I had been feeling very low and had been struggling for a very long time with my self-image and self-esteem.
When winter arrives my struggles usually intensify so this year I decided to do something active about it. It is also the last month of the year and I really wanted to go into the new year with a fresher mindset.
I liked where it was located and I liked that it was a women’s one on one retreat.
Pingel’s description of the retreat and what it offered really spoke to me more than any other retreat I had looked into while researching, and it became pretty clear to me after speaking to her that that was a retreat I wanted to try out.
What I liked the most was all the incredible knowledge I got from speaking to Pingel and doing her workshops. It was exactly what I had needed and I am so happy and grateful I listened to my gut and went along with it.
I also liked how beautiful and idyllic the place was, and how good and at ease I felt all the time. Pingel and Peter really are a wonderful couple and both of them made it very easy for me to feel comfortable (when I usually feel uncomfortable in social settings).
They were incredibly easy to talk to and had a very comforting, joyful, and positive energy around them at all times. I also really loved the presence of the animals, particularly Noah the dog, and Luca the cat, the chickens were also really cool to be around! Another thing that was great was the food, not only was it healthy but it was very delicious (thank you Peter!).
All the conversations we had were easy and fun, there was never a dull moment. I truly liked every single thing about this retreat!
I have learned so much about myself in just one week, and I have so much more knowledge about everything related to the mind and body, and how much power they hold! I have had a very toxic relationship with myself, and I struggled a lot with doing everyday activities, everything felt like a burden.
The biggest thing I have gotten from this retreat is that I have been looking at the wrong places for answers, I have learned that many of the answers to my problems lie within myself. That the power is within me and that I have the ability to regain it and find joy in my life.
I feel like I have the tools now to restore my relationship with myself and to live life at my fullest potential. Although I still have a lot of work to do to get there, I feel very confident about the journey I am about to get on, because I now know what I need to focus on moving forward.
Right after the week (and during) I felt really good in my body, I had been eating very healthy food and sleeping very well which I felt the results of pretty quickly.
Also being surrounded by beautiful nature and experiencing what a peaceful environment was like had immediate effects on me. It felt really good!
I truly cannot put into words how life-changing this was for me.
I will forever carry with me all the knowledge I have gotten from Pingel and from the workshops we have done. It has opened my eyes in a way that has never happened before.
For someone who has struggled immensely with understanding her own self, this was very much needed. I can confidently say I am on a guaranteed road to healing and growing and finding joy in my life, and I have so much to look forward to!
If you are considering trying out this retreat, don’t second guess it! Do it! It’s so wonderful!
