This was a beautiful experience that I shared with incredible people. Siggy and Etienne put so much love into this program, and it created an intimate space to open up.

The retreat gave me a space to connect with myself, to accept myself and explore new ideas for my healing. It gave me new levels of understanding in the process of simply observing and acknowledging my emotions. This deeply nourishing time has inspired me to seek out more experiences like Siggy offered. I am so thankful for it!

I am so thankful for having shared this quality time together. Siggy creates a context of freedom where you can connect with yourself, others, the birds, the sun, the South of Spain, Europe, the Earth. In a soft way, without pressure. Everything is okay. A nice combination of humanity and nature. Swimming in the natural springs, having healthy meals. A community feeling. Delicious. Namaste.

Words can’t describe what the retreat has done for me. I booked the retreat because I felt a need to run away. I felt on the edge and unable to make sense. I arrived alone and being here has given me back my sense of self. I have been embraced by the Eco-village and feel like I am truly at ease and for that I will always be grateful. So thank you for giving me my sense of calm back and a knowing that I can be elsewhere and not feel incomplete. I now feel one me again. Thank you!

Siggy and Etienne they have a wonderful place to give a powerful retreat. I explored important things about myself with them. Please enjoy the singing session at the retreat, it is a lot of fun to play other people as an instrument.

This was my very first retreat. We were guided by a very experienced teacher. I have gained many insights. I found the program to be well balanced and I could relate to the answers to questions asked to Siggy about the practice. I am eager now to learn more about the mind-body connection. Thank you Siggy and Etienne for the guidance on my path!
