For centuries people have been juice cleansing in one way or another to detoxify their bodies and enhance the digestive systems’ natural function. Peace Retreats offers a platform to explore and be supported in a juice cleanse retreat within a beautiful, serene and natural environment.
Discover the best of self care, as well as the highlights of the area of the retreat you choose. As you retreat from a daily routine to connect to the peace within, that peace expands. With Peace Retreats, participants are guided on all aspects of wellness for body, mind and spirit while exploring highlights of nature in the area. Through guided meditation, yoga, qigong, massage, hydrotherapy and juice cleansing practices, one will feel the peace at the core of the true human essence. All of these activities are included in the Peace Retreat. Each retreat also includes serene nature settings, walks and activities that will enhance the complete experience. The dates selected for each location include ‘off season’ highlights of the area, which create serenity while maintaining opportunity for spectacular weather.
With professional reference staff of naturopathic medicine, qigong, acupuncture, nutritionist, seasoned massage therapy and sound healers, participants will experience and learn about the art of self care. This knowledge has been cultivated and packaged to guide participants on a complete juice cleanse to rejuvenate the body and awaken the soul. Participants are also guided into and out of the life-transforming cleanse prior to arriving and after leaving the retreat. Three days prior to – and post retreat, participants will receive guidance via videos and conference calls to ensure all questions and practices are cultivated with grace and ease.
Each retreat will vary depending on how remote the retreat location is and the interest of each participant. Please look to the Peace Retreat Contract to specialize your experience.
