*Ed, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

I arrived in a deep fog. I am leaving in Bright Sunlight. Oh, and by the way, I lost 15 lbs.
What can I say – You gave us it all, and I, personally, thank you from deep within.


*Stephen, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

I couldn’t imagine a better detox retreat.


*Kirsty, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

It covered Mind, Body & Soul!

Going home with so much more knowledge than I arrived with –
The support was very warm and friendly, always available if needed, but not intrusive – Perfect!

(This is my second time)… I rate the retreat 10/10! BIG thank you to the Karuna team!


*Rachel, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

My ‘Journey’ was definately a highlight. I feel stronger and more in control as a result. This is a wonderful compliment to the physical detox (a detox of the heart and soul) and long may Anna continue to bring peace and happiness to others in this way – remarkable.


*Tim, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

I am leaving with a better understanding of how to look after myself better, a determination to do so and feeling regenerated and energised.
Thank you to the whole team!


*Jemma, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

It was a great environment to do my first detox. Beautiful surroundings, friendly and inspirational team and a very warm and open atmosphere.


*Alan, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Nov. 2007

My personal highlights were the afternoon talks on the body and Nutrition with Sho. Her knowledge and presentation was beautiful, always professional and engaging.
I appreciated the laid back ambience throughout the retreat. There was no activity that was compulsory. Also, loved Sho allowing me to give her a kickboxing lesson when everyone else ‘wimped out’! Blessings and light,


*Juliette, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Oct. 2007

The Karuna team are full of welcoming kindness, uncomplicated trust, calm dedication and true unquestionable knowledge and experience.
With leaders like this how can we not develop our minds, bodies and souls?
I loved the talks, the walks, the trust, the companionship, the support and the journey therapy. The nutritional lessons and discoveries – how did we forget to listen to our bodies? I now realise I do not have to eat all the time to keep alert. There are so many aspects of this week that will shape my life for a long long time. Thank you!


*Jan, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Oct. 2007

I could not have imagines a week without food as it is not something I would be disciplines enough to do by myself. I found it liberating to have succeeded!


*Stewart, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Oct. 2007

I got an opening of my heart combine with a feeling of clarity & serenity within that I thought was lost to me. This experience has lead me to re-examine my habits with a strong desire for a healthier and more loving lifestyle. Brilliant! Non violent communication is something that I will introduce into my work environment not only to educate others, but to reduce stress in my life. Thanks!
Karuna Detox™ Retreats is a feeder of the heart & soul, simply wonderful.


*Brian, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Oct. 2007

My toe that always curled up and I thought it was arthritis has flattened out, the continous itch in my back for the past 10-15 years has gone, the mole on my stomach has shrivelled up and my joint aches are gone! All in one week, it is amazing!


*Karen, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Oct. 2007

I was looking to clean my system out, to feel more inspired, invigorated, energised, empowered and to achieve clarity of mind. I got all that and more! 100% value for money, 100% service. Excellence. It has all been perfect, absolutely first class... and I lost 8 lbs!


*Paul, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

I was looking to improve my general wellbeing and to lose some weight and yes, my wishes have come true! I am very impressed by Shoshana’s nutrition talks, an unexpected bonus which I found very helpful. The retreat is excellent, very peaceful and everyone on Karuna Detox™ team does a fantastic job.


*Chrissie, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

A complete mental, emotional, spiritual and physical cleanse. The mix of teaching, healing and support systems has been amazing. The nature walks kept me connected to the ‘real’ world of nature. Also beneficial were the gentle pool exercises and the sauna. I can’t believe I wasn’t hungry. I loved the ‘down to earthness’ of the staff, everything was made easy and unembarrasing. No feeling of judgment and no pushing to achieve. The non-violent communication and meditation morning workshop was brilliant: 15/10! …and I lost 7 lbs- hoorah!


*Elaine, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

From start to finish felt ‘at home’. Karuna Detox™ offered a brilliant service & support network right through every aspect of the retreat, blended together to give a real holistic approach to ‘changing your life’. Can’t thank everyone enought! I am going home with friends for life, memories I will cherish as well as knowledge and strength to start LIVING!


