Even though I have done other detoxification programs, I still found this an extremely valuable and enjoyable learning experience. Leisa is such an inspiring person and so passionate about health that one feels motivated to make changes in ones lifestyle and eating habits. The juices and food are so delicious and easy to make. Information on the Green Smoothie Challenge; that one can go on the website, obtain recipes etc, just the idea of commitment to doing this is so good, so easy and this information can be given to family and friends. The staff at the retreat are all such beautiful, knowledgeable informed people and the other participants so enthused and friendly that the experience is a positive, supportive one. I can wholeheartedly recommend this retreat. Thank you Leisa & staff.

I am so grateful to my family for giving me this time, and I really loved it and in return, learned a lot so I can nurture them with everything I experienced. Thank you all for your love and support. Oh! Wisdom and healing.

I thought my lifestyle was healthy and balanced until spending a week with Leisa at the Embracing Life! Retreat at Uki. I have been inspired, motivated and educated to eat more raw foods. Her attention to detail was impeccable and I have come away feeling nurtured and energised. My experience here has been life changing!! Anyone wishing to improve mind, body and spirit can not afford to miss her next retreat. I will be back next year!

I came to the retreat knowing that I was to be here, I had NO questions about that. I was in need of time out on all levels of my being. No physical illness, but I didn’t want to wait for one occur. Prevention is better than cure!! As we all know! The retreat fulfilled every aspect. There was time alone to reconnect and find myself. There was knowledge, time with the group, lectures and discussions. The physical body was rested, cleansed, nurtured, sunned, pampered and fed wonderful raw food. Friendships were made from very old friends from another time. A place where you could be with like-minded souls, sometimes that is rare. The whole package is just fantastic! Life changing on many, many levels. Thank you again for creating this space, I was truly honoured to be here!

Thanks Embracing Life! Girls, I had a very relaxing, happy week. Learnt heaps!

I don’t want anyone to know about the great experience I had at the Embracing Life! Retreat….
I don’t want to write this…
I really don’t want to write this…

I want to send my terminally ill friend to the next retreat.
I want to send my totally exhausted friend to the next retreat.
I want to send the friend who has just maybe survived cancer to the next retreat AND I want to come myself.

So that’s 4 places. Then I know that the other beautiful women and men I have spent this last week with are also going to want to send ones they love and want to help. There is just no room for the throng that will arrive when word gets out about Leisa and the life changing information she has to impart! Leisa – you need to take an apprentice on now!

Travelling across the continent to WA! It was a pleasure to meet so many new people and to also meet those that I had only spoken to over the phone. A wonderful group of people to spend a week with!

The return on my investment (ROI) exceeded my expectations. I came to the retreat looking for an “instant fix” to my health issues and instead rediscovered my passion and purpose. The challenge now will be to keep the momentum. The way is so much clearer now the fog has lifted. A lot more work to do but I have cleansed the physical body and kick-started a healthier lifestyle and topped up the emotional tank along the way. Leisa and her team live the healthy life. An empowering, life changing experience that has raised the bar in so many ways. Well done ladies.

The Embracing Life! Retreat has motivated me to do some deep soul searching. On reflection, I find it is easy to neglect myself in the “busy buzz” of everyday living. This inspirational retreat has got me back on track to healthy eating and to take some time out for self nurturing – me time. Thanks so much to Leisa and The Team.

A big thank you to the organisers for making me feel very at home. This retreat has given me such great information to take away with me to embark on such a healthier and better way of life. Not only good nutrition have I learnt, I have taken a good look at changes I also need to make in my life, with the people around me, my job and even myself. A great life changing experience for me. Thanks Leisa for being you, and I thank God I found you xxxxx

A big thank you to Leisa and ALL of her team! The wonderful and empowering information and experience has been inspiring and stimulating. Retreats like this should be a part of every busy woman’s life. I go home rested and renewed and in just 6 days the pain has gone from my hands and arms. Please come back to WA! P.S. Another thank you for making the retreat affordable so that it is within the reach of a greater number of people who need this essential understanding of a better and healthier way to live. Hopefully one day the greater numbers of people who choose to live well and care for the environment will sway the medics and politicians globally to stop leading us “up the garden path”

For me to be able to come away lighter in weight, clearer in body and soul with the tools to bring this lifestyle into my home and life is a blessing. Thank you to all the wonderful staff and to Leisa – well done for following your dream!

The wonderful knowledge and insight gained has been amazing. I wish I had this experience 30 years ago before I raised a family! What a head-start in nutrition information I would have had. Hooray for Raw! + Wow! For Superfoods.

“I’M NEVER GOING TO COOK ANOTHER MEAL AGAIN” isn’t a threat now! It’s a healthy sounding promise. I never need “slog” over the stove again! I never knew a “gourmet three course raw meal” was so delicious. I’m changing my ‘title’ from Cook to “Gourmet Fresh Food Designer”.
