THE WHOLE TRUTH RETREAT: Summer 2016

Hearth & Soul Eco Retreat, Western Cape

Heart Flow DEC 16 no strip.jpg

HEART FLOW-

16th-22nd Dec 2016

This 7 day retreat, Heart Flow,  is centred around reattuning to the wisdom, capacity and resilience of the heart.  Recognised in the Yogic tradition as the seat of consciousness, the heart is a channel for connection and awakening, and is the wellspring of love, compassion and gratitude in our lives. 

Through disarming our habitual defensiveness and touching the tender spaces of the heart, we move out of resistance and into effortless flow.

Over 7 days you will have the opportunity to:

  • reset the body’s systems for health and find your way of eating for wellness

  • develop awareness, presence and steadiness to bring you back in touch with your basic wisdom and goodness

  • peel back the filters that limit your perspective and potential and find new insight and direction

  • nurture free expression and fearlessness for a joyful, creative life

  • connect with the deep intelligence of your own life force, the natural world, and universal consciousness

VENUE:

Hearth & Soul is an eco farm and spiritual retreat with a difference. Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful Overberg region, the 220 hectare farm lies just outside of Stanford and around 160 kilometres from Cape Town.

Surrounded by trees and mountains, this eco retreat is a creative and inspirational sanctuary far from the stresses of modern life; a sacred space for meditation and reflection, healing and transformation, rest and rejuvenation.

MENU:

This retreat has a raw food menu on the first and last days to ease you into and out of the 5 day organic juice cleanse. Raw food meals and juices are thoughtfully and lovingly created, and will astound you with their unbelievably delicious tastes and variety, and inspire you to a new way of feeding yourself and your family.

We use locally sourced, organically grown fruit and vegetables, as we've found that high quality, fresh produce offers you the deepest and most complete cleanse, and restores your body to a state of balance and satisfied nourishment.

 

We grow our own wheatgrass and microgreens, vibrant with life force and phytonutrients for only-just-harvested plant power. Preferring supplements from natural sources, we wild harvest the renowned South African remedy Aloe ferox for juicing and brew our own alkalising apple cider vinegar tonic.

Feeding yourself cleanly, lightly and naturally for a full 7 days allows you to experience your body in a state of wellness that you may never have felt before.

How you transition from a juice fast to solid food again is important. To avoid the possibility of a roadside pie landing in a freshly cleansed and rested gut, we send our retreatants home with takeaways! Convenience, good digestion, excellent nutrition and high vibrations all in one delicious package :)
