Testimonial from Kim

Overall feedback
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.

Testimonial
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.

Great. My intention was to deepen my own practice as well as to take initial steps in learning how to pass on the possibility of the gift of mindfulness to others, and both of those intentions were met.

TT1 online August 2020 

As always it was extremely well organised and I felt very held and taken care of. I always felt supported and even though I had taken the 'same' retreat in person last year I gained more insights and really felt like my practice was deepened.
Of course I missed the beautiful Solterreno but…
