What an absolutely beautiful and nourishing gathering this was. Words cannot even describe how it left me feeling... Kundalini yoga, tree meditations, forest bathing and wonderful aryuvedic meals alongside wild river swims and songs around the campfire. The weekend was very well organised, at a lovely chilled pace with a great range of workshops and time to sit and connect with lovely souls. Thank you Dima, Kary, and Karen for a much needed and very wholesome weekend. I would totally recommend it and can't wait for the next one!
