"I had the most peaceful and rejuvenating experience! Gazing out over the hilly landscape at sunset as the farm animals roam is truly stunning. The mindfulness exercise was grounding and prepared me to creatively engage my senses. Samantha facilitates the class beautifully, making you feel so comfortable to explore your emotions honestly. The activities combined with the company and setting are just perfection. I'm so thankful for our time there."   ALISSA
