  • I’ve been meaning to write ever since I returned from the retreat to express my gratitude again. Thank you very much for putting on the retreat. Thank you for creating the positive energy for everyone to experience and enjoy. I cannot put into words what the retreat did for me. It found me when I most needed it. I really believe that, it found me. The Source put it in front of me and I paid attention and took the opportunity. The retreat made me feel the best, both physically or mentally, I've felt in a really long time. It really helped me take a step back and open my senses, improve my awareness and change some of my mindsets that had been stuck for so long. I feel like I am more aware and hopefully more able to make positive changes. Thank you for being an excellent facilitator and leader through the journey. I enjoyed every part of the retreat. I especially enjoyed the Qi Gong yoga. Many, many thanks. I hope you realize that you are having a positive impact. Thank you so much! –Angela H, Maine

  • The mix of down time and the options for group outings worked for me. Enjoyed our sunset walks, yoga, meditations immensely. The evening circles added closure to each day and was important to me. I appreciate your guidance, your sense of humor, the music you choose...Our morning yoga and meditation was what I looked forward to every day!  Bliss!!! –JW, Maine

  • Thanks for the blessings, the fun, the love. I loved the way you set the atmosphere, found the middle ground with our group, during the yoga practices...the evening circles were close and intimate experiences which continued to reinforce community. The outings were a great mix of experiences. I  am glad so much was available, yet optional at the same time. You are awesome and I would return! –Janet, Maine

  • I so appreciated your compassion and kindness during my transition and ascension. –Brenda, Maine

  • For me the retreat was the right balance of yoga meditation. Quiet reflective time and exploring time.I went there not knowing anyone except you and at first felt uncomfortable but told myself this was all about me learning to like myself more and it was for my personal self growth.Our outing to the bird sanctuary was great and I enjoyed the day a lot.The hike up to volcano crater was good as it was wonderful to see the town from a higher view. The meals were fantastico and we love Mari and her family!! I love the way you teach and I am a Jen yoga teacher convert. I appreciate the way you run a retreat as you managed to find time to connect and make everyone feel your love and intention. Bravo –K Dunn, Maine

  • The structure of the day with retreat activities, free time, meal times, gave a continuous flow of good energy through the day. So what do I mean by good energy: Continuity, Peacefulness & Mindfulness, the mindfulness,being captured by the Noble Silence. I gained "Strength", through the outer strength I began to feel from the Yoga lent to a deeper inner strength. Through the risk of sharing ourselves with women we did not know, I felt a "connectivity" with our human experience. I truly felt "refreshed" in every way, through the physical aspect; meditations, sharing, and the beautiful environment, and the meals!! Much Love & Gratitude to you as your special spirit has enriched us all! –Kathleen Stevens, Maine

  • Everything worked for me. The location, the amenities, the people, your message & vibe, the yoga & meditating, the amount of time we spent together, the amount of alone time I had. I gained a true knowledge of the value and importance of being quiet. I knew this but to experience it was amazing. Noble Silence was a gift! And having you walk us through breathing was huge. I think I didn't know how to breathe properly my whole life. Or if I did I forgot and that made a huge difference in me being able to focus and concentrate and relax. Thanks so much Jen. I think your're especially wonderful!! –Karen Wilson, Maine

  • A gentleman I work with said to me, "Hey, look at're back, looking healthy as ever and look at that bounce you have back in your step!" Mission accomplished! I am so grateful he noticed because that is what I have really missed. It's back! My heart, mind and spirit are so much lighter since joining your retreat. It has been great for my soul. I knew I needed it and I am so glad I did it. I have really found myself again. Thank you Jen! –Robin Matthews, Connecticut
