Comments from previous participants...
"The bell sounds and we gather
to gain further insight into ourselves. Healing practices, supportive
environment and bright smiles. All my New Year's dreams came true after
the retreat on Quadra. So, far, I have broken through blockages on this
enchanting retreat and I look forward to the many gifts to come."
In silent ground of being,
trees grow, water rushes,
light smiles, I am.
