Meet Diana Osberg

DianaOsbergSmallI’m Diana Osberg, owner and founder of Mia Terra Retreats. It seems that I was destined to be a storyteller, writer and healer. At four years old, I stepped on stage for the first time and performed the story of “Alice in Wonderland.” I played all the characters, using different voices, and got a standing ovation from my audience. At the age of five, I began to tell stories as a guest artist on a radio show called “The Children’s Corner.” Learn More.


It was a great week. Diana put together a very informative and enjoyable journey for us all. She put the “Treat” in retreat.
