Autumn retreat: harvest-time grape monodiet and introduction to water fasting

Date: 6th – 9th October 2017 (Friday 5pm – Monday 1pm).
Location: Vászoly, Balaton felvidék (Hungary).
Price: 50,000 HUF / 55,000 HUF (see below), additional 10% discount to couples.
Maximum number of participants: 12.

Four day / three night retreat centred around a grape monodiet and 36-hour water fast.

Goals of the retreat:
– to feel the energy and lightness of a grape monodiet.
– to experience what it means to live through and perhaps even enjoy 36 hours without food.
– to gain the confidence necessary to undertake longer fasts, such as a three-day water fast, in which deeper detox and other health benefits can take place.
– to help develop healthier eating habits in everyday life.

Description:
This retreat is designed as an introduction to water fasting.  No prior experience of any kind of fasting is necessary.  The aim is not to deprive yourself through a lack of food, but rather to feel that fasting is an opportunity to love your body.  Giving your body the chance to detoxify and cleanse itself through a monodiet / water fast is a wonderful way to express this love!  In return your body will love you back :-).

More information here about the one-day (36-hour) water fast and the three-day water fast.

In addition to the fast itself, there will be numerous optional activities through the day, including:
— walks in nature
— a daily run through the forest for anyone with extra energy 🙂
— yoga and meditation
— talks on diet, fasting and cleansing
— sharing of experiences and feelings through the length of the fast
— overcoming fears about fasting
— games for self-discovery and further outdoor activities (weather permitting)

Location:
We are fortunate to be staying in an ideal location for fasting: in a quiet valley, approximately a kilometre away from the nearest village, directly on the edge of the forest, with a stream running through the property.  There are several local springs within easy walking distance.
