Everything on the retreat was great! Beautiful spaces, meaningful programming, the guided meditation walks, Byron Katie discussions, the yoga, the sauna, the mountain brook, the music, the harmonium, the food~all opportunities were well-paced and worked well together. I will recommend it to others and hope to return.
I loved how with each minute, I settled into living ‘off the grid’. Loved being in nature, building a fire in our cabin, being fed delicious and healthy food by Mer who is so funny, irreverent, talented, and oh so kind, yoga, walks, time together with the group, the early hike in noble silence, and of course, your calm and healing leadership.
I am still feeling great peace and ease lingering from the retreat weekend. The schedule was a good balance of free time and group time. Yurt was comfy and just right. LOVE noble silence time. Quiet alone time was respected and I felt no pressure to make small talk if I did not want to. Amazing food! Thank you so much again for creating this space for retreat, reflection, nature, good health. I’m already thinking of who I know that might need some time there!
Everything worked for me! The structure of the day with retreat activities, free time, meal times, gave a continuous flow of good energy throughout the day. So what do I mean by good energy: Continuity, Peacefulness & Mindfulness, the mindfulness, being captured by the Noble Silence. I truly felt “refreshed” in every way, through the physical aspect; meditations, sharing, and the beautiful environment, and the meals!! Much Love & Gratitude to you as your special spirit has enriched us all!
The space is amazing. It feels so clean, spacious, luxurious, natural and right. Excellent food and supportive teachings.
The meals were phenomenal. What worked for me on my retreat was the food, the schedule/timing, the sauna, a variety of yoga and the bunk accommodations.
I have enjoyed this chance to breathe and let go! Great food, yoga, nature time, and small sharing sessions.
The retreat was energizing, relaxation, and thought-provoking. The yoga was beautiful. I learned about myself and have the skills to take good care of myself. Thank you for being part of my amazing journey to loving myself.
This retreat exceeded my expectations. The pace was great, I loved trying new things, loved my time in the sauna and in the yurt. The food was excellent, the circle time was relaxing and the yoga enjoyable.
Nurture through Nature is a true hidden gem in Denmark, Maine. I had a life-transforming experience while there for a retreat. I highly, without hesitation, recommend going. I am already looking forward to my next visit and I just returned from there! Amazing experience! Thank you to Jen and Mer!
