We have been to lots of nature vacations but none compares to this. This has a peace and tranquility even beyond what the natural surroundings bring to it. To put it simply, it feels good to be here.

Wow! This place is special. After a few days you’ll realize you’re in the middle of something more that is going on, not only within yourself while you’re away from the hustle and bustle- but within Ratna Ling intself. Give yourself the gift of just being here. Take the classes. I’m glad I did! Taste the amazing food!
