Over the years helping people on their journey back to life we have collected some of the kind words we have received. We would like to share some of these with you, we hope they bring some understanding of the valuable work we do at Eden Light Retreat

During my life I have read most probably a quarter of the self help and spiritual development books in the library but it was not until I came here to Eden that I really understood them.  Thank you for opening my eyes, healing my heart and guiding me back from a human ‘doing’ to a human ‘Being’ I went to Bodghaya in India to sit under the Bhodi tree, I’ve done years of counselling, I’ve done a 10 day Vipassna and I have gotten more out of this program than any of them! Thank you


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you; you gave me back my Life.  I came here at the end of my tether.  I was obese and a heavy smoker, this was my last resort.  I’d tried every diet under the sun and all the quit smoking programs, NOTHING worked, I just couldn’t do it on my own.  I came for a 2 week stay for weight loss and quit smoking and didn’t know what to expect, I was a s nervous as hell but came with an open mind, I was at the point in my life where it was DO or DIE. WOW was I pleasantly surprised, not only did I lose weight, get fit and quit smoking (immediately by the way) but I also found out why I was the way I was.
 It wasn’t easy at first, I felt lonely but I hung in there and it was the best thing I ever did.  I am leaving a much better person, in a much better place, I am going home as myself not who I thought I should be. I feel fabulous and for me now the sky is the limit.  I can never thank you enough you have literally saved my life.


I arrived here 5 days ago overwhelmed, seeking a quiet place to hide. I had no expectations as to what might happen but I was open to the experience.  I sincerely thank all the wonderful women here who came with me on my journey and who have held me emotionally and physically in a caring, nurturing way, trust them, trust the process, you will be ok.  I leave today wholly myself, with much Love



Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating a little heaven in a hectic world –



Thank you, my idea was to have a 3 day stay during my birthday, a break and rest from the stress of work; again I received much, much more –



What a break and change of pace! The fruit and vege’ diet was easy; I’ll be back for more – 



I really didn’t know what to expect when I first arrived. I hoped to finally give up smoking and lose weight . all in all a good physical clean out, what I didn’t expect was a complete detox body, mind, heart and soul. 5 days on I have never felt so good physically and emotionally. In all my years of therapy no one ever taught me how to deal with my emotions, my past, and my demons until I came here – 



I came here with so much hate and anger from years of abuse and thought that 7 days of no TV, radio and papers would be torture, however I must say that it has been the best 7 days I have ever had! It made me have a good look at myself and I have come out of this a more positive and no doubt more caring person. This is just the beginning for me –


I knew I was meant to be here .I had a choice, continue life the way it was (in a negative, self defeating downward spiral) or take the journey that I have just been on for the past 5 days – it wasn’t easy. I leave Eden ‘light’ ready to continue the work I have started . I am now taking the first steps towards creating and attracting a better life, thank you –


Thanks for your Retreat, your time, your insight and most of all your caring –

Thank you for your compassion, skills and insight as you worked with me. You opened my mind as to the road I need to travel; now the rest of the journey is my homework –


Wow what can I say, what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much. I was not quite sure where I would be taken on my 5 day journey but I trusted the process. Jacqueline took me somewhere I never imagined but somewhere I needed to go to be healed and free. Thank you so much, I look forward to working with you again in the future –


Much gratitude and Love from the heart as I ready to leave Eden Light. Thank you for providing a sanctuary for my re-embracing of life –

I came into the detox program with apprehension and hope for I have never done anything like this before and didn’t really believe that I would. I immediately felt supported and believed in.Thank you very much –


I don’t really know where to start . I saw Jacqueline on ‘Postcards WA’ just a flash . I was out of control with coffee, chocolate and binge eating .I leave here knowing this is the start of the ‘new me’, I shall need a ‘top up’ from wonderful Jacqueline and her team. Thank you for taking my hand on the road to recovery, I love and trust you –


Thank you for this beautiful place, it was relaxing and just what we needed to re-energise. We feel that this place has a lot of Love to offer, thank you –

I am profoundly grateful to have been guided to Eden, to Jacqueline and her wonderful team of therapists. I was stressed, over worked, strung out and craving self care, nurturing and support . all were achieved and so much more.how could you not be blown away by the sheer beauty, peace and serenity that embraces and caresses you during your stay . I released into peace as soon as I drove in the drive way . thank you –


3 days of the best relaxation and de-stress in beautiful serene surroundings. lots of peace and quiet, solitude, long walks, reading, early nights and mornings, spas and looking out on the beautiful, ever changing vista from my Retreat, thank you –


I came here on the Sunday, strung out, stressed, needing a break! From the moment I arrived I knew I had made the right choice, Total, total relaxation, support and detox. Jacqueline, this experience has made me – me. I know who I am. I have a lot to offer and I can achieve what my heart desires, Thank you –


You can not but appreciate everything our beautiful, rich lives have to offer by being here. The breathtaking scenery, every sound and smell . you have touched my life and helped ME make it much better, I’m excited at what my life has to offer . what an amazing journey. I can’t wait!! –


I came looking for a break from work, mobile calls and emails . but found so much more. Over weight and not really encountering a lot of joy in my life Jacqueline zoned in on 45 years of negative programming. Intellectually I got it, I knew it but was unaware that I didn’t know how to apply it. I feel fantastic and I am so excited at what the future holds for me without my self sabotaging programming . so watch this space… Jacqueline thank you, thank you, thank you –


Today is the first day of spring and what a magnificent place to spend it. I feel as beautiful as the vista that surrounds me. Everything is perfect just as it is, including me; it’s easy to say that now on day 5. Day 1, 2 and 3 were a very different matter, almost the exact opposite of how I feel now. Of course after years of filling up on ugly, disgusting toxic substances it’s not surprising I’d feel a little ugly and disgusting as it came out! But hey it’s only a couple of days of yuck after years of abuse. Now I am free and I thank myself for getting me here and I deeply thank Jacqueline for doing the rest, Love and gratitude


What can I say, I came here empty, unhappy, a heavy smoker (46 yrs). With hypnosis, meditation, massage and beautiful Jacqueline I began to let go of my black demons and open up to what I was hearing and the warm love I was surrounded in. Thank you so much Jacqueline, I definitely go home a different person . I’ll be back for more


I was experiencing several ‘lows’ and had been unwell on and off for the past few months, my get up and go had got up and gone! I was feeling sluggish, bloated; most things seemed almost a chore, to add to this I was now looking for too many answers in the bottom of a bottle (or two!) I needed a quick fix. I thought 5 days away from everyone and everything being pampered with massages, meditation, yoga, a healthy diet and detox etc… In serene bush surroundings would achieve the end result. The above were all magnificently achieved BUT they had to take second place to that which I never anticipated or expected! I was re-introduced to ME! The real ME, not the me I had been used to for all these years, I had no idea how incredibly beautiful, peaceful and capable the real ME is . Bless you all –


Jacqueline – Thank you for all your support over the past week, I feel great. I have more energy and I have learnt so much more about myself. This week has been a great experience for me and one I will never forget!


On Saturday afternoon as I looked over the valley I was amazed by it’s beauty and how calming nature could be and then I realized ‘I was now calm’ Thank you for sharing this amazingly calm paradise with me
