About the Guest:

Aurora is a writer, poet, speaker, and creative advocate. Her passion is language in all its creative forms. She loves supporting others in learning their creative language through writing, somatics, and other forms of self-expression.  

Aurora believes in raw honesty and that true love includes grace and accountability.  She believes that compassion is the foundation of connecting to our tangible essence, that meeting ourselves where we are invites a knowing to all that we have been and are becoming.

She holds a degree in psychology and is a trained therapeutic horseback riding instructor, and certified trauma yoga instructor with continuing education in somatics. Some things that bring her joy are reading bedtime stories to her fur kids, the depth of human stories, waterfalls, and the sky in all its glory.

About the Host: 




Anna was born with a deep fascination for letters - a fascination that deepened when she discovered those letters could turn into words, those words into sentences and those sentences into stories. Not surprisingly, Anna graduated from The University of Victoria, with a Degree in both English and Gender Studies, fuelling her eventual mission to put the power of words back into the hands of women.

Despite multiple other certifications along the way, including one with world-renowned author and personal transformation pioneer, Deepak Chopra, it was ultimately her personal battle with post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety that became the catalyst for the work she does now, as she helps pave the way for others to live with vulnerability and courage whether they are online, offline or on stage. 


She is currently completing her Masters degree in Professional Communication at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia.
