Some comments from retreatants:
"The retreat was all I hoped for and more. It touched my heart. You have prepared a magnificent program."
"I want you to know that this is the most important retreat of my life. You have put it together with words, music, art, and story with beauty and elegance."
"I wanted to say how exciting it was for me to have you put the beatitudes into the context of the new cosmology and climate change. I read many years ago that the B's are the heart of Xtny...but wasn't sure how to integrate that personally. Very excited to go deeper into what you shared this morning."
"What I was looking for was so small compared to what I actually received. And what I wanted I had within me all the time! Thank you for expanding my God for me..."
