Why Do We Call It "Joy for Life"

Joy For Life Retreat

The name of our retreat reflects the mutual intention of our team, Tom Compton and the Boutenko family. Our mission statement is –– to help each retreat participant to find their Joy in all possible ways for their Lifetime. To make this dream come true, we combine two greatest techniques that we know:

  • Green smoothie fast

  • The Work of Byron Katie

So far we have conducted 10 amazingly successful Joy for Life retreats. Each retreat brought Joy to our participants and deeply changed many people's lives in a positive way. Some of our guests returned to the retreat two and three times, many sent their relatives to participate in our retreats.

At the Joy for Life Retreat, our days are packed with activities. Green smoothies made from fresh organic produce, are served four times daily and documentaries from Victoria's personal collection are shown on a big screen every evening.
