Being attuned to nature is more than being natural—it is thinking in terms of blending in with rather than standing out—but in so doing I believe we actually make a greater impact. To me, that is what The Retreat is all about, and why I love working in such a place of natural splendor. Everyone doesn’t think this way…but some people still get it.
