RETREAT: The teaching of a retreat is integration. It is indeed a blessing to step out of the inside of which you abide periodically, as it adds perspective, moves energy, pulls us out of our comfortable familiarity, and offers a remembrance of the interconnectedness we are once we see new things, new cultures, new geographies, arts, music forms, spiritual practices of wellness and ways of being.

I  offer Cultural, Wellness, Yoga & Spiritual Retreats & Trainings primarily throughout the Gulf Coast Region of the United States, The Bahamas, Bali, India, Spain and Europe. Join me!
