"As always Surya teaching is a perfectly placed filled with wisdom, clarity and humour. The retreat was brilliant, the team allowing the space for people to meet themselves with love, honesty and openness. I was able to spend time deepening my practice in a supportive environment with kindred souls." Sarah 
"I started the retreat looking into pool A soaking up the rich natural surroundings, and found the space to work at a much deeper level withtpool B." Anne 
"I’ve come to the retreat in a bit of a confused state amidst a lot of upheaval happening in my life. I’m still in the same state but I feel a lot of softness, openness and acceptance of how things are. This is what I want to work on. I thought the group was wonderful, the teaching insightful and spot-on to where I needed to go. The retreat was beautifully put together. The rooms, the food, all very thoughtful and caring." Thank you 
"Last year I commented that I’d found more questions and answers and I worked on some of the more important ones over the year. This year I simply found the stillness and the sitting very beneficial and powerful. As a result I now view the questions as simply heightened curiosity and issues make more sence from this perspective and from a puzzled “must work this out“ perspective. I’ve rediscovered that keeping my meditation more simple is more effective than if I overcomplicate it. So thanks a million for another stimulating and transformative week." Peter 
"I found the simplicity of practice we experienced helped me to stay balanced through the following weeks." Kirsty
