5 Day Juice Retreat
HEALTHY EATING & LIFESTYLE PROGRAM
The H.E.A.L. U program
- Feeding your Body (earth)
- Feeding your Emotions (water)
- Feeding your Senses (air)
- Feeding your Passion (fire)
What’s it all about…
Over the 5 days you will be immersed in our Healthy Eating & Lifestyle program – H.E.A.L whilst living on nothing but freshly made, locally sourced cold pressed juices. We have brought together the ancient medicine wheel teachings of the 4 elements (Air, Fire, Earth and Water) into a modern day healthy lifestyle program.
It’s relaxed, fun, educational and transformational and best of all its totally unique to Australia.
Facilitated by Gary Dowse – “a modern day shaman” and hosted by Jason Miles – “the master of ceremonies.” You will come away from the retreat feeling empowered and support to walk your own healthy eating and lifestyle path.
Heal U, as the name implies, is all about YOU and gives you the opportunity to pause for a moment and hit the ‘reset button’.

Morning Nature Walks
To get you up and moving in the morning we have arranged guided walking trails to take you through the beautiful, secluded, nature rainforest.
Sacred Fire Ceremony
A sacred opening and closing fire ceremony that will help you create a powerful and sustainable intention.

A little bit about me…
I grew up in Adelaide and found my way to health and, more importantly healing, through martial arts. Where, in my late 20s, I had the very humbling experience of being ‘thrown about like a rag doll’ by a Master Instructor, who was in his 80s. Given my grandpa was much younger than this at the time and could barely walk, let alone compete with people a quarter of his age – I had to discover this secret!
I am passionate about natural healing therapies. I love the ancient healing arts and restorative healing powers you get from juicing and eating a whole food plant-based diet. I make juice daily, do regular juice fasting and cleansing programs and I am passionate about helping others learn the medicine of plant foods.
Things I’ve done…
- Completed the Cert IV in Chinese Medical Massage(Acupressure) in 2001
- Trained as an Energy Medicine practitioner and Health Coachwith The Four Winds Society in 2011
- Completed Basecamp with Don Tolman in 2013 (which literally changed my life)
- Facilitated Juice Fasting Retreats since 2015
- Completed Plant-based Professionalcertification at Rouxbe in 2017
- Earned a Whole Food Plant-based (WFPB) nutritioncertificate in 2017
- Became a certified Natural Juice Therapistin 2018 at the Juice Master Academy Online
- Currently the Master Juice Chef for Kuvings Australia

A little bit about me…
As an intuitive, sensitive being who grew up in an environment that constantly served lemons – I learnt how to make lemonade! Deep down, I knew there was more to life, so when an opportunity presented itself in 1993 to move to Melbourne (from Adelaide), I grabbed it with both hands!
Besides my gorgeous husband (and food), my passion is helping people ‘find their way’ to a lighter, brighter, greater and more magickal version of themselves. “A candle never loses its light when lighting another candle.”
Things I’ve done…
I wrote a book – it’s called A Foodie’s Guide to Juice Fasting to help people do a 7 day juice fast. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I know what it’s like to go without the very thing you love the most and so…I feel I have a lot to offer as most people don’t think they can go without food, let alone fast!
I give you an insiders perspective on what to expect and how to navigate it successfully. So, whether you want to overcome a sickness, feel more energetic, or improve your overall health and wellbeing, you’ll move closer to your goal with a little help from someone who has been there and done that. And, as one of your facilitators, I am testament to that!

A little bit about me…
I grew up in a low socio-economic family in the west of Sydney. Little was I to know that my early foundations would shape who and what I wanted to be in life, because I wasn’t a fan of what I had. Having experienced such contrast was a big help with my transition.
I love keeping fit, self-development, trekking the great outdoors, growing our own food on our 14 acre property, buildings things, and I am a great lover of words. I spent most of my life by the sea and more recently adopted a tree change to experience the contrast. So far so good😊
I followed the wellness path from my early 20’s after suffering a near-death experience, and I now value everything this amazing planet provides, and what our minds and thoughts are capable of.
I am passionate about holistic health. To me, health and wellbeing is much broader than just food. It is critical that our focus and our approach, the language we use, and how we think about ourselves is equally as important. I have spent endless hours researching and learning the benefits of food, fasting, and mindset and continue this practice daily.
Things I’ve done…
I studied health coaching at The Institute For Integrative Nutrition, New York (IIN), graduating with a Diploma in 2015. I have also had the privilege of coaching many people through different circumstances and events in their life with great outcomes. Some of these people just needed an accountability coach, while others needed a deeper level of knowledge.

She might be behind the scenes, but she is by no means a shy wallflower!
