Inner Harmony & Expansion Retreat Participants Feedback

The circle of women who gathered at the weekend profoundly touched my Heart and Soul. The depth of truth and raw honesty was incredible. The threads of connection running through each and every one of us, was so very powerful. The love, respect, kindness and caring from everyone, to everyone was simply Magical.  I have never experienced this with a group before. It was an honour to be present at this weekend and witness the beautiful unfolding of each amazing woman. Wow, what a weekend!

You are an incredible woman in how you work with people. Your Soul just shone through while holding space in this sacred group of beautiful people. The love that poured out from you and everyone was palpable. Thank you for the your beautiful way of being. It’s like another world within this world, which is a sacred space of safety and to just simply be. The Eco Lodge Accommodation was perfect in every way. The Food you prepared and delivered to us all was delicious and so nurturing.”

“Thank you Michelle, and thank you so much again for such a beautiful weekend ❣”

“Lovely accommodation, really enjoyed it. Some lovely spots near by for a walk. As always, I came back with a lot and I always get something new out of these weekends. The food was great and everyone’s contribution gave a lovely mix to the evening meal and the final days lunch”.

“What a wonderful weekend. It was amazing on so many levels. Beautifully selected accommodation and venue. The accommodation was so tasty, every detail was considered and supplied. Excellent, comfortable and luxurious. Having the sauna on site and the outside baths was just gorgeous.  I really enjoyed the choice of socializing with the group and had such a lovely time chatting with everyone.
I watched as you Facilitated with such skill and presence.  Val brought another very potent energy to the weekend which I really enjoyed.  Your willingness to be 100% authentic, sharing lived-experience in an instructive way, was powerful and transformative. It was beautiful to observe the shifts in the individuals.  I don’t think that there was any one that wasn’t transformed in some way. Food is such an important part of a retreat; coming together and sharing. The food was fabulous and much appreciated.”
