second of the retreat. I was able to express myself in ways I haven’t before surrounded by people who were fully committed to listening and accepting me for who I am underneath all the layers! Being able to work in groups of people I wouldn’t usually work with was particularly enlightening, we shared ideas and inspired each other to better our creativity and ourselves! Honestly, one of the best weeks of my life. Thank you FYL 2021 ❤️

A gorgeous time with gorgeous people. I am desperately sad to leave everyone behind but I feel refreshed and am so grateful to have experienced this wonderful change in mind and body. Thank you FYL!

Honestly just thank you, so much thought went into this and it was the most precious experience for everyone, one of those photo album kind of summer memories! I got more out of this week and a general feeling of being safe and content than any other help I have had this year and it is down to both of you for making it such a welcoming environment. Warm and Fuzzies ❤️

I can't tell you quite how incredible the Find Your Light Retreat was, but I can tell you this, you should do it. Be a part of a wonderful group of people, who's only intentions are to make you smile, laugh and cry (in a good way). Go and find your light with Kyla and Natalie, I was only there for a few hours over a couple of days and even in that short time and as a workshop leader, they helped me to re-discover mine.

Honestly, it exceeded my expectations!! I knew I was going to have fun, but I wasn’t prepared to feel as inspired and emotional as I did!! I keep trying to find the words to describe it, and my brain can’t function!! Which I think says it all - find your light was more of a feeling…it ignited a passion for creating that I had lost over the last couple of years, and I am incredibly thankful to you guys, and, actually, to myself - that I said yes to attending…I almost said no as I was anxious about being somewhere new with so many people…thank goodness I said yes!!

My experience was definitely a positive one! I found that after an initial bit of nerves I started to relax and get stuck in. I had one or two blips in my well-being, all from my own baggage rather than cause by anything external, and thankfully I had the space and time not usually afforded in daily life to take myself away and let it pass. What’s more, in these moments I even felt encouraged from our activities to process the feelings into something on paper. I also found that the whole week was a reminder of my truer self, flashing back to when I was a theatre kid who came alive when playing/performing with friends. I’m older now, and I’d like to think kinder and more considerate too, but I’m grateful I’ve kept that love of sharing myself and the things I enjoy. Thank you!
