What folks are saying about Wattle Hollow...

...take a look at what our visitors have to say.

…how much I loved the retreat! Wattle Hollow is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The work you do both inside the human, and outside the natural world is non-pareil. Thank you so much. . . I learned so much to help me with my meditation practice, and have carved out time every morning to sit before going to work.

“I had a great time cobbing! What a wonderful way to create community with kind and gentle people in harmony with mother earth. I learned by doing, and now I feel confident enough to start my own cobbing project.”

We really loved it…the vision we cherish of deep, deep ecology, natural beauty and…. a ‘ heaven on earth ‘. And without nourishment born of beauty we couldn’t rise to the needful height to be of real service in this divine dance.”

“Your place is wonderful- the perfect environment in which to relax, enjoy nature and allow for the spirit to rise.” 
Love, Valerie (Hospice volunteer coordinator)

Wattle Hollow for me was a little bit of heaven! Thank you for letting us drink of its joys, beauties and relaxants…. (from Paul)
