Why People Love Our Retreats

The land, the plants, the insects, the birds, the people, the food, the accommodations, the wisdom, the music, the magic, was such a joy, and super inspiring.

Jessia P for PLANT SPIRITS IN THE GARDEN

It was a magical and memorable weekend, truly soul healing. We were lucky with the dry and sunny wether and were able to be outdoors all the time. Being immersed in a beautiful lush nature and so many medicinal plants, bird songs and great people left me uplifted and inspired. I learned tons from Susanna and Sam who shared not only their knowledge but also themselves as we sat together during the meals and the evening fire so selflessly. All the structures and accommodations were esthetically gorgeous and very comfortable. I loved that for all the designs, inside and outside, only natural materials were used. Thank you for creating this incredible experience!

Petrina P for OUR GREEN RELATIONS

It all weaved together so beautifully, leaving us feeling connected, nourished, and with a whole host of new tools to keep us well all winter long!

Jessica P for ROOTS, SONG, PRAYER & BREATH

I fell in love with this place from the first time! The atmosphere, energy, organization, people, knowledge are all at the highest level!

Olga Y for ROOTS, SONG, PRAYER & BREATH

Everything was so well structured and thought out!! What a beautiful place to share a weekend with the plants and good people. Can't wait to visit again.

Matthew J for  OUR GREEN RELATIONS

I just returned from Wild Yoga with Rebecca Wildbear and it was beyond anything I could have anticipated. My mind was cleared, my body was reconnected to nature and it has helped uncover a version of me that I didn’t know existed.. I walk freely into my new life with yoga grounding me and the trees and my dreams providing a new light to help guide me through this journey. Thank you Rebecca!!!

Leigh Dixon for WILD YOGA

It was a magical, soul nourishing and lighthearted experience especially while learning, exploring and healing some of the most vulnerable parts of myself. To this day, I am using the exercises I learned and enjoying a more intimate and confident experience with my voice and those I share it with. This retreat was most definitely a mile marker in my life experience. I would recommend it to anyone who yearns to transform and step out into the world a more empowered person!
