"Being at a major crossroads in my life, I looked forward to attending the Healer Within Retreat for several months. Upon arriving and joining hands with everyone in the opening circle, I immediately felt I had entered another dimension. This atmosphere allowed me to take a major holistic step within myself. This was a real oasis experience; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The complete package! The food, the resort, the staff, the participants, and the leaders Nita and Bill, all came together with incredible synergy with compassion, making this a momentous experience. With Nita and Bill leading next year’s retreat, the participants are in for a life-changing week!"
“My husband and I attended this retreat at Molokai. It has transformed our life and up-lifted our spiritual standing. My dear medical colleagues, please do not miss this truly healing within – with great leadership, transformational healing activities, beautiful island, delicious healthy food. Physician – heal thyself first so you can take care of others who need you."
