I attended number of detox/ spiritual retreats in the past, but I have to admit that the three days spent with Alaknanda and Ihar and our group of likeminded people has exceeded my expectations! We had amazing food prepared for us from scratch and charged with love by a beautiful person and chef; we participated in soulful yoga classes right outside on the soft grass; we indulged in absolutely amazing aromatherapy/energy massages; we explored ourselves by engaging in various deep meditations; and finally, my very favorite activity, we received a powerful group channeling led by our leader, Ihar. This retreat reminded how alike we all human beings are and how important it is to belong to a community, especially when one finds herself on a path of spiritual growth and exploration. There really is no need to feel alone and isolated, when you can find a safe and welcoming space to connect with others and to create a sacred space shared by many. I highly recommend Family of Light's retreat to anyone who is yearning for relaxation, self-exploration, or inspiration to continue on one's spiritual path!
I recommend this trip to anyone who is doing any type of soul searching, feeling confusion or discord in their life, or just wants to detox before the summer and relax from the fast pace life-style. Upon completion of this detox retreat, one will have a better understanding of it because it can not really be described in words, it has to be felt through spiritual and physical means. I feel very grateful and honored to have had such a spiritual, mind-opening, and relaxing event. I can truly say that, I now possess more knowledge on essential oils and their uses, yoga, meditations, and living an organic life-style. It made me realize that you can always do better, to stay inspired and driven, to have a deep love for humanity, to always give back, and to find your true purpose in life. After the retreat when I got home, I felt lighter, high energy, and most importantly I felt whole. The staff was extremely courteous to all, always available, and very knowledgeable. Blessings to the Family of Light and to all of the beautiful strangers who have now turned into friends. I am ever so grateful for reading the email and for the beautiful gift of this unforgettable detox retreat!
I expected a lot from this retreat, but I gained so much more then I expected! Seeing Alaknanda's and Ihar's spiritual family and truly living the spiritual life for 3 full days was a life changing for me. I've encountered spiritualism, meditated and did yoga before, but this was the first time in my life that I felt spirituality and seen how it can be incorporated and balanced with everyday life. Meditation under 6ft copper pyramids was something I wish everyone could experience. The second one closes its eyes under it, that very instant moment one goes deep into meditation. It's almost unreal. The complete introduction to the essential oils and their benefits completely changed my life and the influence I could have on things I never thought I could change or control. Amazing retreat where every person can experience great mind and soul expansion. Alaknanda, Ihar, their son Brandon and Alaknanda's mom set such beautiful spiritual family standards and offer so much more than just detox retreat in the nature. Amazing experience that opens so many new life paths!