*Christine, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

One of the most special things on Karuna Detox™ retreats was the nutrition information on how my body deals with all the toxins and how to minimilise that and unexpectadly.. the emotional strength I feel and all the wonderful additional tools I will take with me to help maintan my new health.


*Joanna, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

It was a peaceful and supportive environment to cleanse my body and educate myself. As the week went the more mentally strong I felt. The Journey work was amazing! I benefitted greatly and feel I have been able to let go of some long standing issues & return a more positive person!


*Sarah K., Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Sep. 2007

Support by the Karuna Detox™ team was excellent, they were were friendly and kept us entertained and always available to provide reassurance, information and advice. Excellent! I lost weight and cleaned my insides and will reccomend this to everyone.


*Marie, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

Karuna Detox™ Retreat equipped me with the knowledge to DO SOMETHING with my fresh start rather than take my clean colon back into London and in ignorance muck it all up again. The nutrition lectures were the most important part of the day!


*Ann, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

It was wonderful to be away from family pressures and have time to wind down and cleanse in a safe suported environment. The yoga was fantastic and I enjoyed the daily country walk and the inspiring talks on raw food. All the therapies I had were great especially the chakra reading, which I found fascinating.


*Peris, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

The entire team is amazing! I don’t think I have come across anyone who is as well informed as Sho on her subject and knows how to bring it across in a easy and accessible language. I loved all the treatments and my clothes fit me better! It was fabulous, couldn’t be better!


*Sophie, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

It was a detox and a rest in a safe and peaceful setting. I was suprised and struggled with how sick I felt at a time, but since I came out of it have felt great. For me it was hard work, and worth it! I expect my journey will be a life changing experience.


*Glen, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

The special aspects where becoming aware of what specific foods did to my body. I was suprised as to how easy the colonic process became.


*Laura, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

I allowed myself out of my comfort zone and as a result made new friends and learnt so much. I really enjoyed the morning meditation and the yoga was excelent. All the staff made you feel really safe and offered amazing therapies that were great. I felt Sho really enjoyed sharing her incredible wealth of info. and I will take so much away with me. I lost 11 lbs!


*Charlotte, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, June 2007

I had never been on a fast or detox before and I found the Karuna Detox to be supportive and enlightening. The days were structured in a way that I was never bored and I was not hungry at all. I also managed to lose 15 lbs and it has inspired and taught me to lead a healthier life.


*Lucy, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

I found the educational talks on nutrition etc. brilliant. Easy to understand. I loved the way Sho was generous with all others knowledge to contribute to the group and the way she presented it with fun and interactiveness. Inspirational teacher! It was supurb- thank you! So rare to find a team that has these skills and are so heartfelt generous and sensitive.


*Jane, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

The fasting gave me a very clear, alert, calm and peaceful mind. It was just great being away from my everyday life for a week.


*Evie, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

Karuna Detox Retreats gave me a place to really relax, a place to take my body back to a ‘raw’, healthy position, evaluate my eating and educate myself on balanced nutrition and well-being.


*Paul, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

I came here to detox and remove as much mucoid plaque as possible to help regain my vitality and lose weight. Karuna provide the support and facilities to get the best possible results! Also, my massage therapies were truly wonderful experience, especially for the first timer. The support of the detox team was first class, always prepared to help, listen and talk.


*James, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

The retreat provided me with weight loss, a clearing of my system and better understanding of how I use my food and the effects that it has on my mind and body. I liked the friendliness and care that I felt from the staff and all my fellow detoxers. The retreat had much greater depth to it than I had imagined. I rate it 11 out of 10!


*Catherine, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, May 2007

As the days went by I learnt a lot about myself and how resilient I can be. I know my relationship with food will change from this day for the better, which is a fantastic feeling. Thank you!


