Through our Sisterhood workshops and retreats my team and I have been fortunate to meet, teach and inspire the most amazing creatives, and entrepreneural souls from all over the world. Many of them have been kind to share their experiences with us afterwards, and we appreciate deeply all the feedback we receive so that we can learn from it and continuously improve and optimize our events and learning journeys. We invest heart and soul in creating the most educational, flavor-packed and memorable programmes and events, and like to think that we offer exemplary quality. However, in order to help you get a feel for the quality that we offer, here are just some of the comments and feedback from previous attendees.
"creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, courage and a generous heart in one beautiful human. You are incredible sif orellana."
GILLIAN BELL, AUSTRALIA
“These days have been just magical! Thank you so much."
MARIA HÄRDNER, SWEDEN
"Sif, a very special and heartfelt thank you to you! I suggest we forget about TED Talks and we launch Sif’s Talks because you’re much more generous, genuine and inspiring than anyone else! I could listen to you on repeat! Thank you for creating this very special sisterhood, I really feel like a part of a family."
KARMEN VODA, PARIS
“I have been full of peace and happiness ever since. Thank you for an amazing retreat and learning experience."
LOUISE GRANHOF JUHL, DENMARK
"I SIGNED UP FOR SIF'S WORKSHOP HOPING TO HONE MY VISUAL STORYTELLING TECHNIQUES...BUT I LEFT WITH SO MUCH MORE."
For me, the main benefits came when Sif shared the inside secrets of her incredible personal success story and from receiving invaluable individual feedback which she happily provided beyond workshop hours and even upon my return home! Importantly, she makes you feel comfortable instantly, no matter your photographic experience. Her down-to-earth approach helped participants to immediately gel well together which made the workshop fun.
Sif's style of communicating her visual storytelling knowledge is unique and made me feel truly connected and inspired. I returned home equipped with more tools and fully motivated to take action on my dreams.
I can’t speak highly enough of Sif's workshops.
IVAN EBEJER, MALTA
“I am still in some kind of euphoria after my retreat with Sif Orellana."
Thank you so much for being the most inspiring, caring and warm person I have met in a long time, Sif. I will always be grateful for this retreat.

It was such an honor to be a part of this creative bunch, made extra special by our lovely leader and teacher Sif. Her passion and ability to inspire, her big heart and kind words, her empathy and unlimited generosity are so precious and inspiring that we were all in awe. I came back home with a full heart and lots of new friends. It was unforgettable! Thank you Sif for bringing us all together and sharing your hearts and wisdom!”
