    "I have been on retreat DALuz and it was a unique expirience. There is no words to describe how amazing is to be there. The energy there is something hard to explain in words. We get a customized treatment there. I highly recommend"

  • Review by Anna-Kathrin E. from Germany

    "To be honest, to describe an internal experience in words is actually impossible. But I can say that the stay with this family as simple as it occurred in the first place unfolded a giant healing process. All my inner most questions about observations within and without could get a reflection and a place to be true. Old wisdom and ancient knowledge is suddenly accessible and after a couple of days (which feel like weeks:) the own inner energy is raising up again and you remember. Well the last sentence sounds a bit over-romantic-contemporary-hippie-bla, but it is what it is:) When you can't handle big changes and transitions please don't go there and if you can feel this deep urge to know and to heal from an honest place within, well then this is going to find You. Thank you for everything universe! Love, Anna"
