"My son loved it! I was impressed with the instructors’ calm, fun, and insightful way of working with the children. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover there is a contemplative aspect to their teaching, which is seamlessly woven into the fabric of the day through games, thoughtful discussion, and private time in nature to observe and reflect."
