“Attending Wendy & Kathleen’s Fall In Love With Life retreat was exactly what I needed to reconnect with myself, nature, and my creativity! Highly recommended for anyone searching to energize and reawaken their awareness to the beauty of life and needing a safe place to share and let go.”

“Wonderful guidance of deeper inner heart & nature connections! Wendy & Kathleen are very synced towards communicating openness of body, mind & spirit allowing oneself to truly let go of negative emotions that we sometimes hold onto unwaveringly! The Nature meditations & mandala crystal healings

rocked! I felt & still feel the spaciousness of lightness & healing these two Goddesses radiate so innately”

“Two loving, kind, knowledgeable individuals who will do everything possible to guide and help one grow. The whole experience was incredible beyond verbal description.”
