"My experience at Eco-detox was fabulous! At the same time as purifying my body I achieved a spiritual peace, relaxation and above all the experience of sharing with others, disconnecting from the stress of work. It helped me to be more conscious about what I am eating and I have kept up the habit of juicing at the weekends, and I feel so much better now I eat a healthier and more balanced diet. It even helped me to reduce my allergy problems. Diego and Juli are very attentive, always looking out for how you are feeling in every moment. I am very grateful, thank you!"

"For me the experience of this retreat was really beautiful, I had a lot of fun and at the same time discovered a unique sensitivity and empathy that you can achieve when juicing.You can feel and experience everyday things with more depth and beauty, which is a feeling I have not been able to achieve before or since. I am looking forward to repeating!"

"The experience of Eco-detox was completely enriching on all levels. I discovered many new activities that I was doing for the first time like bio-dance, sun-gazing (both of which I am now a total fan!). I also discovered juices and soups made with love and care, and that laughs and sharing with your fellow group members, who are passing through the same experience of cleansing, is extremely special. I feel very fortunate and privileged for having formed part of the first Eco-detox retreat and I hope to repeat soon! Thank you to all the group and thank you to the organizers for creating an oasis of peace and beauty."
