    "I came to the retreat simply wanting some time out and to be better at learning to be still. I leave with so much more. The past five days have exceeded my expectations in ways I thought was not possible. My heart is lighter and fuller of joy and for the first time in a while I not only feel excited about my future but I want to jump in feet first. Thanks for reminding me just how much joy, beauty and laugher there is to be found in the everyday and how amazingly powerful a bunch of awesome women can be. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. I will return one day. Much love, Claire."

    "The most nurturing, healing, uplifting, energizing and joyful experience I think I've ever had! It was truly life changing. I feel calmer, happier, healthier and more connected than I have in years. It has given me the confidence and awareness to start listening to and following my heart. I absolutely loved everything about it - the location, the food, the beautiful group of women, the workshops, the energy, everything! Thank you so much!"

    "I came to the retreat feeling pretty good but as the days progressed I realized that I had not been in touch with the real me for years. I found myself again! I feel joyous, inspired and filled with love and admiration for all of the beautiful women I touched souls with."

    "This retreat gave me the space to be free from judgment and to gain clarity of mind. I feel so empowered to take this authentic self back to my every day life. It was just what my soul needed. Pushing my boundaries, stepping outside my comfort zone and confronting my internal judge. Im trying not to promise myself too much about how I will improve my life but Im motivated and aware of the small changes I might make to be more authentic in my every day."
