    "I came here to rediscover and make a new beginning and I think it has been really helpful for that. And I’ve noticed certain things happening in my body already. Some lumps and bumps on my skin and in my nose, they started to go away. My skin has smoothed out. And it gave me new hope."

    "As a complete newcomer to raw food this was a great introduction to all the amazing and varied dishes you can create just with raw food. I had no idea and I was really pleasantly surprised by how incredible all the food was, it was a real eye opener and I had so much more energy than normal. It really was so informative and all of this in such beautiful surroundings, how could you not feel refreshed after such a relaxing week. Even the early start for yoga was well worth it!"
