We want to grow this as we have grown, as our daughter has grown, it is time to ripple out the love further, all beings have the innate capacity to love to thrive, to be happy, to be ok with the times that are hard.  We are grateful to have gathered the tools, wisdom and community to be able to offer  exceptional learning and experiences for people.  This retreat is for singles and couples.. No matter where we are in life we have infinite portals of relationship awaiting our attention.  We are here to serve.. Please reach out if you have any questions.
