Reviving your Life: Exploring Raw and Live Cuisine
We have the ability to transform our lives with the thoughts we choose to feed our minds and the foods we choose to nurture our bodies. Imagine feeling full of energy, vitality, breath, and well-being. Imagine replacing old eating habits with better informed choices that are raw, super-nutritional, and empowering to your health.
Facilitated by the Gray Bear staff and guest instructors, Reviving Your Life: Exploring Raw & Live Cuisine teaches you how to work with living foods for the living body. Whether you are looking for new ways to heal or restore your body or preventative ways to keep your body whole, this retreat is an excellent opportunity to rejuvenate, discover new recipes, and gain practical information about the benefits of fresh, raw foods. Join us at Graybear in keeping it simple as we take a new approach to cooking it up in the kitchen. More about our full juice cleanse.

(*) Gray Bear is a two hour drive from the Nashville airport, so please plan arrival time/ departure time with this in mind.
This workshop is not for those with serious health conditions. Each person must be willing and able to participate in activities (Daily walks in a rolling hills environment, movement class, lectures). Even though a temporary benefit of this program may include weight loss, our focus is on wellness and whole health integration.
Gray Bear is home to 400 acres of rolling hills, thick forest, natural springs, and even a waterfall. You can experience the wonders of nature while sitting in a hand-built wood fire sauna; hear the silence of nature's symphony lying on a hammock while curled under a blanket; and revel in clear air and water while using shower outdoors.
With all of this nature we have some suggestions to consider when packing:
- Working flashlight ...it gets dark with only the light of the stars to guide you!
- A bathing suit ... good for the hot tub, sauna, and Watsu massage pool
- Water bottle ...Gray Bear does not use disposable cups. Purified water is available in the Main House and the Yoga Room
- A bath robe/sarong
- House slippers or socks to wear indoors ...no shoes inside please
- Comfortable walking shoes/sandals for an inspired nature hike
- Warm clothing ...mornings & evenings can be cool
- Comfortable clothes for exercising/yoga
Please do not bring any drugs, alcohol, or pets. Gray Bear is a non-smoking, pet-free and alcohol-free facility.
