Joy for Life Retreat

Joy for Life Retreat Dear Friends

Our Joy for Life retreat in Canada is only four weeks away. Since I started putting together these magical retreats, I have decided to limit my participation in large raw food events because I find that I prefer to communicate with a smaller group of people on a more intimate level. During the two previous Joy for Life retreats, all of us began to feel like family and each experienced profound healing. My lectures during these retreats give me an opportunity to share and discuss my newest research that hasn’t been published yet. All of us are looking forward to meeting you on the Canadian shores soon.

If you have any questions regarding the Joy for Life retreats, please call us at: (541) 552-0966

With Green Love,
Victoria Boutenko

Many people have been asking us about Byron Katie and her “Work”. I would like to share with you her letter to all people during tough economic times. It contains Katie’s own words of wisdom and samples of exercises that she calls “The Work”.
