Testimonials for Jayme Barrett

This Italy Retreat was exactly what I needed for this time in my life! It was amazing to be with such beautiful women (both inside and out) who are like-minded. Jayme, thank you for creating such a beautiful experience. My expectations were blown away and our hotel was incredible. I loved going to all the stunning cities, eating dinner together and all the wonderful classes. I feel rejuvenated and equipped with feng shui tips to bring love, joy, peace and happiness into my life. This retreat was a perfect blend of female empowerment, manifestation and cultural discovery!
Heather

Our retreat was the deepest expression of self-care on all levels; physical, spiritual, emotional and tons of fun! Jayme is an inspiring, loving, generous leader. She shares so much of what she knows as well as life stories to illustrate how feng shui impacts all of life.
Karen

This enlightening and restorative retreat was life changing for me! Staying in the the villa and eating the amazing food gave me a true perspective of what it’s like to live in this beautiful country. The classes – yoga and manifestation – really brought us all together and gave me an incredible sense of peace and enlightenment. Jayme did an amazing job organizing and coordinating and I loved her classes. The places we visited and Jayme’s ability to bring 12 women together to form a “sisterhood” is something I will be forever grateful for. I wish everyone I know could experience Jayme’s retreat!
