A WORD FROM FORMER PARTICIPANTS

'The retreat was wonderfully safe, creative and open. I was so grateful for such an inspiring space to explore and connect, dive deep, move and express what was in my heart and life at the moment. Thank you for providing the support and guidance, and so much love.'

“Ingrid opened my eyes to a new dimension in my life and the possibility of being able, on my own, to break the chains.”
