“This place is truly a paradise.”

“The experience in this place has been wonderful. This place is truly a paradise; all the energy that is here, the contact with nature and the experience of being a part of nature.”

Juan Carlos, Healer, from Santiago

“I am extremely grateful. If I could come back a hundred times I would.”

“This place has given me a really safe place to really explore what’s inside of me and tackle some things that, back at home, you are told shouldn’t matter. Now I feel like I can walk through my day to day life and have the power to understand my feelings, the power to choose what feelings I´m going to feel and which ones I´m going to let go.”

Danielle, from United States

“The collaboration of the sound therapy and the deep introspection was beautiful.”

“During the first opening ceremony we had, I felt this immense love and I immediately knew that this was going to be an absolutely transforming experience for me and everybody else here. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do this retreat and to do it with these incredible other people that I got to know in a way that I haven’t known anyone else before.

Michelle, from United States
“It was a lot more than I could even dream of.”

“I feel happy and relieved that I got to experience this retreat. It was a lot more than I could even dream of. Experiencing sound therapy was very powerful, it brought feelings up that I didn’t even know were there. I have been carrying a lot of pain through these years and I finally learned how to let go that pain and now I feel free and alive.”

Mira, from Finland

“The Spiral of Light is a retreat that has given me the opportunity to grow inside.”

“The Spiral of Light is a retreat that has given me the opportunity to be in a wonderful environment, in contact with nature and that has allowed me to grow inside, discover certain fears that I had hidden and be able to transcend them. The atmosphere has been wonderful with a beautiful group of people that has been important throughout the process.”

Carolina, Healer, from Santiago