*Pat, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, April 2007

I arrived with seriously aching joints. If I sat down for even a few minutes, getting up was very painful… The pains in the back of my legs have gone and knee joints are almost pain-free. I can’t believe it all happened so quickly and I am so grateful. I’ve had other improvements as well, but this is the big one!


*Kate, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, April 2007

I appreciate the inspiration, the tranquility and the amount of gunk I shall leave behind – emotional and well as material!


*Andy, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, April 2007

I was suprised at how my body just went through the detox process, both physically and emotionally. I’m so glad I did this.

Memorable moment? I will not forget the joy in the room for the first ‘soup’!


*Nina, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, April 2007

I have had the most fantastic week. I feel clean, clear headed, bright and bouncy & alive… I want to run through the fields! I really loved the group and I thought Sho was an amazing strong, inspiring uplifting woman & all the staff were great. I felt supported every step of the way. I loved the talks by Sho, she has so much information to share. Plus, I made some lovely new friends, which I wasn’t expecting. I can’t rave about it enough!


*Tony, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Feb 2007

Amazing feeling of well being, and a holistic change in the way I look at my health. I feel very, very changed and very, very alive.


*Wendy, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Feb 2007

Much of what I already knew about raw food was reaffirmed and a few gaps in my knowledge filled, leaving me feeling confident and motivated to take the next steps.

The personal development aspect of the retreat was a welcome surprise. With instruction in compassionate communication, and films on the power of mind over matter. I now feel really positive and empowered.

I now have the strength and some valuable tools to help me to move on in my life.


*Pamela, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Feb 2007

The whole retreat was an experience I’d recommend to anyone to anyone to desire to improve their health.

A wonderful team; Shoshana, Tim, Tamsin & Heather, have an abundance of knowledge and wisdom. They made the whole experience of fasting altogether bearable.


*Carol, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Feb 2007

I came for the opportunity to detox & lose weight with spiritual meaning.

The energy healing surfaced memories that I hadn’t thought of for many years and enabled me to feel in tune with myself, and positive about the future.

I most appreciated Shoshana’s support & the knowledge she shared both in the group and when I had a chakra reading. Her presence had a positive energy.

The surroundings were ideal for fasting and getting in tune with your spirituality.

The support was very good, and the team were always on hand to answer any questions – no matter how minor, and they genuinely showed interest in all of us.

They all had different skills and expertise which made for a very well-rounded and whole experience.


*Kiren, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Jan 2007

Karuna provided me with a safe space in which to fast and detox – a very caring environment provided by the leaders – especially Sho.

I lost 5lbs, which is half of what I need to loose – which is great.

Also a fantastic introduction in the world of raw food nutrition.


*Mandit, Juice Fasting Detox Retreat – Devon, Jan 2007

Most of all I experienced a level of kindness and warmth and sincerity that I had forgotten still existed in you – Sho and your team.

Superb!


*Anna (London), Water Fasting Detox – Dec 2006

It was my second retreat, and the first completely revitalised me, and informed many of the decisions I make about food. But I wa loosing my momentum and needed a health boost, and dose of fresh inspiration, and I got both.

As I’d hoped, I feel lighter,inspired, infinitely healthier, and generally more positive about life. And absolutely gagging for a hemp smoothie!

I embraced the experience provided by Karuna Detox while there, but it is now that I am home I realise the enormity of the experience. I am feeling more grounded and confident in the knowledge I have gain in both myself and my body. It allowed me to do what I set out to do, and this is more than I imagined!

If you need a detox and reset I don’t think you could find a more loving and supportive environment. Sho, Jo and the team work so hard to make it a safe place and the group were so special and kind. Colonics wasn’t for me but the juices were great! I’m amazed that I was not hungry during a 5 day fast. Lost 1.7kg - I know that’s not the purpose but a great side effect.I also loved the food demonstration on the last day and have already bought a dehydrator! Thanks again.

Sho, Jo and Bex held this retreat in such a safe, professional and deeply generous way that made it easy to make my first foray into detoxing. Everything was handled with care, sensitivity and thoughtful skill. All my fears were allayed about the processes involved - I was astounded that I didn't feel hungry throughout the detox. The final day was a such a triumph! I can highly recommend this retreat; Sho, Jo and Bex brought volumes of experience, knowledge and love. Thank you to a wonderful team!

