Our New Retreat

Dear Friends,
We are happy to announce our new program, the Green Smoothie Retreat!

During the last three years we have conducted fifteen successful weeklong retreats all over the world. This year we didn't have any retreats; instead we have been working on new content for our retreats. Based on our experience, your feedback, and the latest scientific research, we have re-created our program and made it even better.

So far, we have made the arrangements for two locations:
• June 2nd to June 8th, 2013 in Sweden;
• August 2013 in British Columbia, Canada, dates to be confirmed soon.

As always we will serve you four times a day with freshly made delicious green smoothies prepared from the best organic ingredients. All of our smoothies are accompanied with detailed recipes. In the course of the week we will share with you all our secrets and tips on how to make the most nutritious and delicious green smoothies.

Since Victoria is working on a new book about the importance of activating the lymphatic system, we have added several fun exercise programs totaling at least five hours per day. In addition to yoga in the morning we will teach you during the day Nishi practice, visceral massage, breathing techniques, salsa dancing in the evening, and other activities.

Victoria's daily lectures will cover many different topics:
• Understanding Detox
• The Self-Healing Ability of the Body
• Lymph –Your River of Life
• History of Eating
• Strengthening Your Immunity
• Taking Care of Skin, Hair, Teeth and Eyes
• The Nutritional Value of Greens
• Women's Health
• Organic vs. Conventional Produce
• Raw Food on a Budget
• Parasites
• Colon Health
• Q & A
• And many others

Valya teaches a morning fitness program and stretch exercises. She also lectures on:
• Food Demo: Green Smoothies for Any Occasion
• Restoring Vision Naturally
• How to Pick Produce Properly
• Helping Children Become Healthy
• Healthy Diet for Your Pet
• Q & A

Sergei leads a variety of workshops:
• Wild Edible Walk
• The Nutritional Superiority of Greens
• Following Your Passions
• Travelling with Raw Foods
• Short Distance Hikes
• Q & A

In addition, we will have two special guests that will lead other fitness activities.
We have made arrangements with local organic markets and stores to purchase large quantities of 100% organic produce for our week. These products will be delivered on a daily basis, all the better for our health and enjoyment. We will be screening the latest and only the best documentaries in the evenings. Mundekulla Resort is located in a beautiful natural surrounding with swimming ponds, sauna and breathtaking hiking trails. Only 3 hours from Copenhagen airport with a direct train!

Cost: $1,395.00 per person. This price includes all workshops, meals, and educational materials. The price does not include accommodations.

Payments for the accommodations will be made directly to the resort upon your arrival to our event on June 2nd. All rooms are designed beautifully and are eco-friendly rooms with soft beds. Some rooms have a private shower and bathroom, some share communal showers and bathrooms. All rooms are insulated with ecological material such as wool, sawdust, linen, hemp, or recycled newspapers. You may choose from various options from double-occupancy rooms to sleeping on a mattress on the floor, prices ranging between $35 to $75 US dollars per night.

In order to hold a space for you we require a $200 non-refundable deposit at the time of reservation. The balance is due upon arrival.

August Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie For Auguest At this abundant time of the year it is hard to decide which ingredients to select for the daily smoothie. The following combination has showed up at our table more often than others, probably because of its simplicity, nutritional value, taste (not too sweet), and thick texture. Hawaiian papayas rarely get better than now. Stinging nettles are taking over the corner of our yard.

Blend together:
3 Hawaiian papayas, peeled and seeded;
2-3 handfuls stinging nettles, stems removed;
3-4 cups water.
Yields: 2 quarts
