My name is Ayal Hurst, and I am the founder and co-creator, along with my husband Hawk, of Homestead Retreat, a beautiful and magical retreat and healing center near Asheville, NC. We heard once that this land, centuries ago, was used by the Native American people who lived here, as a special gathering place, a place where people came to be in peace together, to find healing, and it seems that we were called here to do the same thing. The story of how we found this land is very magical - read more on my site. And please feel free to visit my blog, Stories from Homestead Retreat.
My areas of expertise include:
...as well as Polarity Therapy and Reiki Healing. I am well versed in the many options the alternative healing world has to offer, as well as in various meditation practices, and I am impartial as to which would work best for a given individual. I ask my Highest Guidance for whatever method would be most helpful in a particular situation.

"Ayal's gift is a laser-like attunement, deep and true."
"Thanks for tuning in. I'll try some of those remedies.
"Ayal, thank you very much for your encouraging words, your insights and the "how-to" of spirit retrieval. Your reply is wonderful and reassuring."
"Just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your site. Your insights have been extremely helpful and I marvel at how generously you give of your time and talents. Thank you for sharing your gifts and many blessings to you and your family in the New Year."
"I really want to thank you again for your care kindness and generosity to send me more information. It is so helpful! It is in fact what I have been searching for a long time without knowing where to or even how to name it. It's such a high stuff that I really have to work hard to get at it. I am going about your letter very slowly, reflectively and meditatively. There is so much to digest and absorb. I don't want to miss any thing good, anything that is within my reach. Thank you so much again for consecrating your precious time to write to me. Your work is a very powerful seed which will bear long lasting fruit in due season. May all the benevolent powers of the Universe give you back many fold the good you do to people like me."
"Ayal, You have an amazing ability to hit the nail on the head. I knew this issue to be one that has had it's hold on me but the resolve had me puzzled. This issue goes way back... The thought that I could work on it myself through meditation is comforting... I was not sure how to go about dealing with this one. I will start today and do the work. I SO want to clear the way. Love you so much and thank you, thank you, thank you."
"I consider Ayal to be a very powerful healer/medicine woman. She has helped me in so many ways over the years. Anything at all that you are wondering about, having a hard time with, struggling with, you can ask her about. She is very good and gives recommendations of things you can actually do... she tunes in and receives great insight into your soul... her main purpose is to promote healing... what ways are best for you as an individual to heal/work through issues."
"Ayal, I just had to tell you how powerfully Spiritual you are and what a Presence you hold. No one can come close to your wisdom and direction."
