This retreat exceeded my expectations. I now feel that I control my mind and that I am using this body /mind as my tool. It was the most beautiful, blissful three days.

Over this 3 day retreat the most impressive for me was the mind and its patterns somewhat shifted which I believe was from the exposure to Advaita. The explorative/investigative direction was really precious. It builds confidence & momentum that can be used to make lasting changes.

This retreat has strongly influenced by practice. It has given me more structure but at the same time with an ease and grace.

Due to the extremely meditative technique my walking meditation became more and more focused and my mind was not able to ‘talk over” or “talk in” place of my steps.

I loved the contemplation sessions, because instead of asking a question and looking for external help, we were invited to deepen our own experience and actually find the answer on our own.
