You never really know what you’re going to get when it comes to Nicole’s teachings. Even when a general theme is set she allows wiggle room for questions that arise within a group, all of whom seem to be catalysts of compassion for whatever confusion or chaos we’re subconsciously bringing to the retreat as individuals. That said, I’ve been on a few getaways with Nicole but this one, nestled among the majestic redwoods with altars and shrines situated throughout the hiking trails truly gave me a feeling of being deeply held and nourished. Not as far down the mountain as Tassajara, more into the woods than Haramara; Land of Medicine Buddha is truly where it's at. - Linlee Allen
