We ask for feedback from our retreat participants. Here are some quotes from the wonderful people who attended our 2017 Footsteps Retreat in Assisi.


….I was surprised and happy to witness practitioners from various traditions coalesce beautifully into our “pop-up sangha.”


…The dedication of Sylvia’s staff—ever watchful for the well-being of the group.


Loved the structure of the day: a.m. meditation and teaching that set up the day’s excursion.  Opportunity for contemplation during visits to sites.


The blend of teachings, pilgrimage and free time.  Sylvia’s style of teaching—very personal, casual but with a lot of content.  She made the dharma very accessible.


Great choice of lodging.  Good container for the sangha.  Excellent teaching with a caring, compassionate teacher…Excellent pilgrimage sites to illustrate the teaching.


..the team, each and everyone.  How well planned it was: where we stayed, how we stayed, and our pilgrimage sites.


The teaching programme has been excellent; pointed, informative, and with great personal generosity and knowledge …


Sylvia’s teachings, and the particular viewpoint from which she speaks, gave me fresh openings into my practice….I felt that the sangha that was created among the participants and the “staff” gave another dimension of openness and opportunities to learn.
