Here’s what people are saying about Seduce Your Muse:

  “LOVED IT ALLLIFE CHANGING!!”  –Sharon, Ottawa, Canada

“I would definitely do this again! I will be recommending this to other “kindred spirits” who would be able to receive and learn from Davina’s gifts. Davina is both inspirational and great fun. She clearly knows and loves this city. Seduce Your Muse was very well organized and Davina kept the pace moving in time. I loved Davina’s coaching for inspiration! Seduce Your Muse jump starts your writing: Venice awakens your soul.”

“Seduce Your Muse was rich, stimulating, and extremely helpful. I would totally do it again!”Laurie, California, USA

“I loved the variety of different types of writing and of the creativity and coaching exercises that brought out different dimensions of my self.  It was very powerful! I loved the combination of being in a beautiful, magical, fascinating place – and awakening creativity and being creative is incredibly juicy and satisfying. Yummmm! Davina has a wonderful capacity to coach, to support and draw out essence and life force! I loved her playfulness and sense of drama – and our full moon walk night with masks.”

“This workshop went beyond my expectations. And I’m a tough audience!” -Jacqueline B., Canada

Seduce Your Muse unleashed my creativity and refreshed my writing. Davina creates a safe space where you can explore the new realms that writing can take you into. She is a competent coach who encourages us to become whom we want to be and helps us to let go of what no longer serves us. I will recommend Seduce Your Muse to others and yes, I would love to do this again.”

“High quality retreat! Very inspiring! Now I know I can manifest this dream!!”  -Yessica, Amsterdam

“Top notch retreat. High value for price! I would recommend Seduce Your Muse to others. You relax more and can be even more of your true self. Intimate and safe. Vacation-feel away from it all in a really unique and distinctive location. Very inspiring, stimulating and helped me get unstuck and writing again.”

Seduce Your Muse is a perfect blend of beauty, fun, learning and good friends!.. The week I spent with Davina brought writing out of me I never imagined I had.  She is a kind, soulful teacher grounded in her art and in spirit.  The apartment was clean, fully equipped and so much fun. My bedroom windows opened onto a small canal, and there was even a washer and dryer.  There was plenty of time for both writing and sightseeing.  Definitely a do again.”- Garnet M., California
