As my first experience with “The Adventures of Laurel” my first take away has been the diversity of participants and their willingness to work together to share a unique life experience for most. It is a compliment to you for fostering an environment demonstrating a sense of peace, love, and mindfulness. No one felt left out or left behind. Strangers became friends and former participants of other retreats celebrated joyful reunions. To me, this was a true testament to the spiritual aspect of yoga.
