Explore yourself via yoga, meditation, healthy food and group discussions.
Type of Event
This is a week to get on track with healthier habits for your body, mind and spirit, and lose some stress with a break from the busyness of your life. You will become confident with preparing whole vegetable juices, smoothies and nutritious raw foods with food prep classes each day. Return home armed with recipes and confidence to keep up the momentum you start this week. If you have significant health issues this may be just the week you need to get on track with better eating habits. You are what you eat so why not eat nutritious, whole foods?
"A warm loving environment with the added bonus of FANTASTIC FOOD! The juicing retreat could be as intense or relaxed as you wish. No judgement. I truly appreciated the space I was given to sleep, read or walk alone. Liz offered great workshop topics and provided me with a tonne of information. A wonderful week with beautiful people.

If you’ve wondered how to:
- start a healthier way of eating
- slowly lose weight without gaining it back
- feel emotionally balanced and energized
- deepen your sense of spirit
- become more mindful
- cope with stresses of life
- start some gentle exercise
Then this is the retreat for you!
We think of weight loss as a process of getting clear with what serves you. Excess weight doesn’t serve you – so allow it to go.
There will be no suffering through fasting or eating anything that doesn’t taste awesome. This is a FEEL GREAT week! We make healthy and delicious food, that your friends will want the recipes for!
Right thinking, right eating, right exercise. So simple? It can be.
This week has a focus on all aspects of your body – what you eat, how you eat, how you feed your mind, and how you feel in your body. You will eat well and nourish your body with yummy organic juices, smoothies and vegan soups freshly made every day.
Come into physical balance with daily yoga classes that will flex your muscles as well as your mind and spirit. Anyone can do yoga! If you’re breathing you can do yoga! No physical limitations prevent you from participating – use a chair if you need to.
Create emotional balance and mental clarity with mindfulness practices aimed at permanent weight loss via mindful eating meditations and general stress reduction so you’ll learn how to better cope with the stresses in your life. No one gains weight because they don’t know proper nutrition. Mindfulness opens the doors to gently explore limiting beliefs that are often covered with food or other addictions.
Each day offers:
Physical practices – choose from yoga, hiking, gardening, bird watching
Discussions and workshops to help change unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaviour
Gluten free, organic juices, smoothies, soups & salads
Tea & snacks 24/7
Peace and quiet
Free time to reflect, nap, or climb a tree
New connections, new friends, create a new healthy relationship to yourself
“I absolutely loved this retreat! I was worried i would be hungry because I have hypoglycemia but I wasn’t at all! Several years ago I had a stroke and suffer with chronic fatigue but a few days into the retreat I found I had more energy than I’ve had since before the stroke.
I’m grateful for this retreat. I’ve learned so much about eating a plant based diet, how to prepare the food, and wonderful recipes. Liz and Kurt are very accommodating and go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. I’ve already booked my next retreat!" - , Toronto
