What does retreat mean to you?

Is Retreat a noun or a verb? Do you read the word as a physical place, or a frantic departure?

In the former case you'd be correct to see Retreat as a restorative destination, and in the latter, a process of saving yourself.

Sometimes flight is our only hope, and when that flight brings us to a group of welcoming souls, whose journeys have been proven to be helpful to those from nearly all walks of life, and all manner of stressors, you'd be right to see Retreat - Olive Retreat - as a reprieve in motion and arrival.

minimalistic. flexible. open.

What does healthy mean to you?

The first and most important part of the detox process is to define what health means to you.  All the healthy changes start there. Whether it’s the detoxing foodenvironmentsthoughts and exercises, it all starts by discovering and then minimizing what makes you unhealthy and finding substitutes to make you healthy. Then you match it with your preferred environment and complete the puzzle. Which pieces need to go, which ones can you keep? We help you in the process, boxes are open that you thought would be closed forever. We base our program on the latest scientific & evidence based data, clinical experience, and a lot of trial and error.

You'll learn how the body and mind work, or don’t work, in our hyperactive and toxic society, and how to read your body and mind signals. Ultimately, only you know what's right for you. We support you all the way, including when you return home with our “back home support.” In this way, we can help you better implement your new knowledge in the challenging environment you return to. 


I am so lucky to have found you at a time of my greatest need. You have a gift for making people feel welcome.

When you're ready to get healthy as you define healthy, 

we're here for you


We don't believe in accidents or mistakes, largely because if any one of our lives is either, that would mean all those who we touch and are touched by, and all those touched and touched by them, and on and on ad infinitum, would also be a mistake, and that's just too improbable to be true.

So, you've gotten this far in your search. Consider taking the next step and honoring us with your presence, with who you are now and who you are becoming, and open a door you'll never wish to go back on.
