Got to go to Gozo…

Posted on January 31st, 2015

RamlaThere are many reasons to go to Gozo – for its beauty, its sunny climate, its ancient temples…. but if you care about your health, then our retreat there on 24 April – 1st May is a must!!

Our biomedic consultant Beverley McGowan has been over here rsz_img_1425in the UK giving talks on her approach to wellbeing – and underlined for us once again, that if you have any kind of health condition, you need to address the causes, not just the symptoms – which is all you can get from modern medicine.  Otherwise your problem is likely to return.

The health analysis she provides for those on the retreat can empower you to bring your own unique body back to homeostasis – a state of balance from which healing can occur.  Nutrition and detoxing, , which we do on the retreat via the gentle method of organic juicing, are an important part of this, which can also help you find and maintain your perfect weight.  Dealing with the causes of stress and unhappiness in life is also a vital aspect.  As part of a small group, you get individualised attention and mentoring, as well as the support of fellow retreaters and opportunities to join in activities and talks which will serve to help you maintain your resolutions once you return.

Gozo is a very special island, whose name means ‘Joy’ in Castillian, and whose association with healing goes back into rsz_photo_146prehistory.  We hope that you can join us there in April – so that you can find that place of balance and peace in time for a lovely long summer….

Some comments from past participants:

“I lost half a stone in the 5 day juice period, and have managed to keep it off since! I am also implementing the resolutions I made and have made positive choices in my life. I loved the island!” Linda, (fulltime mum, UK)

“Jenny and Robin took care of us with genuine commitment and warmth – they truly go the extra mile. And the island was magical – I gained many special memories..” Vera, (Interfaith minister and social worker, UK)

“I really benefitted from the dynamics of the group, the space available to spread out, having the juices ready, no prep, no washing up – all the positive things about juicing and raw, without the hassle! I have been working on arthritis in my right hip and a knot of pain above my left hip – this has completely gone, and I have lost 5lbs of fluid, toxins and fat!” (Roz, semi-retired)
