I want to thank you all for this amazing experience. I feel truly blessed to have spent the week here immersed into your way of living. The love and authenticity I’ve seen and felt here has been uncanny. You all have truly opened my eye in ways that is hard to describe with words. – Hollie, 2018
This place is a magical getaway from the stress of everyday life.
