A Fully Inclusive and Immersive Journey
We do everything we can to provide you with the best possible experience on your journey with us. Part of that commitment to you includes providing ‘extras’ while you’re here – at no extra cost to you.
Why do we do this? Because in our experience these ‘extras’ are important elements of a potentially life-changing journey for you and it’s important to us that they are available for anyone and everyone.
In other words, we want you to have the best experience possible without wondering whether extra expenses for additional services would make your journey more significant or profound in some way. We remove those questions from the very beginning of your journey to provide space for you to enjoy and immerse yourself fully in everything we have to offer.
The AYA Healing Retreats Experience
