THE WHOLE TRUTH RETREAT: Spring 2017
Crystal Kloof Conservancy, Overberg, Western Cape
27th-31st Oct 2017
At this women's retreat, we explore and illuminate the deep wisdom and incredible power of feminine energy in its full and integrated expression.
As our world cries out for gentler, nourishing and nurturing relationships to each other and the earth we can begin to dismantle the structures of a society that has favoured competition, domination and force over the strength and softness found in sharing, support and sisterhood.
Using bespoke women's herbal treatments, mindful movement, fasting, plant medicine and beautiful practices for self-care we visit our vulnerability and seek to heal and make meaning of individual and collective trauma. As we honour and understand the flow of feminine energy in and around us, we enter into a new paradigm of authentic power.

Uncover your body’s vibrant state of being through our programme of physical cleansing and natural nutrition

Crystal Kloof is an untouched paradise of mossy forest, waterfall and mountain majesty, offering off-the-grid, earth-built accommodation. Weather permitting, some nights may be spent sleeping at other tented or open air locations on the conservancy.
This retreat has a raw food menu on the first and last days to ease you into and out of the 3 day cleansing fast. 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 allows you to experience your body in a state of wellness that you may never have felt before.
A warm and wholesome welcome with these Whole Truth Retreat raw food snacks- buckwheat onion bread, seed crackers, raw vegan cream cheese, spiced cashews, and organic strawberries. Hello!
Our last meal at the Whole Truth Retreat- the kitchen alchemy gave us gold!

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 :)
