Don’t just take our word for it…. Here us what some of our 2022 retreaters said…
“ From the minute I stepped in the door, I felt at home. It was a lovely long weekend of meditation, restorative yoga, meeting wonderful people and being nurtured and nourished with incredible plant-based food. I came home feeling inspired, able to take on the world and generally like a huge weight had lifted. Thank you, what a blessing your retreat was.” Alex
“It is challenging to find the words to express how amazing my experience was on this retreat. It surpassed all of my expectations. Kate and Cam are inspiring teachers who provide such a beautiful way of connecting to your true self. Every detail of the retreat was attended to with intention and love. The setting was perfect to relax, and the environment was one of total acceptance. There was space for quiet and personal growth, as well as space for connection, joy, love, and laughter. Give this gift to yourself, accept this opportunity, and come to this retreat.” Annie
“ I had an absolutely amazing life-changing experience. I came away with a clearer understanding of who I am to the core and the time away gave me clarify and the motivation and confidence to change my course of life and start a small business. Amazing hosts, amazing moments, amazing experience. Highly recommend it. I'll be back every year now!!”
“I love the retreats at Cape South. They are truly nourishing for the mind, body and soul. I always feel like a different person when I leave. Kate has powerful teachings to learn from and her yoga, Qi Gong and meditations are amazing. The property is beautiful, and food is very nourishing and all the staff are so welcoming. I am a true addict and it has become a second home.” Amanda Tyler (Reiki Practitioner & Resillance Coach)
