I have no doubt that a yoga/kirtan retreat with John de Kadt will be so much fun, deeply healing and memorable in all the best ways. He is highly skilled as a facilitator, super talented as a musician and storyteller bringing such great life experience and the love of the wisdom traditions to his groups. A very warm and approachable guy, John rocks!
