Turning Inward, a retreat that will lead you home.

You will search the world over and find no one more deserving of your love than yourself

The above quote is our interpretation of a Buddhist saying that speaks to our quest for love, connection, truth and the realization that we've always possessed the answer, that it's always been within. Join yoga instructor Cynthia LaRoche, meditation teacher Banni Bunting and crystal healer Angela Goodstein on an incredible journey to self. Retreat for a week of yoga, discussion, workshops, yoga nidra, meditation, excursions, crystal healing, incredible food and luxurious time in the sand and sun.
