"Such a powerful week among compassionate, loving people! My family spent the week experiencing Real Love and peace."

"I use the tools I learned in Crestone every day to bring more peace into my life and love to my family."

-Lynn V., West Palm Beach, FL

"Crestone was an experience that I've been wanting for years. Besides adventure and fun, the deep spiritual connection I received hasn't left me. My highlight was the Native American sweat lodge, the purification helped my health, body and soul, and the experience helped me overcome fears to this very day. I encourage you to enjoy, it's worth it!"

-Robin A., West Palm Beach, FL

"It is with incredible enthusiasm that I recommend a retreat in Crestone, Co with Sari and friends. I brought my three daughters, ages 10-22, in 2016. The family bond that was created during this week together was amazing. Individually and as a family we faced challenges and experienced joy, always feeling supported and loved. The growth and self-confidence my family gained was tremendous. I recommend this adventure to anyone regardless of age."

-Dennis M., Jupiter, FL

"Deep, intense, constructive, and profoundly transformative...This was one of the most life-changing weeks of my life. The compassion and direction we received throughout the week was like a decade worth of therapy, friendship, and spirituality. The trip was well organizedand the different venues we visited were met with people that truly care about the well-being of humanity and every person that walks through their door. I am forever grateful for this experience."
