“The High Vibe retreat was life changing. I went to Bali hoping to relax, de-stress and do some yoga. While that was achieved, the retreat offered so much more. I have a loads of gratitude to Megan and Emily for all that I have learned through the amazing work that they do. I came into the retreat really closed off to the world. I had so many walls built to keep people away, thinking I was strong because no one could hurt me. In the retreat, I learned that real strength is about having the courage to let people in. It was amazing connecting with everyone on the retreat and I feel really lucky to have been a part of a group where everyone was open and honest. It was a magical experience, and I feel that I am truly living better as a result.” ~Evonne, Australia
