Shall we have a Santosha, Gratitude, and Wellness (streaming) Retreat in 2021

Here is what some attendees have shared about the 2019 experience:

The retreat for me was the best practice of self-care, healing, focused intention and devotion to self. Safe like-minded women. Very nurturing and knowledgeable guidance from Kyczy which offered many profound “ah-ha” moments! I went to the retreat feeling like I didn’t know how I could get to a place where I could overcome my obstacle. Very quickly into the weekend, I felt the answers flowing in. I also realized I wasn’t the only person feeling this way!  – Bethany

” I attended Kyczy’s retreat for the first time and loved the experience from start to finish. The retreat took place at Land of the Medicine Buddha, a beautiful retreat center with notably great food.  A small group of lovely women were in attendance with me.  The weekend format was varied with discussion, yoga, creative activities, and singing.  I learned from the activities, but also experienced a constructive and restorative weekend as I focused on the intentions I had set for myself.  I plan to return next year!”– Sharon M.

I left the Santosa Retreat refreshed with vital tools to strengthen my recovery and new friendships I’ll cherish forever. I can’t wait for next year!” – Eva Z.

“I find the retreat a great time to unplug and get back to myself.  Being with other like-minded women gives my strength to carry on. I found inspiration inside the teachings and the crafts are a happy place for me.   
The yoga shows me how strong I am when I take the time to listen to my body.
I hope this tradition continues.
” Lisa S.

We climb mountains to get to this retreat! Thank you, Kyczy, for your beautiful creation. A powerful retreat formula of sacred surroundings, healing energies, yoga practices that align physical attunement with soul-nourishing fun, and your personal magic touch. This all adds up to me feeling better than I have in months and already looking forward to the next retreat. Peace, Love, and Gratitude” Pam L.

“Food is amazing and why am I so full – it’s vegetarian!? So Yum! Love the wisdom and nurturing from instructor Kyczy and oh my the yoga Nidra!! ” _ Sherry G.
