“I came to your silent retreat tired and worn out. After basking in the stillness – in the lovely setting you created and with the variety of quieting activities that were offered – I truly sprang back to energy and life. And the retreat team worked so well together and thought of every detail to make this retreat ‘ZENsational!’ Thank you.”
“Wow! What an awe-inspiring experience.This was my first experience of your Silent Retreat and it's deliberate, conscientious practices made me appreciate each moment.
