Your upcoming journey with Mountains of Hope Health And Wellness Retreats is an opportunity for profound transformation, healing, and self-discovery. To make the most of your retreat experience, we invite you to embrace a commitment to best practices that can enhance your wellness journey.
1. Coffee Abstinence (2 Weeks Prior):
We kindly request that you abstain from drinking coffee or any caffeine-containing beverages for at least two weeks leading up to the retreat. This will allow your body to adjust to the retreat environment and the practices we will explore.
2. Sugar-Free Diet (1 Week Prior):
To facilitate a deeper connection with your inner self, we encourage you to follow a sugar-free diet for one week before the retreat. Reducing your sugar intake can help harmonize your energy levels and promote an enhanced sense of well-being.
3. Avoid Processed Foods (1 Week Prior):
We recommend avoiding processed foods for at least one week prior to your arrival. Opting for whole, natural foods will prepare your body for the transformative experience and support a healthier transition.
4. Dairy Abstinence (2 Weeks Prior, Goat Dairy Optional):
Ideally, we advise participants to abstain from dairy products for two weeks before the retreat. However, if this is not possible, consider consuming only goat-derived dairy as a more easily digestible alternative.
5. Additional Sugar Abstinence (1 Week Prior):
In addition to the initial sugar-free diet, please continue to avoid sugar-containing foods in the week leading up to the retreat. This will help maintain a balanced state of mind and body during your stay.
6. Cigarette and Alcohol Abstinence:
We request that you abstain from smoking cigarettes for at least one week prior to the retreat and from consuming alcoholic beverages for at least two weeks before your arrival. This will enable your body to detoxify and prepare for the retreat’s holistic experience.
By adhering to these best practices, you can better prepare yourself for the profound transformation that awaits you. Your commitment to these guidelines will help foster a harmonious and focused group dynamic during the retreat.
By committing to these best practices, you can arrive at our retreat already aligned with the principles of holistic well-being. You’ll be better equipped to embark on your healing journey and experience lasting transformation.
We encourage you to embrace these practices with an open heart and mind. Remember that small changes can lead to profound shifts. We are here to support you in your wellness quest and are excited to be a part of your transformative journey.
