My daughter and I joined Amy and her fabulous team for this transformative and beautiful retreat experience. Neither of us had ever done anything like this before and we were a little apprehensive, which proved to be completely unnecessary. We are both thrilled that we went and hope to go again next year! I want to bring everyone I care about with me! Amy is a delightful and gifted teacher and guide. She gave of herself freely, openly, and honestly. She gently and kindly encouraged others to do the same. She created a safe space for all of us to explore and participate as much as we wanted to. Five pilates sessions left me feeling more in my body then I can ever remember. Every inch of the estate was gorgeous, the food amazing. I could go on and on describing the special precious moments we experienced. We will always treasure the memories of this retreat.

Fabulous! Amy is more than just an organizer par excellence! Her warmth and endless thoughtfulness along with her ability to carry off a stellar retreat where everyone felt sincerely welcomed sets her in a class by herself. She worked so hard to plan every detail, and then rode through various glitches with grace and charm. Amy's gracious hospitality made everyone feel welcome and important. Her partner, Paul, was a wonderful presence with his informative myths and astrology. His cooking friend, Emma, was lovely. Her participation and delicious food added greatly to the whole experience. I can't wait until the next Enliven the Spirit, and hope perhaps Amy can set one up for spring or early summer.

I believe everyone who attended this trip had a delightful time, which indeed, enlivened the spirit. The setting was gorgeous and tranquil, perfect for the short hikes, pilates activities, tuning into your own growth and getting to know the others. The venue was beautiful and very well appointed. Emma prepared amazingly beautiful and delicious meals and the time shared at the table, as well as the optional group activities, lent themselves to interacting with the other participants. It was a pleasure to talk with and get to know these folks from different parts of the Bay Area and world. The optional private half-hour sessions with Amy and Paul were also informative... I only wish I had taken notes to help me remember the details of what we discussed! The trip to the Penny Royal Goat Farm and Winery was also a treat, as I hadn‘t been up in this area of California before. I am very glad that I was able to be part of the trip this year and would recommend it to others in the future. Amy and her team planned and executed a relaxing, informative and renewing weekend!
