Retreat Testimonials:

Thank-you Linda for a wonderful retreat.  It was a meaningful and sensitively handled experience as well as very informative and enriching.  It was a truly rare opportunity to examine our inner fears and thoughts associated with the inevitable - death. In saying this, I came out of the workshop feeling positive and energized.  Thank you again.   PK

Linda is a remarkably warm, heart-based facilitator. Her professionalism and gentle compassion, holding the space for rich conversations, feeding in just enough to allow participants to bring out their own story and weaving this tricky subject into a fabric so very rich and soulful.  RB

Beginning at the dawn of the day, this expansive, fascinating, honest and playful perspective on death and dying turns the grim reaper into a benevolent, gentle chaperone and throws an invigorating new light on living. I'm seeing my everyday world with new eyes of wonder and I want to keep that view for the rest of my days!!   BD

The event sounded confronting and I didn’t know what to expect. But I left with an increased awareness of life, of my path, of my invulnerability and was electrified. Linda created a beautiful and safe environment for me to speak that which is unspoken, to let go and to be easy and grow. I felt the love of my father, who committed suicide, as intensely as ever. If just this event name makes you curious, do yourself a favour and get to know more about it before it’s too late!   JA
