Workshop/Retreat Testimonials

What participants have said about the Vissell's workshops:

"Being in this workshop has allowed me to experience a way that I have dreamed and prayed human beings could relate to one another."

"I left this workshop with my heart bursting with love. I have never experienced anyone so good at bringing this much love out of people."

"This workshop has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. Becoming of one mind and heart with an initially diverse group of people is special beyond words." 
"I found that some of my deepest, darkest fears and pain could be shared in a new-found safety, and once released, my pain became my joy, my weakness became my strength, strangers became intimate friends, and I discovered a new way of seeing."

"This workshop helped me to look forward to the love and joy I now know is possible in a relationship."

“I’m sad to leave this retreat. I need more of this in my life.”

“I have come to love the family that is formed amongst all who gather each year at this exceptional retreat. A safe and beautiful space is created for the adults, children, and teens. The combination is magical and deep enough to last a lifetime. It is a rare experience to find a family camp that encompasses all paths and beliefs and nurtures growth and awareness at any age level.”
