As above so below - Dream activation

The emotional body and physical body cannot be separated and therefore to experience real positive transformation in either, both must be addressed. Dreams can reveal our toxic behaviors and patterns, giving us the opportunity to release them. During the detox retreat participants are invited to a series of informal talks and exercises to open up to the dream realm, and begin to explore this fascinating and expansive practice of self-examination.

    "I am truly amazed because my body now refuses processed food and is starving for natural things. I used to find it hard to listen to my body’s needs but now I am so much more aware of what it really wants and craves."

  • Review by G. Remington

    "I am extraordinarily grateful to have had the chance to spend a week getting to know myself again. This process forced me to rethink how I’ve been treating myself both physically and emotionally. I have a whole new appreciation of what I am capable of. I finished the program feeling more in control, energetic, optimistic, centred and refreshed, and my skin looks better too. I feel equipped with the tools to make smart decisions about my body and about my life. Thank you!"
