    Doing yoga and meditation in the dark helped me to get deeper in to my mind and body. Letting go of fear and an issue I was struggling for ages. I feel detoxed and balance. Full of love and energy. I loved the shamanic rituals like dancing and singing to get in to a trance state of mind.

    Working in the group was sometimes difficult because it distracted me of my inner work but it also helped to build up the energy of the rituals.

    I came to the retreat to get some rest and do some yoga. What I got instead was a truly life-changing experience. Words cannot convey the immense journey I have been guided through. The location was the perfect setting, and the mixture of people and their varied stories gave us all the chance to remember that we all share the same truth: that we want to love and be loved, to find the inner light and accept, nurture, and forgive the past…the Shadow.On this journey I cherished all of the teacher’s (Boonath) words as he guided us through the asanas, mantras and meditations. He took the sacred teachings and shared them with us wish such humble beauty. It became a palpable, natural, logical, spiritual state to experience all of the ropes of life’s emotions, to accept and love ourselves and to honour the Shadow as it reveals the Light.In the sacred circle, when we shared eye contact I felt transported into another state of being, feeling more love than I have ever before. My heart broke open and it filled the space. Thank you

    I feel like I entered some sort of fairy-tale. It was simply magical. I cannot begin to describe how beautiful the location is. The surroundings took my breath away and I felt loved and supported. I was given the gift of hope that maybe the world and mother earth have a chance to heal. The retreat surpassed by far my expectations

    A wonderful collective healing experience. The atmosphere created allowed much growth and nourishment to take place. Physical and emotional comfort was attended with love and generosity. Wisdom and insight was shared with such love by the teacher (Boonath) that the practice opened up new doors in my consciousness. It was truly an honour to be lead through the practice by such a graceful and compassionate being

    I cannot thank you enough for the retreat. I felt like I healed and progressed in leaps and bounds in the few days that we were all together. The honesty and the sharing that were brought to the table inspired and encouraged me. I came with an open mind and I left with an open heart. After nearly a lifetime of constriction and restriction, I’ve found my voice again, and with it, that wonderful aliveness in the center of my chest.

    The yoga Retreat showed me again what had been hidden inside me and I am very thankful for it. Kim and Boonath provided extensive support practically, spiritually as well as intellectually as they disposed over a range of strategies and seemed to complement each other in an almost poetical way which reminding me of the famous friends Narcissus and Goldmund in the book by Hermann Hesse. The retreat was very recreational, the food and surrounding nature absolutely fantastic, and I can recommend the retreat to anyone who wants to explore the playful and at the same time powerful side of human existence.

  • Ajit India

    On the first day, I was a little intimidated with the system as I didn’t expect this line of healing. It was quite an experience. Frankly, I thought it was a scene from some kind of horror movie with the chantings in the dark and the way the words like “witch” were used quite so informally. I only got over it the 3rd day, when the momentum got the better of me. And then it was smooth sailing. I got to understand Boonath and his mystical moves and the group gave me a lot of encouragement. The way people talked to each other and interacted was for me an eye-opener. Organizing and getting everyone on board and keep them happy was a formidable task. Big thank you!

    The retreat was perfect in every way, sometimes there may be one thing that could be altered this was not the case! From the moment I arrived the host was so freindly and helpful like a friend greeting you, he made me feel very comfortable and any nervousness vanished. The yoga was very authentic, unique and just how it was described when I booked, I certainly got what I was looking for. The accommodation was really clean a high standard and very comfortable and the vegan food was first class, delicious! Its clear there is a lot of love and care that goes into the planning of these retreats, the only thing is I didnt want to leave. Thank you for such an amazing experience, one I will remember my whole life!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat. It was 'curated' with great care, class and such kindness, a truly unique experience that moved my practice and understanding to another dimension. It seemed to attract true seekers and bring out all the yoga potential in the group. What a gem of an experience.
