Busselton, WA 2011
Busselton in WA is one of my favourite places to visit! Not only is there the glorious Geographe Bay and the magnificent beaches around the Dunsborough area, we always have a fantastic retreat here! The location is a great one for people in Perth and the surrounding areas to get to, and we have the most beautiful people come along and join us. This year was no exception – it was my fourth trip back to WA to run a retreat and what an amazing group of ladies participated. We developed such a great connection with each other, it was like being with family and we all gained a lot out of the experience – I can’t wait to come back next year to run an 8 night retreat!
An essential step in the healing process incorporating tools to share an transform your life!
This retreat was money well worth spending – Leisa’s knowledge of raw food diet was excellent. The professional way in which to retreat is held, together with the beautiful surroundings make you feel, very nurtured and cared for, creating a happy healing environment among friends. Well done and thank you Leisa.
Well, I am a repeat offender, and will be for some time to come! Each year I learn some new information to take home with me, not just about raw food but about the whole emotional, physical, spiritual well-being. It is very comforting to be surrounded and supported by like-minded people. All aspects are covered and they are all amazing – the food, body work, physical and emotional support, education and information sessions, yoga, venue. I really can’t fault anything at all! Most importantly my all round health just keeps getting better and my thanks go to embracing health retreats totally!
I met an amazing bunch of ladies, people from a vast variety of backgrounds who I normally wouldn’t. I learnt soooo much, the education was very useful and I am so happy I am now knowledgeable in this area. You have opened my eyes to a world of amazing nutrition and utmost love – My life has been changed and I cannot wait to get home. I came to lose weight and now my mind is, never diet, just make good nutritious food choices!
This is the first time I’ve tried going on a health retreat, and I admit that I was a little nervous about it at first. But after the first night, and then slowly as the course progressed, I was reassured that I was undertaking this retreat in a relaxed, restful, nurturing and very supportive environment. I’m so delighted to have met such wonderful people with such beautiful personalities – both retreat support crew and fellow retreatees – what a blessing! Leisa, you have been (and are) such an amazing leader throughout this experience, a fun, talented and very caring person – a beautiful soul – thank you for guiding us through this retreat. And Ange, your yoga classes were enlightening and a wonderful experience. What you’re doing Leisa, what you’ve made into your life’s mission, is so important to us all, not only is it life changing, it is life saving. And the sooner we all realise, the better the quality and enjoyment of life we can all live.
I’m 13 and my mum dragged me on the retreat. And… I loved it! The people were awesome! Really kind and helpful! The accommodation was so luxury! Also we had 3 days of juice fasting and that was fabulous! And the food was amazing! A warm thanks to Cat and Bell for all their help and cooking! Leisa for a great experience, Angie for all the yoga lessons and more! Elle for the lovely facial! And Darby, although I didn’t have a massage with him, being the only male must be hard!! Thanks so much everyone! Oh and to everyone who came on it! I swear I’ve never come across a chattier group. Lots of Love Luce P.S. I think we chatted more than we detoxed
My name is Gilly, I am 56 years old and I have just completed one of the most rewarding weeks of my life. Every participant came to this retreat for a different reason, some to relax, get pampered, to eat beautiful raw vegan food, to detox or just to spend time away from the husband, kids, work and spend time alone to reflect, dream and plan. This retreat has been so well planned you have time for all of this and more and a few surprises thrown in. One of the best parts is meeting new friends and sharing our stories of life with a lot of laughter a few tears and hugs in a very supporting and caring environment. Before I came to the retreat I had been feeling that life was really not what it’s cracked up to be, I was feeling sad, grumpy, depressed and uncertain of where my life was heading, I needed ‘time-out’ my health and wellbeing is important I deserved this me time. When I first arrived, I saw myself in the huge bathroom mirrors and I didn’t like what I saw a sad, blotchy face, bloated stomach, droopy shoulders and I thought ‘Where has Gilly Gone?” Well today after a beautiful yoga session on the beach, I got out of the shower looked in the mirror and saw in my eyes what I have not seen in years – me!
Thank you so much for an uplifting, invigorating experience. The attention to detail, knowledge and quest for priority and well-being from Leisa makes everything look easy and just so simple. How clever is that? The practioners and assistants are ‘second to none’ – all the team members were amazing in their own right and their own special healings, techniques and knowledge. I will thoroughly recommend your retreats to anyone who asks – for so many health reasons!
