Apply by 8 Aug! Spring half fasting detox retreat

In August, Soramame is offering a detox weekend retreat in the picturesque Lake Macquarie. The retreat combines the study of macrobiotics with easy, delicious detox cooking classes. 

Spring is the season of rejuvenation in nature. The human body also rejuvenates and thus it is the best time of year to detox. Though it is hard to imagine in this cold weather, spring is just around the corner, and detoxing now will prepare your body, helping to prevent the allergy symptoms associated with spring.

It can be hard to be motivated to detox alone, so why not join us in picturesque Lake Macquarie, for a relaxed weekend of cooking detox meals, Swedish massage and learning about macrobiotics.
