Clean Eating - Yoga - Meditation - Mindset

Friday, December 9 to Wednesday, December 14

Rejuvenation awaits you!

We are hosting our first ever Food Matters Vanuatu Transformation Retreat, and you're invited! This long awaited retreat will be a chance for you to enhance your mental and physical well-being with 5 nights of clean eating, yoga, energetic healing and clearing sessions, breathwork, sound healing meditations, workshops, and more. 

Vanuatu is a beautiful, untouched island full of waterfalls, clear blue swimming holes, and abundant organic fruits and vegetables, and this is your opportunity to take time to come here and reconnect with your inner spirit. 

If the idea of transformative workshops, yoga, meditation, and clean eating with a group of like-minded people from various walks of life excites you, then you are going to love this time of rejuvenation, tranquility, and bliss. Whether you're seeking to heal deep seeded wounds, release and clear blocked energy, or simply desire to establish new habits of self-care and self- belief, you will walk away from this retreat full of life and vigor. 

Here is what you can expect:

  • Daily Yoga taught by renowned teacher Kat Finnerty. (All ability levels catered to.)
  • Clean Eating & Healthy Habits Workshop with me, Laurentine, on how to nourish and alkalize the body while creating healthy habits. 
  • Mindset Workshop with Kat Finnety on how to turn every disaster in your life into a healing and learning opportunity. 
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared by our private chefs, using Food Matters' principles of clean eating, using organic, gut-healing local foods. 
  • Daily nature walks to experience Forest Therapy, including waterfall walks and cleansing rituals. 
  • Sacred sound healing meditation ceremony where you will be able to experience physical and emotional healing on a quantum level. 
  • Fire ritual to burn off the old, and bring in the new.
  • Sun and sea therapy (including ocean swims).
  • Free time to explore the local town and markets. 
  • Free time to relax. (Maybe by the pool or snorkeling out the front of the retreat villa.)
  • A massage and energetic clearing session.
  • Optional: Equine Therapy for those who want to participate. 
  • And much more!

Let us help you do a digital detox, switch off, and bring you back into a deep state of rest and equilibrium. You deserve to be celebrated! To take time to invest in yourself, especially in the climate of our world today, which is riddled with fear and anxiety. If you're feeling called to this, know that it's for a specific reason. And you will have the chance to join hands with others who are feeling this call to come together and start the new year on a high vibration. 

We would love for you to join us in December for the transformation of a lifetime. Our team is bringing together the best of the best to facilitate momentum that will last far beyond this retreat as you learn what it means to be WILD and FREE. 

- In good health

Get to know your hosts:

Kat Finnerty

A woman who has been dogged by disasters of every conceivable kind throughout her life, but rather than giving in to depression and despair, she embarked upon a remarkable journey of transformation which transformed her life. At 24, Kat was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and told she would probably be in a wheelchair by the time she was 40. What followed was a 20 year battle to try to cure herself, and during this time, she discovered Buddhism, yoga, meditation, whole foods, and the power of the mind. She managed to turn both the disease and her life around. 

Now in complete remission, Kat teaches yoga and pilates and facilitates health & wellness retreats where she hopes to help break people out of their cycle of suffering. She lives on the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu and is currently writing two books: a self-help emergency manual for the soul called How to Transform Betrayal in 12 Hours and a memoir called, Never Let a Good Disaster go to Waste.

Everything Laurentine does and creates is for the greater good of humanity and the planet and with the ultimate intention to serve YOU.
