TESTIMONIALS from this retreat:
I recommend Nurture Through Nature and this retreat because it was beautiful, serene, and we can find exactly what we need here.
The food was delicious. I liked the amount of down time in between meals and lessons. I am grateful for the opportunity to breathe, find myself, meditate, do yoga, and connect to all around me.
As in the past, I felt graciously welcomed and able to just “be”. There is peace, acceptance and beauty here. Comfort and safety in all aspects of the retreat. I loved spending time meditating in different ways. The silence was a gift to me. –Deb
Everything was amazing and appreciated. I am so grateful that I was guided to NTN to get back to nature, to myself. The sauna and the brook was surprisingly beneficial. Thank you! –Kim
There were great lessons on awareness. I loved the group participation and the singing/chanting. The music, yoga and meditation worked for me. –Gene
