Lose the holiday bloat and enjoy greater clarity, zest and radiance.  This revitalizing and deeply restorative retreat offers a jumpstart for weight loss and guidance for establishing healthy lifestyle habits.  Perhaps most importantly though, this retreat allows you to slow your pace, attune to deeper aspects of your self and your life, and experience a journey of awakening.

Key aspects include:

  • Delicious, organic cleansing soups and green smoothies
  •  Practical approach to vibrant nutrition
  • Tips for eating well in a busy life
  • Tapping into body wisdom for when and what to eat
  • Practices for finding peace in this stressful, changing world
  • Mindful eating, meditation and prayer
  • Self inquiry
  • Yoga and walking

Past participants of the Revitalizing Cleanse often report deep and lasting changes.

1. I’ve been enjoying Alison’s cleansing program annually for the past 19 years. It’s been life changing on many levels. While my initial expectation was limited to just losing a few pounds, I’ve ended up benefiting in so many more ways.

Alison’s program goes well beyond simply fasting or dieting. It encourages self-exploration, growth, acceptance, and love. It is about bringing body, mind and spirit into balance. Every time I go through her program, I experience a transformation. – A.  R, Classical Pianist, Qigong Teacher

2. I have done cleanses with Alison Shore Gaines over a period of 20 years.  She creates a safe, attentive and loving environment in which to cleanse.

She draws from an impressive number of disciplines in holistic health and alternative care. I have taken so much of her knowledge and teaching and have used it as a foundation in my journey for a healthier, mature and more spiritual lifestyle.  It would be an understatement to say that Alison has affected my life in a profound way. – E.K.,Registered Nurse, Age 70

I have been to several cleansing retreats with Alison Gaines over the last eighteen years. Two at Kripalu and one in Austin, Texas (Omega Institute’s The Crossing)

3. I found it very surprising that I never felt really hungry because smoothies or soup are served four times a day, with access between servings if hungry or lightheaded.

Alison’s retreats are calming, much more than other detox programs I have attended, because she weaves relaxation techniques like mindful eating, yoga, meditation and visualization throughout the program. – Becky S. Richmond, Virginia