Karuna is an incredible place that brings you on a journey to discover so much about your body and health.Set in such calm and beautiful Devonshire countryside with many walks available and lots of space within the retreat to cater for a multitude of desires.We’ve been on many ‘detox’ retreats and enjoyed them so much, however when reflecting on Karuna I can safely say what has been created here is for those that want more than just loosing weight.I would say that this is really stepping into giving your body love and attention from a very different perspective.The schedule, environment, nutrition talks, yoga and mediations were all so nourishing and a wonderful platform to reimagine health and routines going forward.Sincere appreciation to the fabulous team that made the magic happen this week, Sho, Jo, Becks and all of the fabulous therapists that hold the space, completing a loving team at Karuna.

Truly grateful.And so humble to have met so many beautiful and inspiring people as we cheered each other on! It felt safe and loving every step of the way

My first ever Detox experience, and it exceeded all my expectations. Although at first I was anxious about what the week would bring, I was instantly put at ease by Sho, Jo and her team. It’s not just a weight loss detox, (I lost a whole stone!) it’s much more than that. As cliched as it sounds, it really was a Journey of self reflection and understanding where I was in my life. The daily Yoga and Meditation sessions were great, as were the treatments in the week. Juices prepared daily by Bex tasted great, and the meal breaking the fast at the end of the week was delicious! It’s amazing how a group of people gathering on a wet Friday in January, can feel like best of friends in a matter of days, lots of compassion and support all round! A great start to the year!

What an amazing experience - the team were amazing and looked after us so well and the group participating were fantastic. I was quite apprehensive about coming but Sho and the team welcome you with such warmth and love that you soon realise that you’re going to be going on the most amazing journey - it’s much more than just about weight loss. The daily yoga I found a revelation and really set the day up. We did some lovely walks in the beautiful countryside and the days flowed past. Bex’s juices were amazing, refreshing and tasty!I’d highly recommend coming. I’d never done anything like this before and I felt like I learnt life changing skills!

Feeling very blessed as the people on the retreat were so lovely, friendly, caring and positive. Sho, Jo, Bex and all the therapists were so knowledgeable and amazing.I loved Sho”s yoga each morning, even when I was shaky, queasy and felt awful the yoga made me feel so much better🙏🏻 Jo”s meditation in the afternoon was so relaxing. I found it challenging this year as felt so rough, but persevered ! Feeling very proud and feeling so much better at the end of the retreat. Also lost 8 lbs which is a bonus. Thank you so much for a very much needed detox and retreat. I will be back❤️❤️

I booked a week juice/water fast to lose a few pounds and prove I could last a week without alcohol. What I actually experienced was a total body and mind workout and leave feeling full of optimism and energy. Sho and the team are just amazing and fellow guests soon become a close knit group and in some cases, lifetime friends. I would recommend Karuna Detox Retreat to anyone that wants some time out from day to day life and to press the body reset button. Accomodation at Newhouse Farm is also 5 Star and cannot fault in any way.

This was all I hoped for and more. I’ve met some amazing people and learned a lot from them all. This is such a beautiful place and a gentle and supportive environment. I feel I’ve reunited with my body and the Earth and am full of enthusiasm for embracing a much ‘cleaner’ and healthier lifestyle.

Karuna has changed my life!!!!!! For the past 3 years I have been trying to find a glimmer of hope to get back on my health routine and feel like myself again after having a baby and for some reason nothing worked, I wasn’t motivated to move my body and I couldn’t stay consistent with any lifestyle change. I left Karuna a brand new woman and since coming back home I haven’t looked back. I feel a complete energy shift in myself that I can not explain. I now look forward to fuelling my body with health and moving my body every day and it’s showing :-). I’m a happy human and mother. Thank you Sho, Jo, Hayley and Theresa.

