A well balanced, highly informative and very enjoyable retreat. I am so glad I attended and feel I received excellent value for my investment of time and money! I highly recommend this retreat, congratulations Leisa.

I liked Leisa’s presentation style / knowledge and the quantity and quality of the information given to the participants. I thought Trudy / Kate / Maggie did a great job of supporting Leisa to make the retreat so successful.

Thank you very much for the really wonderful experience I has at the Yanchep Retreat. I had a terrific time and came away with a lot of very useful information and am enthusiastic to continue the healthy habits I was introduced to during the week. I found the content of the lectures to be very interesting and the timetable well balanced. All in all, I had a bloody great time!

I loved the whole experience, the nice peaceful environment, enjoyed the views from our chalet and especially the feeling that we were the only occupants there. We kind of had everything for ourselves – you hardly saw other people there. For me a retreat like this is not about luxury but peace and quiet and a natural environment – and we had all of that! The team was great! I always felt well looked after and everyone was so knowledgeable even the “kitchen aids”. The detox program was great! You were including every little bit of our bodies. Of course I’m still on a raw diet and I’m feeling really good and energetic! I really thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, thanks for everything Leisa, it was really nice to meet you in person.

I just wanted to say, the retreat was (I cannot even find a word to tell you how I felt about it), – I did not want it to end so soon. I hope that I can get to another one. Take care of yourself and best of success in everything you do.

This was my first retreat so I had nothing to compare it to, but I have to say it was absolutely fantastic! I learned so much; not just from the lectures, but from the whole fasting / raw food, detoxing experience as well as the little tidbits of information that you gain from the group discussions and from chatting to the other “retreatees”.

Thank you Leisa for a truly wonderful week of health and knowledge. The week has been a fascinating journey. When I arrived I was full of aches and pains as well as being tired and rundown due to my hectic lifestyle. I have come from feeling like I could not get out of bed in the morning to jumping out of bed to have a jog (something I have not done for many years). Not only do I feel absolutely fantastic, I have skills and knowledge to take with me to enhance my life from here on in. I am very grateful to you and your wonderful caring team for the work, knowledge, effort and patience you have given all of us this week. Your attention to detail from the goodie bags on arrival to the hand-outs and lists of resources is truly appreciated. Thank you Leisa, Trudy, Trish and Annie.

It was great to take time out and do the six day detox program with Leisa at the Embracing Life! Retreat. It wasn’t arduous at all, as the juices were delicious and sustaining and the raw food tasty and well presented. There were many little touches that showed thought and attention to detail. I feel re-invigorated with fresh enthusiasm to incorporate the raw food style of living into my families life. I heartily recommend this program to anyone interesting true “health insurance”. Apart from not having colonics, I think the program was well rounded and complete.

The experience of being one of the first people in the first group to experience the first Embracing Life! Retreat, I feel truly grateful. Leisa Wheeler and her team are sensational. My life is more positive and I feel very healthy. Also I have gained so much more knowledge. Thank you Leisa, you are very special.

“Thank you! I have learnt heaps of information to use at home. Impressed with the retreat and appreciate how much effort has been put in. Feel great!”

Lowest stress, most enjoyable detox ever. Got lots of great info to take home.

Leisa and her team have created an amazing space where I felt totally relaxed and nurtured. Having experienced detox retreats during my path to healing and well being, Embracing Life! Retreat certainly delivered, and surpassed all my expectations! Leisa’s attention to detail fulfilled my hearts desires while detoxing – wonderful massages, concise and understandable lectures, delicious organic juices, rainbow coloured raw food meals, far infra-red sauna’s were re-energising, energetic morning walks, serene and calming yoga, wonderful discussions with like-minded souls. I would absolutely recommend the Embracing Life! Retreat to anyone interested in radiant, vibrant health!

Leisa, you covered everything you promised and more. Your team was excellent, your knowledge is amazing. Thank you for helping me in life and guiding me in this crazy world. Can’t wait for the next one! God Bless.

Leisa went to such attention to detail with the little touches – e.g. organic soap, skin brushes, journal, face mask etc. the food was superb – no expense spared as far as organic fruit and vegetables – taste was superior. The talks were very informative and interesting – Leisa is very knowledgeable. Also Trish, Trudy and Annie were excellent. I enjoyed this retreat very much.
