Frequently Asked Questions
"How is transportation arranged?"
All transportation is each participant's responsibility including border crossing and passport requirements.
"I'm thinking about coming alone...is this ok?"
Absolutely! YES YES YES! Going to a retreat alone can be extremely powerful and transformative. Common feedback we also receive is the welcoming, safe and connected vibe we create and the relationships you create on retreats sometimes turn in to lifelong friends.

Another big YES! We welcome women of all levels and complete beginners too! Retreats are a great place to learn or to solidify established practices and routines.

Yes, a retreat information email with all this information will be sent out closer to the retreat date.
