What previous attendees have said:

I really appreciate the thought, care and love that goes to everything at Quest and the wholistic nature of the program. It’s a step away from the world to regather and restore. – Jenny

It was so good to be ‘home’. – Michael

The facilitators were calm, wise and allowed space for whatever came into the room. I felt heard and supported emotionally. – Georgina

Quest is a place of tranquillity, a space where I found peace in the beautiful, natural surroundings. I felt the outer noise of the world and the inner chatter of my mind stop in the pause, I could see much more clearly the path to take in my life. I am so grateful to Petrea and Wendie for founding Quest for Life and providing this nurturing, safe place of healing. – Georgina
