Just wanted to thank you Natalie for the retreat, you shared and gave so much, also the food was soooo wholesome and delicious!!! I have noticed some changes within me and it feels good. I have been feeling happier ever since, a bit flat today but I know that's just the mind. I am waking up at 6.30 every morning and going for a walk and doing my breathing exercises and mental quietness before work. I think doing this this at the retreat three days in a row changed my old habits. Daniela
