Madhavi & Debbie met 7 years ago at the Yoga conference in Munich. They became instant friends. Over years this became closer and they shared many deep realisations on life, setting up their own individual business, reading the same books and of course also about their life relationships that come with ups and downs and reflecting on the inner self. This comes with many laughters and tears on all topics, but foremost they come with teachings. Always highlighting the best qualities of the other in the end of every conversation to summarise and remind the other we are spirit souls living in a demanding material world. They started to dream about hosting a retreat to empower other woman on living a more simple life with this higher conscious way of thinking.
At the retreat Madhavi will lead daily Mantra Meditation and she´ll share her experience and knowledge about the healing power of essential oils and how they can bring balance and healing for body, mind and spirit.
