Reviews

Heather and Monica did an amazing job of planning this retreat! Everything was wonderful, the location, the accommodations, the daily itinerary, and the knowing of what was needed and when! Thank you both for creating such a safe space for us all to drop our guards and be vulnerable with ourselves and one another! I got so much from the entire trip, and especially the plant medicine journey. I really feel like I cracked open the armor around my heart! This was one of the most sacred and memorable experiences I've had in my life! With much gratitude!! Sheri
