Integrative/ Holistic Medicine We provide integral health services including dietary medicines, detoxification cleanses and mind-body practices. We work with numerous medicinal plants and healing-modalities to further holistic health of the mind, body, heart and spirit. All guests receive delicious and nutritious vegetarian meals. They also benefit from daily detox-juices, herbal teas and optional meditation and yoga instruction.
We receive a maximum of 8 guests per retreat to ensure that each individual receives the personalized attention they require on their unique path of awakening.
