A view from WAY above
Through our Mind Detox Meditation program you will find healing in having grown into a more huge awareness of your place in the universe. Call it enlightenment if you want.
We combine creative meditation and informative dialogue to improve our wellness on both mental and physical levels. Meditation alone has been shown to alleviate or eliminate anxiety and depression, alleviate stress related disorders, help us answer questions and make decisions, bring peace and tranquility, clarity of mind, boost our immune systems, raise our energy levels - the list goes on. Combine meditation with a fresh look at ourselves in light of modern thought, and we have an experience that is not only physically and emotionally therapeutic, but can radically transform our world views, leading us closer to a view of the self we are more comfortable with.

The O·live Program and the food support the body to support the mind and the other way around again. You’ll find your level of health and do as much or as little exercise and/or yoga as your body would like. The health classes, meditation, beautiful nature, and time to find the place within yourself is free from the worry and stress of the world around you.
The O·live 8
The O·live 8 Mind Detox Dialogue is the inspiration for the Mind Detox program. It is based upon well established conclusions from the natural, physical and social sciences, and roughly correspond to ancient Buddhist teachings, on as many as 8 meditative stages, of Jhanas.
