Testimonies: I don’t know where to begin or how to express how profoundly life changing the Xinalani retreat was for me. Led by Rachael and Tom, two of the most talented people I know, the weeklong retreat was perfect in every aspect. Xinalani itself, is one of the most special and alive places I have ever been to. I cannot think of a better location to have chosen to explore oneself and connect with earth and breath. I reflect regularly on how happy I felt there surrounded and nourished by wonderful people, food, accommodations, nature and new friends. I can only describe it by saying I basically spent a week blissed out on peace, love and light. I will never loose that feeling or gift.
I went on the retreat with few expectations except to get away and relax. I had not taken a yoga class in 15 years and figured I would go when I felt like it and to the beach when I didn’t. I felt like it so much that I never missed a class. Tom was exceptional at making every class seem like it was tailor made for you regardless of your level. I craved it more as each day passed. He is a remarkable teacher and keeps you mindfully engaged two times a day doing more yoga than I thought I could ever enjoy let alone want more of. It comes from his heart and his passion for teaching is crystal clear.
Rachael is one of the most gifted, intuitive healers I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Her guided classes and mediations provided me with a wealth of knowledge and insight. I dove deeper into me and connecting to earther and creator than I ever have. It never felt forced or fake. Rachael’s style of teaching is both straight forward and informative. There was no judgement by her on how much you participated, just unconditional love for all of us. She taught me so many things. One of the many things she said that resonated was “You can’t search for what you already are, you must search for your limitless self.” It is a search that I know for me will never end.
If you want to get out of your box, Rachael and Tom will definitely get you a million miles away. I certainly can’t thank them enough for getting me out of mine:) From Laurie in Santa Cruz
