“I’ve been coming to Quiet Mind, Open Heart retreats for over a decade; they encompass very approachable dharmic teachings. All three teachers — Kelly, Marissa and Brooke — are sensitive and accommodating to the students, allowing space for growth and connection, as well as self reflection and silence. They teach that everything on your path, is your path: challenge is opportunity, and vulnerability is strength. I highly recommend this retreat for nourishment and spiritual evolution.” —Dana Wills
