    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.

    Thank you for a brilliant retreat that has done good and given inspiration for changes in diet and for regular intermittent fasting. The program was rich and organized with enthusiasm, care, knowledge and long experience from the team that led the retreat. Highly recommended for those considering detox and fasting. Doing this in a retreat contex with others made it much easier and safer.

    Amazing personal journey. It was hard and challenging but I felt so beautifully held with love and compassion by the Karuna team that made every step so worth it. I am leaving feeling worthy! Thanks so much to Sho, Jo, Becks and the amazing therapists that help soothe the body and soul while my inner wisdom was sweeping away the toxins! 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!

    An exceptional experience, in every aspect. The team and location are wonderful.The program enables each individual to get as much as they need, whilst being supported physically and emotionally throughout their personal journey.Yoga, mindfulness, meditation, educational talks, healing and traditional therapies are available and I highly recommend that you take advantage - as the quality is exceptional.I will be recommending to friends and family as the program really is transformational.

    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

    I have just got back from my 2nd detox at the Karuna Detox Retreat. My goodness what an experience, I feel like I’m on top of the world again. 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

I have had an amazing week.I have left a stone lighter and left behind a whole lot of negative feelings about myself whilst gaining self confidence and calmness for any challenges that come my way. Thank you again and hopefully see you next yearClaire

    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

    A wonderful experience. 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.

    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

    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.

    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!”

    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