I could say, ‘this is amazing’, ‘wonderful’, ‘life changing’, ‘best thing I’ve ever done’ and although true, doesn’t really give a true insight into the magic of Karuna.If I had one wish it would be that every human on this planet could experience this process at least once in their lifetime.We really all are sleeping through a growing epidemic of disease and self destruction on both a physical and psychological level.Sho and her powerful and loving team show us a way to navigate through the thorny labyrinths of the toxic prison we live in. A truly enriching and eye opening experience for which I will forever be grateful.Thank you 🙏Anne

From day 1 to breaking your fast you are going on the most incredible journey, Sho and her team are truly amazing, I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for your support guidance and most of all your hard work in making sure that we are always supported and loved with compassion and gratitude throughout our journey’s. Thank you all. I have made some beautiful friendships and met some awesome people! If your thinking of going and are scared to press that button to book, don’t make that first step to going on the most incredible adventure 🥰 🙏🏼🌸💕🌸😘

This was my first ever detox. I researched a lot of detox retreats before I booked Karunadetox. I certainly was not disappointed. Sho and her lovely team were very professional. I had the opportunity to do yoga and meditation every day. The detox was well supported by Sho and her team. Brilliant swimming pool which I used everyday. I meet some lovely like minded people like myself there. Sho has a wealth of knowledge. I found her talks very informative. I have come away with the tools to help me to live a more healthier life style. When our detox was over, we had a fantastic feast. The brilliant chef demonstrated how to make tasty plant based meals. My experience at Karunadetox was absolutely great. I would certainly book with them again!

I decided to come on a Karuna detox retreat because I was in a very bad place emotionally and it was starting to take its toll on my physical health too. I had no idea what to expect and was nervous about spending a week with a group of people that I had never met before.....I needn't have worried, this was one of the most life changing experiences I've ever had. From start to finish, Sho and the team were utterly fantastic, they were supportive, knowledgeable and passionate, I couldn't have asked for a more lovely group of people to help see me through the process.And what an inspirational bunch of fellow detoxes there were!! I will miss each and everyone of them…. we were the perfect team!! At times the detox was tough, but we all had each other, which made the world of difference. I have made some friends for life this week.I've come away feeling recharged, refreshed and with a renewed sense of joy for life.I will definitely be back again sometime in the future.Laura xx

This has been one of the best weeks of my life. Its a revolutionary way to relax unwind in a beautiful setting and at the same time give your mind body and soul a complete detox. The team here go above and beyond to provide an experience which is profoundly nourishing and nurturing. The care and attention to every single aspect of your time at Karuna feels lovingly and thoughtfully created. The talks about nutrition and wellbeing are informative and enlightening, the yoga is relaxing and grounding and the detox itself will impact you and your body in ways you could never imagine. The community spirit of my fellow detoxers was a huge part of the experience - by the end once the gourmet raw food feast begins there is so much love and compassion in the room for one another that that itself feels like the feast one of community, love and humanhood.During one of the gentle daily walks I went on with two new friends we lay in the sun and gazed at the clouds. It was absolutely magic.Thank you Karuna - I will be back! Xxx

As always Sho and the team are magnificent.The structure of the week means it does go quickly , much quicker than you imagine a week going by.I get a lot out of the talks even tho I’ve been four times, I love the handouts they give me reminders of things that I’ve maybe forgotten.Sho is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to health and nutrition., she’s also very much hands on as is Jo so if you’re struggling you can just reach out for that support.Jo held the whole group together and led beautifully, nourishing meditation daily, she is also just delicious as a person and so beautiful and caring .Kathy provides all of your juices , broths and finally food….. whoop whoopKathy has wealth of healthy eating knowledge and speaks so beautifully about all of the food you literally feel so relaxed when she’s speaking.The support here is wonderful, you just don’t feel like you’re doing this on your own…. Because you are not 🙌🏼❤️🌈Love Phoenix

Positively a life changing retreat..I was struggling to get pregnant and needed to take a break from it all and do something different for myself. This detox programme was exactly what I needed. It wasn’t easy as the toxins started leaving my body (day 2 and 3) but Sho and team were very supportive and helped me through. It was so worth it. By the end of the programme I was renewed mentally, emotionally and physically. I returned home feeling amazing. A couple of months later I found out that I was pregnant with my first baby!

