Kauai retreats are taking place in OMline Ashram's homestead. Located on two beautiful acres in the east shore or the coconut coast of Kauai, the magical Garden Island. The homestead is a place of peace, tranquility, bliss, and real life practical training for a healthier and happier you. Most of the Island of Kauai is a natural preserve. It is maintained by mother nature herself and will never be populated or destroyed by humans, as it simply cannot be reached by land. The unique body of land in Kauai guaranties that nature will always be more dominant than human. It's as if mother nature got dressed up in her most amazing dress and she does not want to take it off or replace it with another.
During this retreat, you will enjoy the best raw food menu you have ever tasted. All fresh alkaline raw vegan meals are served three times a day. Raw sandwiches are prepared for lunch, which you can take with you to the beach or on an adventure. You will also be able to participate in a raw alkaline cooking class where you will learn the techniques that enable raw food to taste just like the foods you like.
The staff at OMline Ashram know from experience that eating living foods is the most nourishing and healing diet you can have but they also love good tasting foods. So they will teach you how to make the foods that you already like with the flavors that you already love in the raw form. That way you will never experience a cultural or culinary shock and you will have lots of fun back home in your own kitchen after the retreat.
