Some of the feedback from previous years (people who’ve attended have had a very diverse range of experience & expectations, & have joined us from three continents & several countries):

‘I so loved this retreat’
‘Bless you, Roselle, such a wonderful time – a real anti-climax being home… I’ll move heaven and earth to come again next year’
‘Thank you for helping me find my core’
‘What an inspirational few days exploring West Penwith –wells, standing stones, fertility wheels and wonderful poetry. Thank you ever so much’
‘Dear Roselle – you have been such an inspiration to me – I wouldn’t have ever hoped to have such an organic and wonderful introduction to writing poetry’
‘Thanks, dear Roselle, for having us experience this space under your expert guidance’
‘This is what flying feels like / this buffeting of wings –
thank you for guiding the journey, Roselle’
‘[I] have found [my] heart’
‘As I said to you, the week exceeded my expectations. It felt very right to go, and I felt accepted, and privileged to be in such caring, supportive company with all the wealth of experience. The week was what I was looking for without knowing quite what I was looking for! I loved the connectivity and the wisdom of the group – in all of its guises – as well as touching the Land in such special ways. And it was transformative, but I don’t yet know quite how…’

and some responded in poetry, which I won’t quote here to respect their creative privacy.
