A great alternative to “schoolies” for my daughter. Personally I needed the debrief after a big year. It really is a fresh start and perfect preparation for 2011

Marian, Australia

Thank you for a very special week. We are leaving feeling special and re energized and looking forward to venturing into the world of raw food when we get home. All the best for your future.

If you are looking for a non invasive, yet very effective cleanse retreat. Kumara Sakti is the place to do it! The retreat center is an absolute “jewel in the jungle”! Everywhere you look you are treated to lush greenery, flowers and peaceful fountains. My time at Kumara Sakti was a joyful journey within – a great way to detox with other like minded people who understand the value of a cleansing program. Mark Ament is a top match professional who made my retreat one of the most memorable I’ve ever done. His experience and wisdom gave me the encouragement and inspiration to do things & would normally not try his wife Gabrielle was wonderful too – I loved it all!

Susan, USA

Whilst sort of prepared for the herbal detox & radical change in diet, I was pleasantly surprised at the holistic approach to general well being and a nurturing environment in which to explore spiritual & esoteric ideas. Well out of the realm of your typical “Aussie bloke”. Not only do I feel much better physically & mentally, this retreat has helped me to break some addictions, which I could not at home. Thank you Mark, Gabrielle & the team for making me aware of a whole new approach possible for life.

In a word: Wow!! Life changing and LIVE LIFE Inspiring!
