Give yourself the best possible start to the new year with a full detox for the body and mind. Detoxing not only helps you eliminate what no longer serves you but it creates a space for the new to enter. Enjoy a few days of peace in nature, give yourself a chance to breathe, and experience the wonderful effects of this ancient practice. This is your opportunity to start the year in the best possible way.
During the retreat, you will be accommodated at Cal Pau Cruset. The property is made up of a main building and three smaller houses.

This eight-day detox program is a job that goes deeper thorough the knowledge of the guidelines that “govern” everyone in the day to day lives, through a process of realization where you enter into that inner monologue you draw daily. With the support of your diaries, you will observe the guidelines that you would like to eliminate in order to return to your routine.
The stream of consciousness process is a trip that will take you into the lower levels of your routines that you normally don’t have access to. It awakens you to what you have decided to nurture during your day-to-day lives, observing the story you have decided to tell and immerse yourself in, and if you want to continue narrating it in the same way. It’s a window into yourself through which you can travel with your thoughts and emotions; it’s a door to your true essence.
Being in contact with nature, breathing techniques, movement, and meditation helps to create a friendly environment where you can connect with your essence and take a rest for a few days from the hustle and bustle you are so accustomed to.
Slimming down or losing weight through fasting is a consequence of this process, but it is not the motivation. Fasting is not recommended as a diet to lose weight, and Eco Detox doesn’t see it as such.
During the retreat, you will experience a trip to the interior, from rest, relaxation, and self-observation. Along with the proposals, you will enter stage in a state of continuous presence from where you can observe your inner monologue, the story that you tell in your day to day. This program gives you a space of time to give you a break and reconnect with your life energy.
Through breathing techniques based in yoga and meditation exercises, you will realize and understand how you breathe, how it influences your daily lives, and how stress affects the rhythm of your breathing.
A combination of rest and moderate exercise is advisable when fasting, for example short walks and gentle yoga classes. Eco Detox recommends taking part in the breathing and movement classes in order to activate, in a relaxing way, those parts of the body that are involved in the cleansing process.
The consumption of alcohol and smoking is not compatible with the detox journey. If you are a smoker, you are asked to please leave the grounds to do so.
Techniques of concentration and breathing from ancient cultures are incorporated to create a space between your thoughts. With simple practices, you can incorporate these empty spaces of everyday life and to give your rushing minds a pause for a moment.
During the retreat, there will be classes with a nutritionist and naturopath. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about nutrition, as much about the process during the fast as well as your normal dietary routine.
Nutrition is principally about making the most of the nutrients in food whilst maintaining the balance of the organism at a molecular and macro-systemic level. Nutrition is the biological process in which organisms assimilate food and fluids necessary for operation, growth, and the maintenance of its vital functions.
Near the house, there are some paths that will leave nature at your disposal. Contact with nature is also part of the nutritional side of self-care; walking and breathing give you a high level of inner nutrition. The sunsets are stunning throughout the area.
Take advantage of the sunrise and sunset to discover this ancestral practice with Diego Arnold, a practitioner of sun gazing for more than a decade.
In the body, there is emotional memory that often is blocked and entails increased stress. Unlock some of these memories to feel lighter, unrestrained. You will identify movements and postures that help the body release these inner blocks.
Retrieving exercises and guidelines of Gestalt therapy very slightly enter into your psyche through exercises to realize, living in the here and now, bring presence to your experience.
Yoga is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as union. It seeks to deal with the combination of dynamics that connect your mind, body, and heart. This union may begin with a series of physical exercises and techniques, but ends with you taking this harmony from day to day, in the small details of your lives.
During the retreat, you will enjoy walks in the surrounding countryside to waterfalls and forests.

Equally, it is the perfect location to write, create art, or simply take a break from everyday life in the city. The calmness and beauty of the vineyards that surround the house make it a special place to disconnect from the urban bustle.
