What happy clients say

What can I say? Thank you!!!!!!!!!! I feel like I have found myself again in this group.  What you have created here is very special by creating a safe environment that both challenges and nurtures all of us.  The last group in particular was a privilege to be a part of. Seeing all of us including myself grow within the group, is a credit to you as the facilitator, thank you. Kaye, Librarian and Bliss Creator

I arrived at the retreat, tightly constrained, intensely focused and bound by the routine and rhythm of busy city life. I was hesitant about what lay ahead.

The week was warm, awakening and transformative, as I opened to the nourishing possibility of genuine engagement with others and learnt from the generosity of spirit of each individual within the group. The experiences of others resonated with my experiences, and in sharing I found that I was experiencing profound changes to my usual ways. It is like, I was invited to ride on a magic carpet that transported me to a new place where I am now energetically  available, to explore new possibilities with an open heart.

For me the group taught me how to get in touch with my feelings, which was a new and exciting experience for me. I didn’t really know how to express myself prior to the retreat and when I did it was always for the outside not from the inside. What was really interesting was that once I learnt how to express myself I felt much more freedom in expressing myself and more confident within myself. The group also taught me the importance of really listening to others and their feelings and how important eye contact is. This was a new experience for me and one that I want to continue to develop and use on a regular basis with my family and friends. John | HR Manager

 

Over a week since I returned from the retreat I feel more at home with myself. I feel less subject to the influence of others, wanting to please them or need their opinions.
I feel more confident and so am valuing myself, from being validated in the group for who I am. My body feels more supple and strong. I feel more alive to myself and more able to say no to meet my needs.
Thank you so much Leila. The retreat was an invaluable and wonderful experience.

One word “Openness which is indescribable in many ways. • My body feels open if this is possible, I feel taller not afraid of what life will throw at me, but stronger in myself and restored. • I have a great sense of relief, hope and peace within myself. • I feel like I have found the real me again, which I accept fully and rejoice in myself. • My tears were released on the retreat, they for me represent the opening just letting them flow and to be able to experience not only the great sadness but the joy of being able to let them go. • The combination of the theme of Chakra’s, yoga and group work all made this possible and I know my readiness to work on these things helped. • I also learnt how important, no essential it is for me to have a week to myself in a nurturing environment, to refresh and recharge. Life changing – Thank you! Highlights Too many to describe: • The venue especially the Wanterland, what an amazing setting. • Yoga each day, I had a sense of excitement when walking down the path to yoga and at the end a feeling of deep inner peace. • Group work the whole process and the safety of being part of a group. • My morning walks, magical. • Meals, the joyful company. • Quiet time. • Bali, experiencing a different culture especially the chanting on an evening, the flowers and the majestic volcanoes. • The Chakra’s, something very new for me. • The friendship. • Having a man in the group.

Thank you Leila for your guidance, wisdom and compassion during this past week.
As I write this I feel a deep sense of optimism and peace not felt for a long time.
I was completely supported and heard when sharing my story and opening my heart space with our group.
It was an incredible opportunity to take the time to remove myself from the distractions of life and overcome a fear of unpacking “old thoughts and patterns” and to trust your gentle guidance.
My heart space is sparkling green. Lilly | Naturopath

I highly recommend Leila’s 7 day Bali retreat. I had been going to Leila’s women’s group for 2 years and decided to treat myself to a week away on retreat. Not until I returned home did I realise I had been suffering from burnout. My work as a psychotherapist, seeing clients regularly, being present, empathic, and patient had taken it’s toll on me. Reflecting back, now, a month later, I am so much more present with clients and with myself. I’ve noticed little things like laughing more, being less scattered. I feel more lively and I notice satisfaction with my work.
