What Professional Retreat participants have to say:

I’m leaving the Ashram filled with Light and knowing that my commitment to my personal journey will also enrich my role as a professional.
Mona Afary, Executive Director of a non-profit center

When I first came to the Ashram I thought I had to give my work up and do something completely new. Now I know that if I keep going through this process of honouring and celebrating the feminine – and being more fierce about it – then I can continue doing the work that is life-giving for me, that is connected to my purpose.
Brenna Atnikov, Consultant

It’s been amazing doing my work at the Ashram. I see the deer every morning from my snug cabin and fall asleep to the sound of the creek. It was the perfect fit for me.
Dana Reinhardt, Professional Chef & Restaurant Consultan
