Revitalizing Body and Mind

Fasting is probably one of the oldest approaches to detox. It consists of abstaining from any food for a few days to allow your body to regenerate, and thus strengthen your physical and psychic condition. Coupled with mindfulness classes and away from daily routine and the hustle and bustle of our lives, it becomes a real personal and human adventure.

Fasting benefits are not to be proven anymore, here are a few :

  • Preventing disease

  • Supporting brain functions

  • Slowing down aging and revitalising the metabolism

  • Regulating hormones, blood sugar and blood pressure

  • Reduding chronic inflammations

  • Promoting weight loss

 

As to the mindfulness benefits, there are also better understood by science :

  • Reducing stress

  • Increasing awareness of  harmful patterns of thoughts and behaviors

  • Well-being, joy and gratitude

Typical Retreat Day

After waking-up, a refreshing light detox juice or herbal tea will await you.  You will then be monitored on some key metrics - weight, blood pressure, pulse - and after some mindful movements and exercises the group will eventually depart for an excursion during which you will "adopt the pace of nature" and pamper yourself at some spas. On the way back you can enjoy a range of treatments: massage, physiotherapy, osteopathy, naturopathic consultation or just take time for yourself reading, relaxing or trying some creative activities (painting, dancing). In the evening, it's time to meet around a bouillon followed by lectures on detox, nutrition and mindfulness. Everything is optional (and in case you think you can't take the challenge, yes there are plenty of hidden food reserves:)). Finally for those enjoying fine verses, some poetry reading shall elevate your experience to high spheres.

Looking back it was a very profound experience, challenging for body and mind, pushing a 'reset' button, breathing and surrender, calming and healing...thank you Rémy

Katrien

With Libellule I was able to cherish my "me" (for once) and take back the control of my body. Big thank you for this amazing retreat

François

It was my first fasting experience and I couldn’t have ever imagined that I can manage dayS without eating. And yes, I can, we all can. It was a wonderful experience. The venue, the team… Remy did a wonderful job

Timea

Le séjour jeûne et méditation en compagnie de Rémi a été pour moi une découverte et un moment unique.
