    it was a wonderful and relaxing retreat. Saturday felt like it was two days wrapped in one. Loved the kirtan and the creekwalk!

    I am a different person, now. After suddenly losing my husband in March, I attended the April retreat. I was an eggshell of emotion and I didn’t know if I could get through the retreat but it was so gentle and healing… the Kiirtan, the music, the heart circle, the dancing, the nature hike. I am seeing the beauty and joy in life again. I can hold the love and joy of my past with the love and joy of the present. I can see little glimpses of a new future, too.

      Thanks for letting us know that Jean. This is the sort of thing that makes it all so very worthwhile.

    Truly Amazing. This has made a positive, lasting change in my perception of the world. I feel great. 🙂 Thank you everyone!

    We awoke each morning to the gentle sound of kiirtan and the sun peeking through the oaks and carried that sense of serenity and interconnectedness throughout the rest of the day. This retreat allowed me to refocus on what is truly important, and to meet others who are walking this same spiritual path. Thank you, Dada, for your kindness, insight, and humor. I greatly look forward to my next visit!! <3
