"Before entering the retreat I was consumed by self doubt and excuses- (after retreat) I feel so much more grounded in my life. From eating cleaner, to making myself a priority - I feel so much more in alignment with my soul. I don't think you could be in better hands than with Krysten. There's no way you could come out on the other side of one of her retreats the same."
