"If you're looking for a conventional retreat with rules and a strict set timetable, this is not for you. It is an unique experience if you're ready for it. It is a reminder of who you are. It is eyed-opening. They are both highly life experienced and sensitive people (and they cook delicious meals). They have wisdom to share with you if you're open to receive it. I highly recommend the experience to anyone open to rediscover themselves."
