This great adventure was fantastic on so many levels!!! The knowledge I gained about the environment and all the beings that populate the earth. is invaluable. My awareness has expanded hugely and I feel very humbled by this great experience in which I deeply connected with others, gained a renewed respect and appreciation for our planet and personally opened my heart and mind. Both Diana and Charity were masterful in creating a safe space for us to be ourselves and to be vulnerable. Loved the meditation and yoga, the food was superb, very comfy accommodations, the property was gorgeous. I so respect everyone who works at the animal sanctuary and their dedication to an immensely important cause.

Charity & Diana seamlessly adapted the retreat in response to inclement weather, providing a warm and grounding space, delicious meals, and 2 beautiful yoga and meditation practices. Both teachers facilitated mindfulness during our 10-mile hike and dune restoration the following day, with gentle, subtle reminders that helped to take the practice "off the mat". Thoughtful present teachers, a beautiful location in Pt. Reyes and delicious vegan meals... What more could you want?
