This retreat was hosted by Una and Patrick. It was an excellent way to structure the year ahead with goal setting via journaling, meditation and group work. The setting at Bodhi Tree was perfect offering daily yoga and delicious healthy food and juices/smoothies. I was also able to connect with an inspiring group of people who I look forward to seeing again!
