"I have referred about 4 people so far, to your website, telling them about…the retreats I have attended, as well as, about the others offered. You and Linda have created something truly rare, and deeply valuable. It can help change an individual’s entire way of being in the world. And, oh does the world need many more of us. After learning Qigong at the retreat, I am in love with Qigong. I realize my sense of time, while in Sugar Beach, was so present. I never thought about how many days were left, or what life would be after—I was just there-—with myself and each of the individuals in our group. Thank you again for such a beautiful experience."
