 Testimonials from 2017

What a weekend! I came away from the retreat filled with peace, serenity and new-found inspiration. The entire retreat was thoughtfully planned and designed. The yoga, guided meditations, drumming, sound baths and fire circle were perfect. The location, accommodations and the food were spectacular! Can’t wait to do it again!  Trish - Retreat Participant May 2017


Thank you for the wonderful weekend retreat in the Northern Cascades.  It was well thought out and organized.  We were able to melt in to our surroundings of the mountains, water and wildlife around us.  I enjoyed all of our yoga sessions, taking a guided hike to a waterfall, letting our intentions go in the fire ceremony, meeting like-minded people and more.  What a wonderful experience!   Danielle - Retreat Participant May 2017
