This wonderful retreat has given me the tools to really see ever day experiences afresh…maybe akin to putting on glasses and a hearing aid; seeing with greater clarity and actually hearing words spoken. I feel more attuned to conversations but the best of all is that others appear more engaged also. By slowing down, my world has actually become richer and more peaceful by allowing and accepting ‘what is’.  I’ve actually achieved more on my ‘to do list’ in my personal life and aware that there is another way of dealing with the stressors within the workplace. Its all about acknowledging and allowing! Thank you to our instructors for having the wisdom of running such a great retreat in a beautiful location!    

I had never done anything like this before and did not know what to expect. I was hoping that I would learn how to meditate, do some yoga and perhaps some new cooking skills. I was blown away by the whole experience, learning how to do mindful meditation has changed my life. Learning some yoga has inspired me to practice and learn more yoga. The cooking class has given me a confidence to try new things. Meeting and sharing the experience with people from all over the world was totally amazing. Daniel and Nik did such an awesome job of arranging all the practice sessions, workshops and other activities. They are so genuinely honest, kind and sincere. I am so happy and grateful for meeting them I will totally being doing another retreat with them.  

So happy that I met Daniel! Within a few seconds he gave me so much more information compared to all the doctors I have talked to before. He certainly knows what he is talking about and he is very motivated to help people. Besides that he made me learn a lot about myself, which is fantastic. A very inspiring and knowledgeable person who looks further to give the best advice and help where needed. Much appreciated, thank you!       

This was my first time I have the experience of the retreat that taught me to understand myself as Daniel is a wonderful teacher and had a lot of empathy and love for people   Thank you   

Be kind to yourselves come and nourish your body and mind

Looking forward to see you there
