We are very happy to be able to offer a sauna at this years' retreats. One may ask, is it really necessary to sauna in this climate? All one needs to do is walk up the hill and you can sweat all you want. Well, exercise is great, it is also included in our program and it may give some of the same benefits, but the sauna provides a unique cleansing therapy that has come to be expected in a cleansin...

We love the Spanish word for butterfly, “Mariposa“. We are also very fond of the friendly blue morpho butterfly who appears every sunny morning like clockwork, always flying from the southeast corner of the yard, right up to our porch then making a quick left turn around the house out into the valley. Sometime he returns with a friend, just long enough for me to run for the camera, but always too...

My favorite part of the 9-Day Mariposa Cleanse Retreat is gathering early with our guests to start our day with a little qigong. I have been sharing a short warm-up series I learned years ago that has stuck with me over the years. After that we practice standing meditation; standing and awakening in the awakening jungle.

We’ve learned a lot over the years by working with pe...

Because of that it has even been used as an emergency IV solution.

We love being able to serve lots of fresh coconut water at our retreats. Not only do we...

A green smoothie designed for the health of the human body.

Most of us do not consume enough greens. A molecule of chlorophyll closely resembles a molecule of human blood. According to teachings of Dr. Ann Wigmore, “consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion”.

Green Smoothies are easy to digest, since most of the cells in the fruits and greens have already been ruptured, and...

Did you know that bowel problems, in some form or another, trouble almost 70 million people in America? When your colon gets congested with stagnant waste, toxins get reabsorbed back into the system, polluting your inner environment. Called autointoxication, this may be a contributory factor to almost every disease. A build up of fecal matter along the colon walls poses a serious interruption in w...
