Body, mind, and soul cleansing

Whilst you are fasting (abstinence from food), your body will be purged of long-term accumulated toxins, and acid wastes which are affecting its ability to absorb nutrients and potentially adding to dis-ease in your body. The retreat activates your body’s innate healing capacity to renew, rejuvenate, and refresh all of it’s cells, organs, bodily systems, and blood.

Practitioner prescribed herbs and natural supplements are utilised to literally “pull out” the toxins via the body’s elimination pathways i.e. colon, skin, kidneys, liver, lungs, and lymph nodes. Moreover, the additional support of enemas, dry skin brushing, yoga, meditation, massages, spa and sauna, gentle exercise, fresh organic juices, organic broth soups, and herbal teas ensures a deep and thorough cleanse. Daily detox shakes (4-5 per day) consisting of juice, bentonite clay, and psyllium husk have a huge impact on depth of detoxification.

Sample schedule

  • Day 1: You arrive in the afternoon, with personal intake consultations starting from approximately 2 pm onwards. After having settled into their room, you will have a group retreat orientation in the afternoon where they connect and retreat.
  • Day 2: You start the day with a gentle yoga class, and then an education workshop on the digestive system. In the afternoon, half of you all typically have a massage while the other half enjoys a steam, sauna, and spa session. A guided mediation class in the afternoon slows guests down before the informative documentary session in the evening. Day two is about slowing the body down and getting familiar with the daily detox process.
  • Day 3: You typically begin day with a light mat class, exploring, and specifically working with the organs. After some private sessions of more massages and spa, you will finish the day with an education doco on the big movie projector screen.
  • Day 4: The day starts with another yoga class and then a great nutrition workshop in the middle of the day. Lots of private sessions happening, as Natural Instinct Healing goes deeper into the guests’ personal process. For those without private sessions, there is plenty of time to relax with a book poolside in the afternoon, before being guided into a deeper relaxation during the evening guided meditation.
  • Day 5: The morning exercise class is typically getting back to nature with a beautiful bush walk through private trails on Gymea’s land. The next sessions will be private sessions and massages in the afternoon, some ‘homework’, and reflection for tomorrow’s workshop. Another inspirational documentary shown in the evening.
  • Day 6: Yoga kicks off the day and then the guests will be rolled straight into an Enneagram workshop, focusing on your self-awareness and all that is the unique you. A down day for guests to reflect on the process and check in that we are on track with what you set out to achieve.
  • Day 7: You will head over to a beautiful Northern New South Wales beach for a relaxing walk and refreshing swim in the ocean. You arrive back from the beach to massages and spa sessions, and then a powerful “Conscious Cleansing” workshop as they explore how your emotional and spiritual health affects our physical body. Your choice on the movie tonight!
  • Day 8: Another deeper yoga class this morning, as the body increases in flexibility and function from previous classes and the detox experience. Then you have a “post-retreat” workshop where you can explore Natural Instinct Healing’s ongoing support channels, and always a great chance for food questions and answers and practical recipe ideas for post-retreat eating! The afternoon is spent preparing the body for the liver flush drink in the evening and a fire ceremony to close the detox process.
  • Day 9: Today is all about celebrating the experience with breaking-fast! You typically break-fast at around 9 am giving the group a chance to reflect and share their experience before finishes the program at approximately 10-11 a.m.
