From the moment I arrived at the eco village in Findhorn until the time we departed for Aviemore I was transported to an idyllic space where time flowed easily, freedom and beauty surrounded me all day long inside and out.  From the beauty of the  people at the village to the stunning beaches and ocean on the Moray coast to the stunning pine and heather forests to the incredible wide open heather moors. Your guidance and planning were perfect for our daily activities. Calming meditation and yoga set the intention every day and the magic just happened.  Anyone wanting to return to being present and loved and joyful will experience all of this and more on the Scotland walking tour.  Thank you Valma for helping me find my innocence again.

“I was intrigued with the forking and your energy healing methods. You are such a unique woman and I am so glad to have met you when I did. I am working hard here back home – doing my Yoga, practicing my breathing, trying extra hard to stay in the moment. I am also approaching my family problems with a far different attitude than I had before I went to Salt Spring Island. In short, I am a happier, more peaceful woman – and it shows! Valma, thank you once again for passing on your wisdom and strength."
