We have a safe and supportive environment where you will wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning and go to bed at night with the silence of the stars. We are in a tranquil valley, away from the regular tourist areas, and our staff will guide you and support you through the juice fasting and detoxificiation cleansing process.
We start every day with yoga or and meditation or chi gong, and finish every day with meditation.

Who needs to fast?

Just about everybody benefits from juice fasting and juice detoxification. Even those who live a relatively healthy life-style still have toxins. Due to old and often bad nutritional habits, environmental pollutants, stresses and strains of life situations most of us suffer from toxic deposits throughout the body. With the elimination of these toxins, remarkable and sometimes incredible changes can and have occurred.

Fasting affects body, mind and spirit

For Body: Fasting provides a much-needed rest for the internal organs. The functions of restores and normalizes glandular, metabolic and nervous-system functions; speeding up the elimination of morbid accumulations, toxic wastes and dead cells; accelerating new cell and tissue generation and enhancing cell-oxygenation.

For Mind: As the physical body detoxifies, rejuvenates and regenerates, the mind begins to function more efficiently. During the fast, the digestive system has a rest, freeing up energy for other things. This energy is used by the mind - bringing mental clarity.Juice Fasting and Detoxification develops mental will power and increased control over the senses and mind.

For Spirit: All the major religions practice fasting in some form or another. Juice Fasting allows the body and mind to become still, and in the stillness, one is more likely to tune into the secrets of Life, and to connect with Spirit.
