Hear first hand what a life-changing experience a Behold retreat can be from our past participants.

I cant believe that the healer and the facilitators (Aleia, Sara, and Migueleon) are real or human being! They must be sent from heaven. I [previously] had rough journeys and aggressive trips with Aya, the support that I received from the team was unbelievable, I have never been supported in that in my whole life. I am beyond honored blessed to have met them. Second thing I liked is the food quality was brilliant amazing! My room was excellent and my view was very needed to rest and heal. Hot water showers was heaven. Music from Migueleon, Sara, and Aleia - their classes were on point. They left their rooms open incase anyone needed them during the night. The retreat staff smiling to us and very friendly .Believe me words are not enough.

I loved everything. I'm 53 so I've experienced a lot of great things in my life and this was the best. It totally surpassed my expectations - I got more than I thought I would from this. Words don't do it justice. How do you use words to describe something which gave you your life back and was possibly the most profound thing you've ever done? There is absolutely nothing I would change.

The level of care, support, genuine personal investment and love from the facilitators. Truly touching. Behold’s legitimacy, full spectrum of care and genuine individual attention is unmatched. The biggest of thank yous to Migueleon, Sara and Aleia for being everything I could ask for. Truly, truly beautiful people with amazing talent who did more in 5 days to heal me than I have managed in 15 years. I will carry them with me forever.

Adele Bradley

I loved the people, the bonding, the shared memories, the trust, the love and the whole experience. It’s been incredible. Migueleon, Sara & Aleia are shining angels and are the most incredible people who make an incredible team.
