What people are saying…..

‘Hiring the Woodland Retreat for the first Cultural Emergence Foundation course on the Isle of Wight could have been no better choice. It started with all the care and detail  Maitri and her team had put in the decoration of the site and the Bell tent. It turned this little woodland into a place of magic and possibility. The yoga room, kitchen, food counter with extra tap, the fireplace under tarp, outdoor seating and surroundings were perfect for our small group nature connection, sense wandering and discussion exercises. We’d love to be back and hope that others can enjoy this place for transformation as well.’