Expect a rollercoaster journey of self love, supported by an incredible team and a diverse group of like minded people all bonded together in a common goal and you have a week with Karuna. Sho is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, the treatments on offer are all excellent and the nutrition provided by Kathy is exceptional. Jo’s warmth adds another layer of support. The venue works well. Our cottage was very clean, warm and well kept. My only advice is to take a mattress topper with you. The mattresses are brutally hard, especially for whilst detoxing.Thank you team Karuna for an incredible week, one I hope to repeat..

Life changing, A Gentle Breath of Air!Shoshana and the team are no word of a lie, miracle workers. Their informed guidance, support and help during fasting helps immensely. The morning yoga is amazing, Shoshana is wonderful teacher, and the meditation takes you to a different level in your head-space. The atmosphere which unfolds during your week, is nurturing, respectful and safe, you can participate as much or as little as you feel able to, confident knowing the team are there for you. The groups are supporting and I guarantee you will surprise yourself as we all did, how deep “the kindness of strangers” is and how you will bond and share. From the toughest of big men, to the young, the old, any size n shape. It’s a well needed breath of air, filling your lungs, body and mind with so much nourishment. An invigorating, eye-opening experience, you deserve and will be thankful for discovering and continue benefitting from, once you leave. Hole-heartedly life changing!Organisation: Brilliant ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Treatments: Awesome ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Accommodations and Location: Immaculate and Breathtaking ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Yoga: Phenomenal ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Meditation: inspiring ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Thank you Big G

People come here with a huge variety of questions, worries, wants and needs and somehow in the course of a week, with the help of Sho and one’s fellow travellers, some decisions are made, some foundations for future living are found, and you emerge with a sense of peace and energy and a new direction. For me the physical side of the experience was less profound than the emotional awakening, although no doubt the former enabled and sustained the latter. A great spirit of comraderie and support.

This is the best gift you could ever give to yourself.Life can be so demanding at times, this retreat is away of giving back to yourself and pressing the reset button, calming the mind and listening to your body and the best bit it continues when you get home.What a gift….!If it was in my power I would make everyone I know come and do this.Do not deny yourself this wonderful experience.It’s also a beautiful part of the world to spend some time in.

Completely wonderful in every way. The setting, the process and the guidance, support, knowledge and wisdom provided by Sho and her team are outstanding. This week has been an invaluable investment in myself, one I have no doubt will have a positive impact for years to come. I’m so glad I came. Thank you, Team Karuna! 🌟💖

Amazing retreat. 5/6 days fasting, with juices and supplements, (optional colonics), wonderful gentle yoga, group meditations, top notch treatments with lots of loving guidance and care from Shoshana who is a ball of bright powerful energy and full of knowledge, kindness and wisdom. The experience is a bit of a rollercoaster working through physical and emotional feelings - but well worth the journey. You can engage as much or as little with all the group activities but there is plenty of space to do your own thing. This is not a luxury retreat - the venue is nice with a pool and sauna, but could do with an update in some areas. All the team and staff are super friendly and helpful however, so not a big distraction. Can’t recommend highly enough. What a fantastic, healthy way to start the year! And it’s all in a beautiful Devon location x

Another amazing detox retreat with Karuna Detox. This was my 5th time and as ever, the whole team provided care, support and laughter throughout. Incredible treatments to aid the process, Sho is experienced and knowledgable and shares generously her wealth of wisdom on detoxing, colon care and importantly after care too. A regular feature in my year that delivers consistently high standards, attracts amazing people and leaves me feeling squeaky clean!!!! Thank you everyone. Tay

Any concerns about doing this de-tox quickly evaporated as it became clear that Sho has the wisdom, grace, kindness and expertise to guide us all through a fantastic experience. Putting health as a top priority led me to find this worldclass retreat and I would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you Sho for providing such a safe and, dare I say it, nourishing space. The whole week has been incredibly rich, in no small measure thanks to the beautiful venue and the surrounding magical Devon landscape. Highly recommended.

