Your retreat was a HUGE success! Frankly, I didn't know exactly what to expect, and was happily overwhelmed. I thought perhaps it would be intensive study and that intimidated me, so when I realized it was all educational FUN, I was thrilled. I enjoyed the experience, start to finish. Our venue could not have been better. Beautiful, secluded, cozy. The trees outside spoke to us, and all of the natural wood inside wrapped its arms fondly around us. It's no wonder spirits and kind energies were present. J. Moss
