Whimsical & Inspiring Thank you for understanding better than me why I came on Retreat. Thank you for opening my mind and releasing all kinds of insights I barely had about myself & the surrounding world. Thank you for this wonderful and magical cabin, isolated, safe and cosy just as it is, with plenty of inspiring books. I am grateful for lots of things since my stay here and also to have been able to be here & to have met you. Thank you Chloe 2019 “True life changing experience ” The vibe of the place, the learning and insights from Teresa, and the food!!... everything helps to get in touch with your true self. Teresa knows how to put you at ease and is a wonderful teacher. I learned so much and carried most of the practice now in my daily life to continue my journey towards a better version of myself - with a still mind and a lighter heart.Will be back at some point."