I am a GP, so have a conventional medical training. My first detox, a few years ago and elsewhere, gave me insight into the fact there is so much more than well known science, all who are willing to open their minds would gain value from a week away, not just to learn something new but to look after themselves.What Karuna gave me (as well as amazing weight loss) was a strong interest how important it is to look after our bodies through what we eat.Thanks Shoshana

I came away and shared such a special time with my sister on our retreat at Karuna. Sho runs the retreat, and is so warm, caring and full of fun she really creates a lovely nurturing positive atmosphere. As a Christian I did wonder if I would struggle with a potential spiritual vibe contrary to my own. But Sho’s attitude is “I am me and you can be you”, so I felt free to be me and slightly reinterpret some of her phrases to be at peace in my own heart before God. I found this a really relaxing time in a beautiful peaceful place. Sho shares so openly about her own journey in life and about the science behind food and the colon that you can not come away without learning something you want to take forward. The therapist giving us treatments were fantastic and also very gentle and kind, as a busy mum of 4 kids I feel I’ve been so spoilt and relaxed more than I have in a long time. One warning: fasting for 5 days is challenging at times, but I would have not missed this experience for the world.

What an experience. I am so grateful to have been able to have done this. I feel more than great. The Team are amazing, the facilities where faultless. What more to say than if you feel you want to detox, loose weight and be with an experienced facilitator, Go Go Go.

I think it was my 5th visit to Karuna, 2nd time in the Summer and it was glorious! Above all - the surroundings, the pristine accommodation, the yoga, the delightful walks, the meditations, the talks, making new friends - my blood pressure went down from 147/93 to 120/80 and I lost 9lbs, Result! Cannot recommend highly enough

The Karuna Detox Retreat was all that I had hoped for and more. Everything was perfect even down to the duration. It’s not easy for anyone to leave their comfort zone and try something new, but because of the attention to every detail, the personal support, the focus of care, the experience, knowledgeability, love and generosity of Shoshana the service giver, plus the quality accommodations and beautiful environment, this retreat was a very effective pleasure and a lot of fun. Highly recommended! “Cleaning the world one person at a time!”

This was my third detox at Karuna, it was an amazing experience, each time has been so different and so much learning takes place. The detox is so well supported emotional, physically and spiritually. Sho, Kathy and the therapist are so caring and insightful, it is a comfortable space to relax and discover more about yourself and your body. Thank you so much ❤️

After 2 days back from my Karuna retreat, I have reflected on what a life enhancing experience I have had. I gained so much more than I had anticipated, a lighter body, a clearer head and a wealth of information to improve my health and wellbeing. All this in just one week! What could be better than detoxing your body and mind within a supportive and compassionate environment? Thanks so much to Sho and the team. Everyone should do this.

Hi I’ve just had the most amazing week at Kuruna Detox and feel thoroughly cleansed inside and out! It’s not just about weight loss though as it has really shifted my mindset about what junk I have been putting into my body and how I only want to add goodness from now on! The holistic massage and shiatsu massage were just amazing and I loved my yoga sessions every morning! Kathy made the most incredible juices and on our last day when we get to break our fast she prepared the most mouthwatering raw food meals I have ever tasted. Sho has an ability to make such a difference in people’s lives with her passion on this retreat I cannot recommended it enough. Thankyou so much ❤️Kerry Sahi x

This has been an incredible experience. I didn’t expect to walk away with such a different feeling toward food. I feel like I’ve unraveled something really complex in myself which had me stuck in a rut but am now starting a journey toward a truly healthier life with healthy food that isn’t what I expected it be. (Raw food dishes - who knew they could be so delicious!)Thank you Sho - you are a wonder, and to your team for making this so special.I can’t wait to come back to check in on my progress and see what further improvements I can make to support a healthier body.X
