The detox program that this retreat will focus on is designed by TheDetoxIsland, the biggest specialist ongoing year round drop-in detox retreats in Europe. What is a detox for them? They are not talking about food detox only. This concept could be nowadays misunderstood, as one can find many definitions or many ways to be implemented. At TheDetoxIsland, they understand a detox as a process with four steps.
First, it is realizing that you need to stop and rethink about your habits, patterns, attitudes, relationships, circumstances, and about your life. People usually say one needs fresh air, take distance, escape the routine, take a break, or get off.
Second, it is realizing that you need on one hand to be in a place away from that inertia, routine, away from interruptions and duties to get some clarity. And on the other hand, you need to feel empowered to change, get rid off, quit, or just re-evaluate. You would usually ask yourself, "How am I going to do it, can I do it, what if this or that?".
Third, it is realizing that you need some cleansing at all levels, on your mind, to gain clarity and direction, on your emotions, to get empowerment and commitment, and on the physical, to take sustainable actions. Last, to start up with, sign up with them, come, and get some tools to explore and experience a new you.
First, everyone needs at some point of their life to stop and rethink, their very inertia will crush them. Second, this is the perfect place, Lanzarote Island, to take distance and clarify thoughts and plan actions.
Third, each one is at different point or moments in their life. TheDetoxIsland has a program for every need and person. Sometimes, they focus more on the physical such as food disorders, lack of vitality, or aging fast because it is the goal of the detox program. Sometimes, they focus more on the emotional such as stress out, anxiety, partner break-up, or lost in transition, or the mental such as midlife crisis, lack of motivation, or hyperactivity. But every step is a cornerstone of another.
Lastly, life is short, detox what is not yours anymore and follow your new dreams. This detox program combines perfectly well with hiking and excursions, giving the time to explore by yourself the island or just relax in our rural retreat, reading, chatting with other guests, etc. TheDetoxIsland just provides the conditions and the atmosphere, you take as much as you need or want.
