I want to join this retreat, but do not want to travel alone... 

A lot of people feel this way! As someone who has traveled the globe many times alone, I encourage others to connect with the joy of solo traveling. Moments of solitude exploring faraway magical lands can lead to precious moments in which we connect with our heart's truth. However, we are here to support your journey and if you prefer or wish to travel with someone, we will do our best to connect you with another retreat guest to coordinate travel with.
