Detox Retreats in the Sun. Holistic Detox
Holistic Holidays announce their Holistic Detox tuned by the transformations of thousands of guests since 1999. Lynne Oliver and Stuart Forster incorporate powerful holistic techniques into their new holistic holiday courses.
A dictionary definition decrees holistic to be emphasizing the organic or functional relation between parts and the whole. Detox is short for detoxification and is concerned with the removal of toxic substances from the body. Lynne and Stuart address the constituent parts of a person; mind, body, emotion and spirit. In some of us the mind is overtaxed, the body is maltreated, the emotions are blocked and the spirit is left to look after itself. If any of these components is out of balance then a state of dis-ease prevails.
You don’t need a prescription for gentle safe stretching, proper use of breath, quietening of the mind and higher states of awareness, although Holistic Holidays have several regular Doctor clients.
Much More than a Change of Diet!
There is a generally held notion that a return to wellbeing is dependent on the need for a detox. The word detox is usually associated with a cleansing diet and while this is obviously is beneficial (with healthy eating options available), there is more to the overall process of detoxification. If we widen the scope of purification there is an even more important cause of personal contamination that applies limitations to our healing, well-being and general happiness in life. We are referring of course to the power of thought and in particular thought which lowers our emotional vibration and that causes a reduction in the self healing process.
Our holidays have evolved from a villa holiday retreat with therapies and activities to two specific and related holiday based courses, EcoLifeWalks and Journey into Yoga.
We now base our holidays at a lovely Oceanside spa hotel in Puerto Calero in Lanzarote, away from the main tourist resorts. While we recommend staying in the hotel, you are free to make your own accommodation arrangements. The resort of Puerto del Carmen is only a 10 minute drive away and offers a profusion of budget and other accommodation.
You can also attend Lynne’s Yoga classes at the hotel on a daily basis. download a flyer.
