  • The teachings and practices shared during this retreat are for personal growth and enrichment and should not replace medical advice or treatment. Always consult with your healthcare provider for medical concerns.

Generosity-Based Philosophy:

At the heart of this retreat lies a profound commitment to the spirit ofΒ Dana, a philosophy rooted in generosity and selflessness. Dr. Donisha Dunn and Laura Johanna are offering this retreat firmly believing that what we do for love will always be far more powerful than what we do for money.

We hold the belief that every individual possesses an inherent capacity for generosity, and together, we can co-create a thriving community built upon values of abundance, trust, and connection, rather than scarcity, fear, and separation.

Your Contribution:

The registration fee for this retreat covers the essential costs of your accommodation and all nourishing meals at Sweetwater Studios. Our intention is to make this beautiful and transformative experience as accessible as possible to all who are drawn to it.

We extend a heartfelt invitation for you to voluntarily contribute to the teachers from your own spirit of gratitude to the greatest extent that you can. Your contribution plays a pivotal role in ensuring that we can continue offering retreats that touch the lives of many.

Voluntary Giving:

Participants have the opportunity to voluntarily give an additional amount for the teachers during the registration process or at the event itself. Your generosity not only supports the sustainability of these retreats but also enables us to create a space where everyone, regardless of financial circumstances, can participate and benefit.

Together, we aspire to cultivate a community founded on the principles of generosity, where we uplift one another, celebrate our shared journey, and foster a sense of interconnectedness. Your contribution, whatever its size, becomes an integral part of this collective endeavor.

Join us in embracing the spirit of dana, and let’s co-create a retreat experience that transcends boundaries, fosters unity, and celebrates the boundless potential of the human heart.
