Raw Radiance Retreat - September 2012

I've got some mighty exciting news to share with you guys! In September I will be teaming up with Ulla Devine of Devine Health, a local practicing Colon Hydrotherapist, for an inspiring three day retreat in south central British Columbia, Canada.

For years Ulla has been holding the vision of offering an opportunity for local people to experience the benefits of a detox retreat without having to pay an exorbitant price and go to an exotic destination. Together we'll be bringing this dream to fruition at the 'Raw Radiance Retreat' which will take place from Thursday Sept 20 to Sunday Sept 23, 2012.

Here are all of the juicy details...

Raw Radiance Retreat
September 20th – 23rd, 2012

Experience the power of raw and living foods to achieve vibrant health!

Join Ulla Devine, certified Colon Hydrotherapist, and Carmella Soleil of the award winning Sunny Raw Kitchen blog for an inspiring three day detox retreat in the heart of the magical Slocan Valley in British Columbia, Canada.

Detoxification is a key element in attaining a healthy and disease free body. The informed proper use of detoxification methods combined with nutrient rich living foods give the body a chance to detoxify and heal itself naturally. 

Our intention for the Raw Radiance Retreat is twofold:
  • We wish to give you a focused opportunity to actually experience the power of raw and living foods to restore health and clean the body.
  • We want to provide you with a number of simple and effective tools that you can take home with you and easily incorporate into your daily routine, so that you can continuously progress on your health journey.

In the course of these 3 days you will learn how to:
  • Make energizing juices, tasty and nutritious smoothies, sexy salads, creamy comforting raw soups and nourishing yet simple entrees without the fuss
  • Successfully transition to and maintain a mostly raw vegan diet
  • Build simple daily food prep routines to keep going at home
  • Exercise efficiently in a matter of minutes every day
  • Make easy relaxation practices a regular part of each day
  • Quickly remove toxins from your body
