Our time together was a truly special start to my year & I felt I could share & be with you in ways I had never contemplated! I will always have precious memories of it. It HAS been useful in my life & I have moved on a lot since I got home. (What is important to me) includes that magic word …touch- to be touched in spirit & body! (I enjoyed) actually being able to drop so easily into the flow of the week & let go of stuff like (I must do this!) the sharing …the learning of the workshop itself & what felt like such a beautiful easy connection between us. This retreat is a wonderful way to nourish your being in a nurturing, true, connected environment. Beautiful, fabulous, nourishing, transformational – Joy is truly gifted & in touch with the essence of life ~ Jane Seaman, Poole
