I came home with very useful tools. Professionally, the retreat helped me be very honest with the seriousness and the sadness of the sustainability issues we are faced with, and although it was tough confronting the deepest pains that we see in this world, that honesty deepened my conviction for my work and the purpose I am able to satisfy through the platform of my work. Personally, I “cracked open” some more. The retreat helped me tremendously with feeling a deeper connection to nature and our love for it. This was what I was yearning for so deeply, for a long time but had not been able to find the right opportunity to satisfy this longing. I was so satiated after the retreat. It not only helped me realized how I can be more authentic with myself, it helped me become more authentic with myself. The experiences of the retreat illuminated various pain points I’ve been dealing with, which in turn, helped me get clarity on why they were painful, and how to be with these pain points moving forward. I felt like I was recalibrated, more aligned with my north star. This recalibration left me acutely more aware of who I want to be in the world.

I can’t stress enough how impactful this retreat ended up being for me, I think I had an intuition that it would be amazing, but I left feeling changed, for the better.

This retreat provided clarity that I needed to trust my intuition, actively inquire about how to be my truest and best self, and the importance of honoring myself, family and planet in the work that I do.

I highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking to experience a deeper connection to nature and self in order to advance their environmental and social impacts. Gwen is a compassionate guide who meets you in your personal journey and celebrates your contributions and passions!

The Grief Council was a big highlight for me. I am now speaking my truth openly even if it means I have to talk through some tears. My communication has been much more common/eloquent/whole heartedly truthful. It has been an empowering shift! I have no doubt it started in that grief circle as it was so powerful.
