This 5 day retreat is here to offer you the space, support and nourishment to step into a new level of health, a systemic upgrade of your physiology, immunity and energy to awaken a state of balance and vitality in your body and life that will stay with you forever. Immersed in the embrace of the elements of nature on our lush permaculture farm you will be allowing you nervous system and your cells to truly relax and regenerate.

**To book your spot or enquire please email your interest to events@masonjtaylor.com and we will arrange a call with you**

To help activate your health there will be many aspects to this retreat. We will focus on offering you an insight into the true world of health and nourishment, allowing you to experience the essence of food, movement, water, your body and the many other elements of the health realm while enjoying the wifi and mobile reception free-space (hello technology detox).

You will be eating and learning about the nature and essence of the food that we consume. Wild and nutrient dense foods and herbs from the land (your home for 5 days) will be harvested and prepared in a loving way that will leave you inspired about the creation of your food and your diet. A combination of juices, tonic elixirs and home cooked meals will be nourishing us for the retreat.

The entire retreat space is plumbed with wild spring water that emerges on the property. Your cells, kidneys and skin will be receiving a hydration and cleansing upgrade as you drink, shower and plunge in what is truly the best water ever.

We will be doing daily movement practice. Calling on yoga, martial arts and more, our intention is for you to become unified with you body and help you release tension. The practices will focus on helping you to gain a deeper perception of yourself physically and energetically that will give you a new lease on movement and how to ensure you are creating a structural integrity that will keep you strong and flexible many years into the future.

There will be some gentle, but deep, cleansing too. Each day we’ll knock up some concoctions to help mobilise and release anything causing blockages in your body. There’s an infrared sauna on site for you to utilise for cleansing and rejuvenation, and also some amazing practices from Ayurvedic and Taoist traditions that will bring a daily detox and cleansing practice to your life that I know you will love.

And then there’s tonic herbs. I’ll be bringing my love for these incredible tonics into the retreat and offering you a unique blend of the herbs for you to create a daily tonic that will work specifically for you to bring balance and enhancement to your unique bodily and energetic constitution. We’ll have some chats too where I’ll teach you how to use medicinal mushrooms, Chinese tonic herbs and Amazonian herbal teas to invigorate your health, immunity and cells to give you a potent and long lasting strategy for creating a foundation for health and longevity in your life.

On top of all this, there will be lots of time to simply be in the elements, contemplate, and relax. This is an important aspect to health that we will spend some time teaching you all about. We’ll be running some deep relaxations using sacred songs and jidaki (didgeridoo), as well as busting out the drums to dance it up around the fire! Because you can’t have health without music and dance.

All in all, it is going to be a transformational 5 days. You will develop a deep relationship with your body, with health and with the elements of nature that will never leave.
We can’t wait to go on the journey with you.

Testimonials from previous retreats

“Life changing, renewal, reinvention, transformational, game changer and the ultimate experience’ are all words I would associate with Mason Taylors retreats! I never knew what I was looking for until I had this once in a lifetime experience which has changed me forever. I have grown so much and learnt so many things that I now apply to my daily lifestyle because it feels good for the soul. If you want a journey that is boundless, out of this world and truly transformational this is the retreat that brings that to life. Having been to so many other retreats, for the first time this retreat was like coming home. I feel truly blessed to have had such an incredible ride with the most supportive people, environment and atmosphere. Eternal gratitude” – Lillian Adnan
“I learnt so much about the body and the organs and how powerful it is. I learnt to breathe right down to my abdomen. I learnt to feel every part of my body. I learnt that we put so much stuff into our body that we really don’t need. I learnt so much about me. I feel it has given me coping mechanisms for the future. Its given me a bright, clean, exciting future. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled across Mason, his crew, his beliefs and this incredible retreat. I haven’t stop talking about this since I got home. My friends and family cant believe it –ME – I did it. I rocked it. They now all want to do it.
My comment “just do it”. It will change your life. This was the BEST EVER.” – Marita Barron

Transformational Juice and Tonic Fasting Retreat with Mason Taylor

Deeply Cleanse and Nourish Your Body Mind and Spirit

Join Mason on an eight-day transformational juice fast that will evolve your health and vitality to a level that you never knew possible. We will provide an environment where you can relax and awaken the healing forces of your body in a setting that will offer you a deep connection with nature and the Earth, nourishing your cells and your soul.  

Why fast? 

In this crazy word that we live in, it is very easy for us to accumulate toxins, trapped emotions, parasites and stress within our body resulting in an overall lack of energy, illness, lack of motivation and degeneration. In order to experience the greatest health possible we must commit to giving our body the opportunity to release these negative forces that stop us from experiencing the best health ever. This is exactly what this transformational fast is designed to deliver to you. 

Fasting is an ancient healing and cleansing practice that is unmatched in its capacity to support your body in reaching its greatest absolute potential for health and abundance. Utilising the most potent ancient wisdom combined with modern healing insights and technology, this fasting retreat will be like nothing you have ever experienced. 

What results can I expect?

Over the eight days you may experience the following transformations in body, mind and spirit:

  • Removal of fungus, parasites, viruses and pathogens that hide deep within your tissue
  • Detoxification of heavy metals, radiation and other insidious toxins
  • Deep detoxification of the vital organs, including your skin
  • Rebuilding your immune system to its superhuman capacity
  • Restoring your energy and vitality
  • Reset your body and awaken your food and health instincts

What's included?

  • All juices, herbal tonics and meals prepared by Concious Chef Simon Favorito. All ingredients sources from local organic, biodynamic and seasonal farms.
  • Abdominal Chi Massage session to move stuck toxins and emotions from your organs as they detoxify
