This is the PERFECT sanctuary to get away from your everyday life in a setting where you can be your true self as you detox, retrain your brain, and connect to your Spirit. 

You will be forever changed in the company of beautiful seekers, all achieving peace and neutrality with food.

Quiet beaches, hiking trails, and unforgettable sailing vistas are all within easy reach. Each day will be a unique experience that combines self-care, inspiration, hands-on-learning, deep knowledge and time for independent reflection and relaxation. 

You will take advantage of everything the chalet and season has to offer. Daily visits with nature, time by the water, games for all to enjoy, nights by the fire under the stars.

I’ve tried EVERYTHING and nothing works for me. I've decided this will just be a lifelong struggle.

Sandra is here to tell you that you’ve been on the wrong treatment plan. Diets will keep a food addict stuck and sick.  You haven’t failed, you’ve just been on the wrong treatment plan. This retreat will show you the way out.

I don’t have another diet in me. I never want to count calories, points, or carbs ever again. 

You’ll never need to diet again once you have a shift in perception, seeing real food as food and seeing ultra-processed foods as chemically engineered, disease-causing, highly addictive food-like substances.  You’ll leave never want to ingest these food-like substances again!

I've never been able to lose weight and keep it off. 

We’ll give you a meal plan for recovery.  You’ll eat to stabilize your hormones and achieve appetite correction and extinguish cravings.  This will lead you to naturally and effortless loss weight.

I don’t know how to manage cravings and urges.

Sandra will show you a simple 3-step process that you can use in real time to feel safe and confident while facing a craving.  We promise cravings will dissipate and weaken.

I’m an emotional eater, how will I cope without using food for comfort?

If you want to know what drives you to abuse food… stop abusing food.  Your recovery can’t depend on emotional stability all the time (that’s just not life).  Sandra will bring awareness to how your thinking directly affects your emotions. Master your thinking – master your emotions.

I can’t do this, I never been able to succeed at weight loss.

Your greatest obstacle to weight loss is your mind.  Sandra will show you how to overcome your self-defeating thinking and tap into your Spirit. Your Spirit hungers for nothing, rages at no one, fears nothing, and is at perfect peace.  Living, selecting food and eating from this perfect place of love inside of you will give you the life of your dreams.

What if...

you returned home so inspired by a new perspective of yourself that you were able to reach all of your health goals, even causing people and life circumstances to respond more favorably towards you?

How would it feel...

to breathe joy, strength, and confidence into your life, allowing you to grow in new and exciting ways and without fear of food, no longer fighting food?

What would it mean to you...

to get your eating under control, lose weight without focusing on your weight?

What would your life be like if...

all the mind chatter around getting food, eating food, hiding food was all gone, freeing your mind to create the life you’ve always wanted?

But what if ... NOW is the time?
