“I came to the retreat because my marriage had stalled and I had a “young” broken heart. I was traveling through my life in top gear, speeding past moments that needed time to take in, but they were just a blur. Brick walls were built to shield the pain.

Shelly and her team of beautiful souls at Pondok Nino gave me a sanctuary where I could “turn the car off”, rest, refuel and rebuild.

From my time here, life is changing, not just for me, but for my family (wife and 3 children). Shelly through the “journey” she takes you on, opened my eyes but especially my heart to the inner peace that is a right for everyone to have. My love for myself has returned and I have made “peace from my past”.

I have gained another family from Shelly and her team, but also another brother and sister in the two others that I took my “journey” with. Thanks to them also for being there when I needed support throughout the retreat.

The ambiance and tranquility of Pondok Nino is the perfect surrounds to go on the journey of a life time.”
