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!

“Though we travel the world over again, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
