“The ceremony itself was of course profound and amazing, but even outside of that, the team and the way the retreat has been designed was also really healing. There was so much support and fun and laughter, but also a safe space to explore pain and stuck emotion. The facilitators are very experienced and are really present all the time.
The venue is so beautiful and comfortable - I was not expecting it, the food was excellent and the activities were carefully designed. Sometimes the activities seemed a little arbitrary, but eventually you come to see how deeply useful they are, especially in terms of preparing the mind to be in a place of receptivity for the ceremony.
One of the biggest things that I learnt was the power of connection and how sharing your stories with others can be very healing in and of itself. There are a million other things to write here too, but I am not able to put words to it yet. I feel like something very deep inside me has been shifted in a positive way.
I felt so safe and so comfortable throughout the retreat, It was above and beyond my expectations in every way. I'm grateful to the team for creating such a safe and welcoming environment.”
