Here you can read testimonials from participants from the previous retreats:

During a most difficult period in life it has been of great value to put it all on pause and walk more clear on the path of practicing for a while. To sit with whatever it is. And doing it together with others under the leading of a great teacher can be most healing. – Inger W-Forss

“Novelty is having new experiences of ourselves in the world”. I knew beach holidays, I knew hiking trips. I knew dining and clubbing in cities, I knew dinner parties and long conversations, but I didn’t know I could be silent and digital free for a week and feel absolutely relaxed and inspired. – Gu Jian

I regained faith in essence-love through being with/in it. I found new ways of vitalizing my practice through movement. – Anonymous

Great teacher, great place, warm and safe atmosphere. Worth to do at least once a year. – Anonymous

It’s very hard to write a short testimonial about a profound, personal experience. What I can say is that giving yourself time, in silence, with others, under the guidance of an experienced teacher is an investment in your wellbeing and therefore for others. It is really a unique gift. – Anonymous

A life saving experience! I found something I didn’t know I ́d lost! – Anonymous

A silent week in beautiful nature with meditation, yoga, long walks, good food and swimming, what more do you need? – Anonymous
