You will have email communication and guidance throughout the detox process. At the end of the workshop the group will meet again to share their experiences and make sense of the experience. In the end you will know more about your body and bodies in general, and will have shed some of the load your system has been carrying. You will be surprised at how far reaching the effects are. This may be the greatest ‘learning about your body’ experience of your life, everyone should take it.

You will be calmer, stronger, clearer, more productive and have a more positive outlook.
