      This place is magical! Donnie and Heather were perfect hosts. We learned about Non-violent communications and singing bowls. Both of their voices are heavenly and the accommodations fantastic.
      By Suzann R for Suzann & Gary Mini Retreat on May 22, 2024
      It was absolutely EPIC - ticked all the boxes I could have imagined and then some. Accommodation was amazing, the lovely garden that Heather & Donny live in is so wholesome, you feel like you are in your own little Oasis. Delicious breakfast served every morning, and YUM plant-based lunches. Honestly some of the recipes I still make at home (and definitely recommend Heather & Donny's recipe book for more). It really felt like I was coming home to family. The retreat itself was a wonderful experience. From the morning Yoga, Aerial Yoga and Sound Baths, to the evening Circles, Ceremonies and Sound Baths, it was an all-round incredible experience. I also have to point out that you won't experience a class like the ones with Heather & Donny anywhere else, as Donny plays live music while Heather teaches and guides you through the practice. An absolutely magical experience that makes each class as unique as the people within it. I also want to mention that there is plenty of free time to integrate the experiences and explore the island. During my entire stay with Heather & Donny I managed to get around Maui and see all the places I wanted (like Hana, Haleakala Volcano Crater, town, some beaches, etc.). I will definitely be back, and if you're thinking about heading there - I highly recommend it. If you're still reading this, make sure the thing you do after this is book your retreat (and tell me how it went!!). :)

      I had a great week with Heather and Donny. The meals were amazing, I actually purchased a cookbook at the end of the week so I can recreate some of my favorite meals and try some new ones at home! During my free time they offered a cold plunge, hot tub with clay and also had a sauna available. Free afternoons left me with time to explore the island a bit and Heather and Donny had plenty of recommendations! Would love to return one day.
      By Heather G for 6 Days/5 Nights Feb. 26-March 2, 2024 YOGA & SOUND HEALING | Maui HI on Mar 07, 2024
      The retreat was beyond my expectations! I got from it more than I could expect. Infinite inspiration, lots of self-understanding and lots of love for me and my body. I already experience positive effects from it and will experience more in the next few months! I highly recommend it to everyone!
      By Nina K for 6 Days/5 Nights Dec. 11-16, 2023 YOGA & SOUND HEALING | Maui HI on Feb 16, 2024
      Thank you so much Nina for your beautiful testimonial. We are so happy that you received so much value out of our program and that two months later the transformation is still deepening for you! <3 xoxo

      This was a wonderful experience! Besides all the experiences an Egypt trip can offer, we had multiple private entrances to temples and the Great Pyramid along with meditations in sacred places that only this spiritual couple could offer. Mohammed is the best guide while also finding comfortable places for us to rest while sightseeing. The hotels are top notch, the boat was our floating oasis between activities and the food was great. I wish I could do this trip again!
      By Scot M for 15 Day Ancient Egypt Spiritual Pilgrimage on Feb 04, 2024
      We loved having you both on our pilgrimage! Thank you for bringing your sacred presence. Yes, come on another one! Please!
