This retreat was one of the most powerful and memorable experiences of my life. Peaceful and loving environment, amazing staff and teachers, great sessions and incredibly delicious food. Every session felt really open, accessible and welcoming. Though challenging the first few days, I saw transformation and change as it was happening in me. Would definitely come back to do this again. — Mahesh Marisetti
