There are not enough words of gratitude for such a life changing 5 days. Even when I was frustrated, I reveled in the experience. When I realized through your presentations and discussions that I alone caused my suffering with my overthinking, overplanning, and over striving, it truly was a revelation. Over the years difficult relationships with some had caused my heart to be two sizes too small (like the Grinch) and now I feel an expansiveness and softening in my heart. Like for many, Solterreno has a special place in my heart. Thank you.
Excellent heart centered experience that far exceeded m y expectations. The structure was supportive and with each day another layer of knowledge was added culminating with a thorough understanding of the mindfulness foundations and the parallels with MBSR. Even though it was was my first retreat, I can't imagine another retreat unfolding in such a special way and I am already planning to attend the next one!
Training Staff feedback
Bodhin, you and your team create such a warm, safe and inviting space to learn and grow! One of the things I appreciated most was Monique's approach to yoga and how she guided our bodies into "shapes" instead of telling us "place your leg here and your arm here etc...) there was a lot of space to find out what worked for each individual. Jazz had such a calm and grounded presence that it was easy to go on the journey with him. There are no negatives.
