Florentine, Netherlands

Ik wilde je nog even laten weten dat we een heerlijke tijd hebben gehad in Jordanië! We zijn gisteren weer geland en het is nu weer heel erg wennen aan het Amsterdamse leven. Dank voor de goede zorgen en de veilige autoritten van Osama!

Christina M., Switzerland

I’m so grateful I chose to visit Jordan with Sandra as my guide! The retreat exceeded all my expectations. Through yoga and meditation, desert treks and mountain hikes, as well as her powerful coaching work with horses, Sandra created a supportive environment that allowed me to open my heart and mind to healing and transformation. For me, the trip started out as an adventure to discover a new country and became a pilgrimage to discover myself. I returned home feeling peaceful, strong and inspired, with new friends and new energy. I highly recommend In2Jordan! Read more

Jeny, United Kingdom

I just wanted to share how amazing my time was with Sandra and her horses in Wadi Musa. I arrived in April, with the heavy weight of burdens and in need of some gentle time in the desert. Gamar, Sandra’s first horse, came out and we did some exercise in the yard. Not yet used to me she took her time to come closer. And then she came to me and embraced me, so intently and intimately, like she realized I needed some support and in recognition of what I was going through. And that was day one. She was amazing, as was the whole holiday, and Sandra, who supported me also with light and kindness. Thank you! Read more
