Couple's Retreat Testimonials

Have just completed the couples retreat and wanted to thank you so much for a truly wonderful weekend. We have been married for 25 years, have a wonderful relationship and always looking to evolve and grow together. Didn't know what to expect from the weekend but found it to be truly relaxing, spiritually connecting and very practical. Absolutely loved the food, which just added to the nurturing environment and have kept up with the Qi Gong classes also. Friends and clients have been saying how good we both look. Would thoroughly recommend this course to any couple looking to just connect and spend some quality time with each other and remind yourselves what's important. Cathy, you have a lovely gentle way about you and it made it such a pleasure learning from you and your team.

"As it was our 34th Wedding Anniversary we decided to enrol for the Couples Retreat for a quiet but special break away. We'd read a little about "Tantra" many years ago but really had no idea and had received no formal instruction. The weekend was absolutely life-changing for us in our relationship. We believe we've been given a precious gift, enhancing our relationship and bringing us closer together in our coupleship than we ever could have imagined. Cathy and her team presented information to us in such a beautiful, respectful and professional manner. It was a truly magical experience and we'd recommend the retreat, workshops and indeed everything at the Sanctuary to any couple devoted to enriching their relationship".

What a day!!!
Just Cathy's, Jo's and Dom's presence was a guarantee for a fantastic and memorable time.
Cathy's Magic (CM) brought us all to our individual best to share with such beautiful and worthy people.
I felt HUGE inside, inviting, accommodating, warm, "cotton-ed", accepting, understanding, nurturing... it's (Tantrically) endless.
Still settling un/conscious impressions and discoveries of own (and others') emotions, awareness, understanding, Love.
And I asked myself: "What with am I entering the journey of Tantra, what am I giving into it ...?"
Two words came ......
Telling my "Sunday" experiences to an "enlightened" friend he described my "deployment" with the EXACTLY the same two words:
What a beautiful living.
Thank you all.
Thank you CM
