    Sentinel Healing Vacation

    Revitalizing 7-Day Spring Cleanse & Detox 2019

    7-day Supported Liver & Gallbladder Flush and Detox

    What is OUR ultimate goal for YOUR health?

    A Sentinel Healing Vacation offers you a yearly maintenance program of a healthy digestive function by cultivating your inner physiological and spiritual potential.

    Cleansing diets, herbs, fasting and detoxification programs may seem like a modern health trend, but societies have used natural cleansing methods to detoxify the body for hundreds of years. Many religions encourage people to fast as a means of cleansing both the body and the mind for spiritual practices. In our present time, people are collectively in a social and environmental dilemma by being bombarded daily with exterior pressures of stress and chemical toxins. Toxins in food, air, water, and the environment, make cleansing the colon, liver and other organs more important now than ever.

    During this unique healing vacation at The Sentinel, we will support you in reaching a deeper connection to our soul by creating a quiet mind, going back to our sacred design, and accessing higher spiritual energies. This unique healing vacation is designed to replenish your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellsprings.

    What does your Sentinel’s Healing Vacation include?

    •  7 days supported cleansing & detox retreat at The Sentinel on the shores of Kootenay Lake
    • 7 days accommodation with private king room and ensuite bath

    • 24/7 support during your healing vacation and detox

    Through spiritually energized meditation, insightful lectures, movement therapy as well as daily customized treatments including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiki, Somatic Emotional Release, Massage Therapy, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Lymph Drainage, Bio Dynamics and Breath Work Therapy, 100% organic fresh raw juices and vegetable broth will support detoxifying the liver and gallbladder system to ultimately allow for innate healing and strengthening of your body, mind and spirit.

    Cleansing and detoxifying is an unusual state for the body where one may go deeper into the inner body and soul. In the state of dietary cleansing, one initiates an opportunity to clean from the inside out and make space available for new intentions, feelings or goals.
