Based on the latest fasting science,

we've designed a 100% plant-based seasonal menu

that will drive your body

into a state of self-repair and regeneration.

 

The Fasting Mimicking Diet has been scientifically proven

to slow down aging and boost immunity.

 

Fasting has never been so delicious!

Daily periods of contemplative and restorative silence

to awaken insight, clarity and inner peace.

 

Combining awareness-based meditation, nature walks and journaling prompts to unravel our mental and emotional conditioning.

 

"In an age of movement, nothing is more critical than stillness."

-Pico Iyer.

The Deep Dive Retreat was an absolute godsend. If you want to give yourself some love and renewed energy, go!

By following 5 days of the Fasting Mimicking Diet, the body enters a deep state of ketosis and regeneration. We offer the option to measure blood glucose and blood ketones during the retreat, to understand the physiological shift towards fat-based metabolism and cellular repair.

The graph below shows that our participants enter a therapeutic zone of ketosis, with an average Glucose-Ketone Index (GKI) below 3.
