 “The Heart-based Meditation Retreat is a priceless investment in personal growth. I’ve taken many self-development courses in my life and none have been so profoundly touching. Paul Dugliss is a gifted teacher and guide who will open your heart to the possibility of your greatest potential.”   – P.B.

“An amazing week of inner growth and connection to consciousness at depths I have never experienced before. Thank you Paul, Sandra, and David for creating a safe and healing space.”  – C.M.G.

“I have done so many yoga retreats where I have done some extreme things and the restfulness that came to me through this retreat process is golden.  I am super grateful because I have an awareness now about how restfulness can be such a healing agent in my life and in my constitution. Most of all the nervous system which I felt depleted feels so strong, clear and balanced.”

Kelly Haskee

“I received so many blessings, insights and lessons… My heart has been completely transformed, it has expanded so much I don’t even know how to describe it, but I feel it and I feel so incredibly blessed and so grateful.”

Cat Cornell

Massage Therapist, Massage Therapy Instructor

“I have been transformed again, and I just feel so much love and so full of love.  It is just so wonderful to think how you can become family with people in such a short period of time. I experienced a filling up of love beyond anything else and that is really what matters to me is being able to give love and receive love. I want to take that with me wherever I go, to whoever I meet.”
