Testimonials from past participants

"Briya has an intuitive sense of how to respond to people in a group setting so they feel a deep sense of belonging and being welcome. She has a gentle way of encouraging healing and offering suggestions towards one's wellness. I am deeply grateful for any time spent with Briya, but especially for her sage advice and gentle guidance. I would also like to add something about her ability to hold space -- going with the flow while providing structure and delicious food. Thank you!"

"Dearest Briya, Thanks so much for holding space for us and giving us so much. Your example of being both in spirit and in your humanness is an inspiration to me. I absolutely loved the fire ceremony; the pure clearing energy of the fire was transformative and I can’t wait to work with this more. I’d been working with light body in my meditations and guiding others, so it was super cool to experience those ceremonies that connected me both to our light bodies and our physical, mental and emotional bodies. In love & gratitude."

"I loved our retreat Briya! I’m so happy to have met other like minded people  that I felt a true connection with. I miss our group already! The food and the setting were so beautiful and I loved that we all pitched in with meal prep and chores. It felt like we were taking care of our space and each other as a group. 

[...]  Thanks for being such a steady calm presence. I also loved the lightness you brought the whole time, with your sense of humour, and how much you love to laugh! It’s contagious and it helps get me out of my serious mind :) Also, I LOVED learning about the ancient practices and experiencing the fire ceremony. I felt more grounded and connected to the earth when I returned home. 

I think there are several reasons for that but learning about the ancient traditions of those who came before us (and that so many still use!) somehow felt so comforting/reassuring to my body. Finally, I like that we balanced silence with group activities. The group activities pushed me out of my comfort zone [...] and it was just what I needed. That’s all for now, thank you again" - CP
