    Kind words from our Retreaters

    "Thank you for bringing us all together and creating our collective India. Perhaps how we see the world or our place in this world. Perhaps how we feed ourselves or how we feed our soul. Perhaps simply how we relax into the ebb and flow of life. We are forever grateful!​"

    Dr. Amie Jew, Louisana

    "The India retreat was a great adventure! Well-planned, well-conceived and pulled off with grace and creativity. It had so many parts and Sunita did an amazing job of inspiring us, feeding us, teaching us, caring for us and joining us on many outings that were educational and exposed us to nature, history, culture and the power we each have to make the world a better place. It was truly a wonderful experience with a great group of people."

    Dr. Ellen Jacobsen, Chicago

    " I not only learned about which foods are best for my body, but it was also transformational in terms of overall wellness for body, mind and spirit."

    – Beth Burns, Las Vegas

     

    " We saw so many "slices" of India, truly a trip of a lifetime!"

    – Maureen Miz, Chicago
