WORKSHOPS AND RETREATS 2018-07-30T11:10:52+00:00



Over the last 13 years since recovering from terminal cancer myself, using diet and changing my lifestyle that included eating 80% raw food, exercise, meditation and a positive mind set, I have had the experience of successfully working with and supporting others on their journey with not only cancer, but other chronic health issues.

What is common with most people touched by cancer in particular, is that their experience has motivated them to make a healthy change with their dietary habits and lifestyle habits.

One way to jump start your journey to good health is to completely immerse yourself in educational programs that match scientific with practical, day to day applications.

Our mission as experienced nutritional and lifestyle educators is to open the doors of conscious awareness within you.  ‘First you must seek and then you will find’.

At our Life Transforming Raw Food and Meditation Retreat we address a range of health issues.  Our focus is on all cancers, cancer prevention,  preventing recurrence, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, weight loss/weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, gut issues, and general wellness.

Our week-end program is very comprehensive, with an emphasis on practical instruction and relaxation.  

During the weekend stay, our guests will attend educational lectures where scientific research regarding wellness and nutrition is presented in practical terms that apply to everyday life: raw food classes to further apply their education to real-life circumstances and participate in safe exercise programs that are particularly valuable to all guests to safely and confidently increase their body’s strength and capabilities.  Our focus on the mind/body connection explains the union of the two aspects of healing the body and the Soul.  Our healing meditations and visualisations empowers our guests with tools to relieve stress, increase the healing process and stimulate mental alertness for ongoing success.

Retreat, Renew, Reflect, Discover and Rejuvenate.

Relaxation and renewal will kick start your healthier lifestyle.

On behalf of the world and myself I want to express more gratitude to you and Wayne than I could have ever previously imagined.

By following the protocol in your book, your emails and the principles you showed us in the Health retreat, I have gone from immediately needing a radical prostectomy to cut out the cancer to having no sign of cancer in my body. By following the food and nutrition protocols I have not only eliminated the cancer but have also received numerous other health benefits. I am feeling the best I have felt for years. The arthritis has cleared up enormously and the upset stomach no longer occurs. I have made it through winter so far without any illness while people around me seem to be dropping like flies” Ross Edwards Victoria Australia

“I believe Kristine’s program should be compulsory for all beings on this planet.  This is how we all should be living if we are to raise ourselves to a higher level of conscious awareness.  It has a focus on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane and puts us back into the driver’s seat of our own quality of life. A must for all” Michele Jones-Wilkinson author “Live your best life”


“Awesome day today helping out and learning new raw food 🌿 creating skills with the true healing power of nature. We dived into new ways to embrace our inner power through various visualisations, activation meditations and following the natural states of nature, working with the rhythms and seasons of our bodies. We learned that making stress our friend and viewing our stress response as helpful creates courage and resilience. 
And the scrumptious wholefood!!! The most zesty and fluffy raw lime cashew cream cake, raw miso soup, raw parsnip sushi (drool) and raw chocolates. 

Thank you for having us Kristine and Wayne, an inspirational couple who definitely walk their talk…. 🍒🍋🍊 If anyone out there is having extreme health challenges I highly recommend embracing your inner power and natures true healing power…… 💚  Amy Joyous Marais – Young Living Oils
