As this was the first retreat for me, I had a very interesting and enriching time. I enjoyed the sessions, also if they were kind of hard from time to time, the food and the lessons. It was a honor to meet you all and I am really appreciating having had this possibility. I’ve learned precious things for my life. Thank you again. AD
The retreat was necessary for me, it was intense and emotional for me but I have been well guided and taken care of so that I could go deep, heal and rejuvenate and be completely myself. Thanks so much for doing this and letting me be me.TFR
I’ve just returned from Bermalva’s Winter Retreat at her peaceful country home — my second Winter Retreat. The season of snow and cold offers an interior time, an opportunity to look within, to learn, reflect, and grow. I recommend this Retreat. It’s intense. It’s primarily in silence. Teaching sessions, however, encourage discussions where… the exchange gives us the challenging, welcoming opportunity for deep reflection on what we actually do believe. Throughout the weekend, Bermalva creates and sustains a safe, supportive environment, which is hugely important. Interested in exploring your inner self, learning about your Journey, doing yoga, meditation, outdoorsy meditation activities? This could be for you.KF
