"This was my first juice fast of any kind. I didn't know quite what to expect and was relieved when the Retreat Director gave me my binder with the daily schedules. As a whole this juice fast has exceeded all my expectations. My allergies are gone. I feel stronger and more centered, and I went from 130 lbs. to 125 lbs. I really feel ready to continue a more nutritional diet that will help me keep the energy and focus that I have gained here." M.B., Yuba City, CA

"This was my first juice fast and I enjoyed it. I never felt hungry. I enjoyed our discussions, the massage, the use of the Chi machine and other exercise equipment. Sayward is very knowledgable and gave us a lot of information and personal attention." N.W., San Francisco, CA

"This has been the most uplifting experience of my life. For 'Mind' I got a lot of new knowledge and some light therapy/suggestions from Sayward and some of the other ladies. For 'Body' it was the massages, learning about proper posture, the books available on Shiatsu and other practices I'd never even heard of like 'electromagnetism' and the feelings your body goes through during the fast. And for my 'Soul' - learning to talk to my body parts with love and thanks, learning that I allow other peoples attitudes and game-playing to chip away at my soul and that in the end it's about loving yourself more than others - that may sound selfish, but it's like how you love an animal or your best friend...just put self alongside them and watch it grow." G.G., North Bergen, N.J.

"Sayward, you are so great! I hope your retreats continue and you help other people as you did me. This was a great experience. I'm so happy about my thyroid, the weight I lost and kicking a few bad habits. You are such a great person - I could talk to you forever. Please keep in touch!" A.C., Los Angeles, CA

"I swear this was the kick start I needed to get back on the alkaline trail. Sayward was unfailingly upbeat and supportive of the process without applying ideological pressure." A.M., Santa Barbara, CA

"Absolutely, one of the best gifts I have given to myself for Mind, Body, Spirit. So much more than I could have hoped for. You will not receive such graciousness, attention, caring, concern from any other juice fasting retreat. Sayward is the Best!" L.G., Culver City, CA

"Most successful fast I've done. Sayward provides impeccable support and tailored to my needs. She knows what it's like to fast, so she's very in tune. I've been fasting about twice/year for 10 years and this was without a doubt my best one - everything was smooth and well done. Thanks so much!" D.A., Jemez Pueblo, NM
