“It has brought a lot of peace and joy into my life, and introduced me to a community of like-minded people... I am more grounded, more resilient, and more philosophical about events in my life.”

“This course brought me peace with my inner self, my mind, and the people around me. Just using these techniques really helps a lot and gets me through the day.”

“The main change I've noticed is a very welcome sense of peace... I sleep better, my relationships have improved, I love myself more. I'm choosing to eat better and exercise more and all with more enjoyment. I'm learning to notice, love, appreciate and be more grateful. A better, happier life is being led.”

‘Coming on a retreat allowed me to see myself in a different way – my true self started to appear.  Learning techniques helps me feel more at peace, calm and able to deal with life’s stresses, and to drop expectations.  It is all perfect as it is.’

‘The immense value of connecting as a group is pure gold. Being able to share experiences and hear about the journey of others is way more helpful than I could’ve hoped for. Joining the individual elements of the group together created a powerful authentic honest and real retreat.’

‘Nurturing experience filled with informative helpful suggestions in a relaxed atmosphere, great nutritional food….. Feeling frazzled when I arrived and relaxed and calm when leaving. Highly recommended. Lovely peaceful setting.’ Jeanette
‘This weekend has quite unexpectedly, reunited me with a depth of the practice that I had become disconnected from. The Bright Path teachers held the space so beautifully for us to explore, express + enjoy the awesome practice of ascension.  I feel inspired, and excited to continue. Thank you so much for everything! I will be back! Gemma
