Karuna Detox Retreats does not aim to diagnose ‘illness’ or ‘cure’ and instead aims to provide information and experience for improving positive health and wellbeing.

In using this site I agree that I’m not participating in the practices advocated by Karuna Retreats or its facilitators & therapists on the grounds of any claims they have made to be able to ‘cure’ anyone of their physical maladies.
