“Sensational! Rich! Rewarding! My soul sang with joy and is still reverberating from this deeply healing divine retreat. Threads of love, care and support were woven into each day creating a beautiful canvas to dance in. We started as strangers but came way with incredible new friendships and a whole new heart family.“ Margot, Australia
