"I have done The Serpent Power Retreat with Micheal in India. It was amazing and really deep. It really impacted me so positively. I got into meditation and pranayama deeply, which really helping me elevate my energy first thing in the morning. These practices keep me mentally emotionally healthy. During and After his retreat I healed my relationship with my family. During the retreat I could see a lot of my own patterns stopping me from expressing my love for my family. There are so many other things that shifted since the retreat. I am super grateful. Look forward to do another one in near future. Thank you so much Micheal" - Selenge, Mongolia

I have been here for a month and enjoyed this place so much, people and teachers are caring and knowledgeable. The food is amazing with a variety of vegan comfort food which makes even a meat eater to dye for. The place is very peaceful and quiet and I am missing already to be there. Looking forward to get back as soon as I can and partecipate to another silent retreat
