ENJOY THREE DAYS TIME OUT AND A TOTAL RESET FOR YOUR BODY!
For those nervous about or new to fasting and for those who have fasted before and like fasting in community. Experienced in leading wellness and Fasting Retreats, Jason and Tracey are excited to be offering their first 'Soups & Smoothies' FASTING RETREAT - a gentle approach to fasting where we spend three days consuming delicious, nutritious soups and smoothies. Recognising that for some people, the idea of Juice Fasting is a little intimidating or a step to far to get their head around, this retreat allows someone to take a step towards fasting without stepping fully into a juice fast. Three days on just soups and smoothies is a wonderful rest for the digestion and also gives you an idea of what it would be like to do a three day juice fast, while being supported with a little extra sustenance. An opportunity to completely reset your digestion and transform your relationship with food through giving yourself a sustained break from solid food.

Co-led by:
Jason Shon Bennett - NZ's pre-eminent FASTMaster - has been regularly fasting for over 30 years.
Tracey Bennett - Passionate Plant-based, Wholefood Chef aka The Reckless Foodie.

In the words of our Fasting Retreat attendees…

I feel appreciation, rested, inspired, reset, back on track, connected, motivated, empowered, at peace with freedom around food and fasting. It was inspirational, peaceful, calming, really fabulous, authentic, brave and courageous. It was about community, knowledge, connection, pulling it all together with clarity, a joy of commitment and everything is now awesome!”
