“I had such a wonderful time in this yurt. It feels like being back in the womb, it's so warm, cozy, and sensual. I felt truly held and supported in this space. It felt like a little sanctuary away from the world to tune back into my body again and recharge. Thank you so much, Ali and Helen!” L.R.

“What a fabulous day I had at Wivelsfield Yurt recently. It is a wonderful space where I felt very comfortable. We danced, expressed ourselves and meditated. Helen and Ali are skilled facilitators who made the day very special for me. Many thanks. X” S.R.

“Amazing evening and beautiful cosy space with kindred souls. Coming together for the good of the community. The theme was woman's day and teaching which resonated as I have been an Occupational Therapist teaching life skills, empowerment and independence in a difficult system. I'm now moving into teaching in a new way in the community including heart conscious meditation, heart dance and tea ceremonies for preventive healthcare and teaching prisoners mindfulness and connection. I have many fears around going against the system which were all bought into the light and exchanged for abundance, acceptance and my true destiny. A beautiful heart felt evening where I felt comfortable and connected to everyone who attended. Thank you Helen and Ali.” L.P.
