YOLO Retreat Testimonials

“The incredible, empowering and life changing moment for me came through the ‘mindful’ activities. It was in these moments that I discovered and was introduced to my sense of ‘self’, a former stranger, a detachment from my awareness – blind to my own slow destruction. Mindfulness helped me ‘meet’ me and it made me cry to discover ‘me’ and love it. I am my new best friend. Xx Thank you!”
