‘The ‘Path of the Mystica’ Retreat was so nourishing spiritually. It really was a divine temple space in a magical circle as women, where we were invited to dance our wildness, reveal and release our fears, and melt into deep ecstatic love with the divine. This is the magic that our souls crave… and here it was! Facilitated by two beautiful Goddesses, priestesses and mystical themselves. Thank you beautiful Schirin and magical Halo for inviting and nourishing the mystica in all of us!’ Abigail Samson, Pennsylvania, USA ‘The ‘Path of the Mystica’ Retreat was such an eloquent process in transformation through somatic therapy and devotion. I experienced deep healing and am excited to see this resonance through my life path. Schirin is a master of dancing the metaphor of life’s mysteries and dropping deep into he heart chamber, thus bringing meaning to each movement…Both (Halo Seronko) instructors teach with humility and compassion that awakens my own deep compassion and expansive view of unconditional love.’ Hailey Sanura, California
