Sunshine Coast, QLD

We kicked off Spring with a fantastic retreat at Nirvana at Coolum Beach in QLD. We had a very fun group of people share a fantastic week together and it was life changing for many involved. Thanks for your wonderful comments!

This six days has taught and inspired me so much. I am amazed at the information and knowledge that Leisa has passed on. She is an amazing role model and exposes her own journey in life also, which tells me that is why she is so understanding of other people’s ailments. I will be returning in 12 months as this is truly inspirational, releasing, and to be with like minded people is fabulous. Thank you Leisa from the bottom of my heart – continue to shine!

Leisa, thank you very much for offering your retreats. You have shown perfectionism at its best – your detailed planning, experience, knowledge and organisational talents have made the retreat a pleasure.

The selection of your team was excellent – Jo, Belinda and Trish were all very well trained, friendly and more than capable for all the tasks at hand. It is easy to imagine that the logistics behind the scenes included hard work, but this was hidden to us participants, allowing us a really carefree time. I am very grateful for your additional attention and help, when it turned out that I wasn’t coping so well with the juice fasting.Thank you for having reacted quickly and efficiently to getting me through the issues.

Your teachings were very enjoyable, covered many topics and were very well prepared and explained. The food you and your team prepared for us was excellent. Thank you for all the recipes, they’re a great addition to my collection!

The amount of ‘busy’ time compared to ‘free’ time was just right. Also it is really good that you’re offering walks, yoga, sauna visits, massage and the Art therapy class. I especially enjoyed the personal touch you have been able to give to the event, shown in ‘little’ things – the colour coding from binders to serviettes, the gift bag at the beginning and at the end, flowers, music, DVD’s…

Your love of what you are doing, and your dedication to the retreat and all of your clients is very visible and highly appreciated. Thank you for an unforgettable time, Leisa!

Thank you Leisa, Jo, Belinda & Trish. I believe I now have the information I need to take control of my own life.

Thank you Leisa for your passion, determination and quest for knowledge in this important part of our lives, & to create the retreats. They are such an important part of the process for people to learn how they can live healthier lifestyles.

The retreat created an almost ‘family’ type environment where everyone felt at ease to ask a question or share an experience.

Thank you for the time, effort & devotion you have put in to put the retreats together, in particular the bringing together of your knowledge and the important information you have learned from others that you have soopenly shared with us at the lectures – great notes. Well done Leisa & the ‘Team’

Dear Leisa. You are a warm and gracious leader, a skilled educator and a beautiful, beautiful person. Thank you so much for an amazing retreat,. It far exceeded all my expectations in every way. Many thanks also to the wonderful Jo, bubbly Belinda and your lovely mum Trish. I am so inspired by all of you, and so pleased I came to the “Embracing Life! Retreat”.

Following you “for years” through crossing paths at Hippocrates, this September 2009 retreat was a highlight The spirit, the charisma, the attention to detail, the amount of various things which were “put in”, the team with Leisa’s great leadership, the ambiance and the fellow guests made it what it was. I definitely plan to come back to the next retreat at Nirvana in six months.

Something good to do for your life. Leisa and her team are wonderful. It does get you thinking!

Well, what an action paced week! It has been both relaxing and exhilarating, from the yoga, the walks to the beach, to the meditation, the lectures and the massages. I came feeling very drained and tired and will return home feeling much different.

Leisa really knows her subject and has made a difference to the lives of everyone here this week. We are now armed with a huge amount of information to take back home and continue the journey to great health. I am looking forward to sharing the information with my family and friends. Thanks so much Leisa you are changing people’s lives!

Wow! This really took my awareness to a whole new level. The mix and the level of information that I received daily was inspiring and fortifying. This has helped me get to the next level in reversing Type 2 Diabetes and healing myself physically, emotionally and spiritually, with food and the awesome body that I was born into. Thank you for the inspiration, the hope and the many doors you helped me find & open!

Another retreat at the beautiful Nirvana on the Sunshine Coast of QLD! It was a group of wonderful people who were mainly new to detoxing and the raw food lifestyle, and the way they embraced the knowledge and the process of detoxing was amazing to witness. We had a fabulous week, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thanks everyone for the great testimonials below:

The first day of the detox was hard and I was not sure if I could do another two days – but the following 2 days got a lot easier and I could feel the benefits to my body. I lost the bloated feeling in my stomach and by the end of the third day I was actually wanting to go another one!

With the introduction of beautiful fresh Raw Food on the fourth day – WOW! It was like I could actually taste the individual flavours of each mouthful. It was like an explosion to my taste buds. I didn’t realise just how dead mine had been for so long! And the “Green Smoothie” – Yum!

My hair shines again and feels so soft, without any products! My skin has never felt or looked so fresh. I feel like a new woman!

I recommend a “Retreat” to EVERYONE!!!!

I was impressed by the tremendous amount of knowledge Leisa possesses, her passion about raw lifestyle, her spiritual and human background. She is a gentle, kind little angel who enlightens people around and shares her endless energy, making us better and healthier human beings on this planet. Thank you Leisa, Jo, Sally & Trish.

Thanks to Leisa and her passion for life, I have found a new life for myself and my family. To learn that I have been poisoning my family was a real eye opener for me. I will be going home to change our eating habits and look forward to many years of healthy, vitality life!

I was very impressed with the professional conduct of Leisa and the Staff. Leisa’s educational material was informative and interesting and very up to date! Personally I have valued the time away to recover, repair on all levels. I loved the introduction to Yoga stretches. The venue is superb, and a great lot of people. Thanks a million.
