In Their Words…

OK, you’ve heard enough of us talking about our retreats.

Well, today I get to share with you some words directly from the participants of the last many retreats. 
You can see for yourself that something INCREDIBLE is happening.

And who are these people? 
They are New Yorkers, west coasters, Hawaiian beauties, mid-western couples or families, Canadian truth seekers, expats from abroad, single, married, divorced, mothers of 4, fathers of 3, travelers, facing miscarriages, in between jobs, trying to tap into inner passions and dreams, spiritually inclined, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, ex-Mormon, Mormon, atheist, learning to forgive, learning to interact with difficult family members, facing infertility, healing from infidelity, professionals (for example a gender equality attorney, a teacher, an environmental engineer, an anesthesiologist, a nurse), working on loving their beautiful bodies, and working on their self worth. They are REAL people wanting to empower their lives. They are an inspiration to this world. 

“My experience at the Body+Soul Camp was nothing short of amazing. It provided a week of peace and inner work away from my daily life. Mara and Danny provided countless tools and information that have had a profound effect on me and my relationships. The raw foodist, Tony, and the yoga instructor and healer, Alex, have left me in awe at their wonderful gifts and words of wisdom. I am constantly thinking about the concepts and ideas they have provided me and am growing so much from it. I can also say that going with a group of people motivated to improve their lives creates an incredible environment for conversation and growth with your fellow attendees. I walked away with amazing friendships with not only Danny and Mara, but also the entire group! I was struggling to connect the dots in my life and the Body+Soul Camp has been life changing. During the week I would face challenges that were overcome with the information we were being taught. It was a miracle to see the work in action! I will never forget my experience at Casa Mojanda with the incredible staff and beautiful scenery.”

Guest at Body+Soul Camp in Ecuador

“Before coming to Body+Soul Camp, I kept questioning myself as to why I was really traveling all the way to Ecuador for it and what I really expected to accomplish by doing it. As the days progressed, it became more than clear that this ‘camp’ and what Danny & Mara do, is an essential life lesson for anyone & everyone. From the yoga & meditation, to the amazing food, ‘Love’ classes, one-on-one time with Danny & Mara, and excursions around the city, this retreat has everything you need to return to your everyday life not only changed, but empowered & refreshed.”

Of all the praises I could sing about Danny and Mara’s retreat, the most meaningful to me is that it has forever improved the way I engage in my life-both inwardly and outwardly. I have come home with a certainty of my worth, a heart full of love for myself and others, and the tools and intention to put all things into the perspective of my true identity and purpose. The combination of the beautiful grounds at Casa Mojanda, raw food, yoga and meditation (the instructor is remarkably healing and empowering in her very nature), and Danny and Mara’s classes, love, and guidance creates the best possible space for the love and change you may need. I felt supported and loved in every moment by every person and every aspect of the retreat. What a gift. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done for my life.

“Everything was perfect! I really could not have asked for a better experience. I was sad when the retreat was over–but it was the experience of a lifetime, and I walked away with so many tools and resources that I know will aid me for the rest of my life. I have already seen the positive results from what I learned from Mara and Danny!

Of course I still have my off moments/days, but I feel like I’m in a much better place to handle these feelings now. I feel incredibly grateful and fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the retreat and meet Mara and Danny in person.”

“Life changing! The principles we learned with Danny and Mara come into play everyday and can truly improve your life. My primary recommendation…you guys need to write a book.”

    If I had more money, I'd be there in a heartbeat. That would be an amazing opportunity.

    I love seeing the little one in all of the photos! If my husband and I ever take the leap to come and visit one of your retreats we would need to bring our little one!

      It was an absolute JOY to have a little girl there. She was absolutely part of the family for the week. In their case, the husband and wife traded off during yoga, meditation, nap time, etc. Also, I love what the mom said. She decided to make the time with their daughter there part of the "practice" – meaning, she wanted to be in the chaos and work on feeling more peace. So, so great.

      Anyway, know that you would be able to bring your little one if needed. XOXO Also, so, so lovely to see your comment here. I've been wanting to write you to just say hello!

    So great! I want to come one of these days. But just reading about it reminds me to put into practice the discipline required to live a mindful life! Also, I have been to Casa Mojanda and I couldn't imagine a better place for this sort of thing. You are changing lives!
