"I highly recommend the Personal Retreat with Sylvia. The five days of the retreat were carefully structured. I found Sylvia to be very compassionate and skilled in getting to essential issues I needed to bring to the light of day, and the sessions ended up being quite cathartic. I enjoyed the rhythm of the schedule. The food she prepared was simple, organic, balanced and just the kind of food I like to eat. I look forward to continue working with Sylvia in the future."

"I highly recommend the 5-day Personal Retreat with Sylvia and doing "The Work". Sylvia was so helpful and highly skilled in doing "The Work" with me. I had several breakthroughs and she had me do another exercise that helped me see that - no matter what happens -everything works out. It was a gift. If you are on the fence-just do it as we are worth it!"

"Sylvia runs a fantastic retreat. She puts you up in your own private upstairs apartment in her house complete with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, dining room and a bathroom. The schedule is relaxed; there's enough buffer time around activities for you not to feel rushed. I spent most of my downtime reading Byron Katie's books which Sylvia provided. A hidden perk of Sylvia's retreat is the morning beach trip with a Morning Walk with instructions from Byron Katie, followed by breakfast and unstructured time on the beach. I spent all of my unstructured beach time swimming in the gulf's 88 degree gently swaying water. It's an opportunity that doesn't come around often.
The crown jewel of the retreat is, of course, the two daily sessions of the Work of Byron Katie facilitated by Sylvia. With Sylvia's help I was able to see through a toxic self-limiting belief that has been holding me back for as long as I can remember. Things have started to come into focus since then. Sylvia has a knack for helping you disabuse yourself of the roadblocks in the process of working through a worksheet as well. She holds a gentle but clarity focused presence.
I was very pleased with my retreat in Sep 2022 and I would do it again."
