A journey into self

A journey into self, an unveiling to discover deeper and deeper layers within, which then permits one to relate out from a richer place…now existence is bigger, more flavorful and textured.

A beautiful weekend of profound connection

I really appreciate that both facilitators have extensive practice, skill and experience merging the science of eastern and western philosophies. I also appreciate that Michaela is a living embodiment of her work and yet is also a business woman and wife. This adds a great degree of credibility to her as a teacher. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Wonderfully romantic

This weekend was great. It was wonderfully romantic & gave us the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives to really focus on our connection with each other. We especially loved the custom Saturday night practice given to us!!! Michaela & Steve are great & this workshop is the perfect escape.
