"My experience of the Walk your Talk retreat has been fantastic. When I first saw the title of the course I knew that it would be my launch point for changing my life to be and do everything I dream of, and I haven’t been disappointed. Getting up to do yoga before breakfast was a real eye opener and I hope I will carry on with this. This retreat has shown me ‘everything' is possible. My crystal healing one to one sessions were fantastic and it has definitely moved things in my body. I have experienced many different things and emotions and the people are so warm and generous. The Qi Gong was my favourite. I connected with it straight away and will continue with this. I will take this Walk your Talk Experience away with me and remember it forever. I expected nothing and received everything in this rustic paradise.
If I remember correctly, in my first email exchange with Vanessa I said I wanted to learn how to ‘re-evaluate and re-appreciate’ my life, and this is exactly what taking part in a Walk your Talk retreat has enabled me to do. I was exhausted, confused and felt I was sleep walking through life – now I am far more content and appreciative and I have a spring in my step; I know who I am, what I am, and what I would like to achieve. It’s given me a renewed sense of proportion, and the energy to make changes to my life.
I was drawn to Walk your Talk by the smorgasbord of Yoga/Qi Gong/Reiki/meditation/therapies (none of which I had done before) and by the realism of it all – I had been quite daunted by other retreats I looked at which all seemed to entail self-denial and intensive introspection. I knew I wanted to take a good look at myself and try various methods of relaxation and self-discovery, but I was nervous of entering an environment where others appeared to have already found all the answers!
Vanessa, Mano and all the staff at Chera Rocks couldn’t have been more easy-going and relaxed; they are open, caring and welcoming, and there are no expectations. The location is stunning, the food is superb, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the Chera Rocks beach house is a safe haven. All you need to do is relax and let them guide you – take part in the Walk your Talk programme and re-learn who you really are, what is important to you, and how to really live your life rather than just exist.
From my experience I can assure you that you will return feeling like you’ve had a make-over… no need for Gok Wan or cosmetic surgery, your spirit will feel 10 years younger! I’ve lost track of the number of people who have told me I look amazing at the moment, it’s nothing to do with the already faded tan, it’s entirely down to inner peace – it works wonders! I’ve already booked my place for next year! Jennie, Devon
