What do past participants in Living Whole Ávila have to say about their experience?
“Living Whole Ávila was more than a just a glimpse of life’s possibilities – it was and continues to be a well-defined path. If you are looking for a transformative, life-affirming experience, surrounded by like-minded seekers, supported by wonderful facilitators, Living Whole Ávila is a beautiful place to begin. By the way, the retreat works equally well for couples as for individuals.”Jon CoppelmanRisk management consultant based in Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA, specializing in workers compensation
“Nice experience with loving people. Excellent and tasty food. Immersion in fun sound baths. Beautiful surroundings. Different approaches to medicine and physical and mental health. Made with love.”Toni Real FloritReiki Master, angel worker, translator-interpreter, Mallorca, Spain.
“It’s now three months since I left Living Whole Ávila 2017 and I can still feel the warmth and camaraderie of those who experienced the magic of this program with me. The Living Whole Immersion Retreat is just as it states, a retreat that joins the mind/body/spirit; where the quality of the lectures, the movement and spiritual sessions taking place in beautiful surroundings with offerings of perfectly crafted plant-based meals makes this a one-of-a-kind experience. Here you are able to reach your inner self, the real self, and reconnect. Each day the Posada greets you with swaying cypress towering over the mountainside, warm sun, and the scent of heather as the perfect hosts Kathryn and David welcome you. If you have one opportunity this year to re-engage, this is the place.”Susan E. DeRosaMS CMHC, Clinical Mental Health Counselor in a Psychiatric Clinical Practice and Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Connecticut, USA
