“The four-week workshop with Eanlai was like a super-charged jump-start to my writing practice. The exercises during the sessions produced writing that would not have happened otherwise.  My creativity blossomed, I felt more connected and pleased with my own writing, and as each week went by I was able to go deeper into whatever I wrote. The feedback from the group was luscious, and spurred me on into the rest of the week to do more and more writing.  The process was remarkable and the energy in the room was transformative. A singularly invaluable experience.” —Marilyn Bobbin, Palo Alto, CA

“Éanlai Cronin is a both a poet and a healer. Being in her AWA writing workshop gave me the profound and unprecedented experience of being truly seen, heard, and supported. Eanlai listens deeply and knows how to nurture the Soul. In her workshop I felt safe to speak my truth, affirmed in the dignity of my own voice. Eanlai is one of the wisest, most courageous women I’ve ever met; just to be in her presence is to be uplifted and transformed.” —Elizabeth Perlman, Oakland, CA

“Seven weeks into the eight week class, I remain amazed at the writings I’ve done and shared. While we always had a choice not to share, I read my writing aloud each and every time. The women in my group, including Eanlai, were always thoughtful and kind with their feedback. What surprised me the most was the gift of being present for others who were also writing the soul awake. At times, I felt as if others’ words were meant just for me to hear. Not only is Eanlai an excellent facilitator, she was one with the group and shared her writings aloud with the rest of us. Thank you Eanlai for an incredible ride.” —Pat Frasca, Alameda, CA

“My experience with Eanlai, through two writing courses now is that she creates an atmosphere of safety and magic. I know that Writing the Soul Awake has helped to change me and stir things inside me. It is both cathartic and energizing. I look forward to seeing what writings emerge from me and my fellow writers. It is quite inspiring and will stay with me for a very long time.” —Jude Pollack, Oakland, CA

“Writing with Eanlai was an amazing experience! I felt totally at ease in our group and broke through the writer’s block I’d been experiencing for the past year. Eanlai inspires me to keep writing and to believe in myself. I would recommend her groups to anyone who wants to find her voice and reconnect with her inner artist.” —Nicki Orser, Petaluma, CA
