Testimonials

I had such a great experience! It’s exactly what I needed and exactly what I have been looking for.
It was honestly the experience of a lifetime!

"Thank you so much for the Wild Spirit (dance) experience last night. I remember when you told me that dancing changed your life. I sure can see that it would- I had such a great experience! It's exactly what I needed and exactly what I have been looking for."  -Randi

“I’ve traveled quite a lot and had many amazing experiences, but this retreat was incredible- better than I’d ever imagined! It was honestly the experience of a lifetime! ”  -Zac

This trip had a profound affect on me. It’s the best money I’ve ever spent.

"This trip had a profound affect on me. It's the best money I've ever spent. I've received so many gifts on this retreat- I've grown so much and I feel different. Now, I have resources and tools from many wisdom traditions and the outdoors. I've become more present, less afraid, more calm, and I've come to understand that the answers to my questions are in the present moment, in nature and in myself."  -Saralyn

I felt a wholeness and a calm. It was truly awesome. I felt very present and complete
The very core of my being has been impacted

"For one of my solo distance retreat activities, I choose to stay in my very own yard. After almost 30 years at this house, this is the first time I enjoyed the security and comfort of the beautiful Holly trees right on my property. I took in lots- the sunlight, birds, and swinging tree branches and trunks- it was a magnificent experience- one that I plan duplicate again because through it I gained a greater appreciation for what is happening right around me. When I left my Sacred Space, I felt a wholeness and a calm. It was truly awesome. I felt very present and complete." -*Carie

"I want to thank you so much for my distance solo retreat. The very core of my being has been impacted by tremendous insights, received during the activities you designed for me. They are so worthwhile that I want to do them all over again. In the wilderness area, I did the water activity at my favorite stream. Then, I found several beautiful spots and just sat for quite awhile in the silence of nature and noticed all of the sounds and beauty around me. My meditations flowed like the water and were deep and revealing to my true nature. I plan on going back to this place for more deep contemplation. Thank you so much for your guidance." -*Julie

I would highly recommend her (Toby’s) services to anyone interested in a transformative experience in nature
This experience has pushed my spiritual journey ahead leaps and bounds

"I decided to treat myself to a personalized solo retreat designed by Toby Joy Zelt. The experience was a perfect way to kick off the year. Her thoughtfully composed exercises led me through creating a starting space, inviting me to interact with water, with the sky, with sound, and with my own body. I spent time on the exercises in nature, something my goal-oriented hiking ambitions rarely allow for. After several hours in the woods, I felt lighter, happier, and ready for the year ahead of me. The retreat was a true opportunity to come closer to myself and to nature at the same time. Toby worked with me closely throughout the process of creating my retreat. Through all our conversations, I felt that she was present, empathetic, and thoughtful toward my life and my goals. We spoke several times before I actually went on my retreat, and I always found her to be reliable, ambitious, and totally supportive of me. It was a delight to work with Toby in this capacity, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone interested in a transformative experience in nature." -Tiferet

“This experience has pushed my spiritual journey ahead leaps and bounds, beyond where I would be today on my own. Having Toby as a mentor and guide, before, during, and after the retreat has made such a positive impact in my life. Whenever she speaks to you, it’s like all the problems and stressors in life melt away, and you feel more sure than ever that you know the right path to a joyful and enlightened life. She knows how to make you feel safe and loved, even while she criticizes you - which always feels more like a gentle nudge leading you off of a busy highway where you are heading into oncoming traffic, and onto a nature path full of trees and sunlight, where you are heading towards a peaceful pond.”  -Aftyn

I’ve become more present, less afraid, more calm
