The Longevity Retreat
April 28-May 1, 2022
If you're a conscious woman who is ready to take your health to the next level and interested in how to move beyond fear and past pain, then join Brie for PURIFY: a transformational cleanse for body, mind and spirit in Sedona, Arizona
April 28-May 1, 2022.
Imagine waking up with the crisp, Rocky Mountain air in your lungs, and the gentle sound of birds chirping outside your window of your mansion-cabin, your new home for the long weekend.
You gaze out to the mountains from your bed, surrounded by your plush comforter and smell the evergreens. You watch the aspens dance on the breeze.
You hop up from your bed and head down to the in-home gym, where you’ll begin your day with restorative yoga and meditation. Upon finishing your grounding class, it’s time to start the day with your first, fresh juice.
With each passing day, and each carefully-crafted, organic juice, your body feels lighter, cleaner, more pure. Throughout your cleanse, your body begins to heal, detox, purify. It’s been years since you’ve felt this good in your physical form.
After visits to the hot springs, the local salt spa, your relaxing massage, optional hydro-colon therapy, and a special hot air balloon ride to finish, you feel totally renewed. You now represent health from the inside out.
You are vital. Alive. Comfortable in your own skin. How deeply you needed this body reset after a long winter.
Ah, the transformative power of a juice cleanse!
So why should you join us?
Women are the heart of family and community. We are often the ones to buy and prepare food for a household. We are the educators who share and implement our new understandings of wellness with those we love.
If we lead with healthy choices, our loved ones benefit too.
The foods, amounts, and ways in which we eat have massive implications on our mental, emotional and physical health, not to mention the world as a whole.
How we nourish our bodies impacts us down to the cellular level, with global implications as well.
You were meant to be a leader in wellness for yourself, and for all those around you.
Come, reconnect with your temple and redefine your conscious relationship with food.
What is possible by the end of this journey?
By the end of our weekend together, you will be bubbling with inspiration because of your new relationship with your body. You will feel in control of your cravings, finally. You will eat with much more intention.
You will walk away with a community of supportive women who are also deeply committed to their own health so you may continue your inspired journey together.
After nourishing your body with organic juices, pampering and self-care for four days, you now feel ready to go home and share your newfound glow with others.
You feel refreshed and ready to lead those around you in healthy choices.
Nestled in Northwestern Colorado, at 6,700 feet, this charming Colorado mountain town is a quintessential Colorado favorite.
With an abundance of activity all through the year, Steamboat Springs is known for its hot springs, its hot air balloons rides, its gorgeous, mountain trails and its skiing.
With its Western flare, you'll just as likely see cowboy boots and hats, as you will mountain bikers and health enthusiasts.
The vibrant downtown boasts many restaurants, shops and spas for in-town entertainment. The Yampa River runs right through the heart of the town creating a calm and low-key vibe that you can't help but embrace during your stay.
Set with dramatic natural views in the backdrop, Over the Edge Chalet is the finest in mountain luxury.
With eight beautiful bedrooms, two spacious living areas, a year-round hot tub, fireplaces, game rooms and sweeping decks with striking views of the Flat Tops Mountains, this vacation home is a perfect combination of classic and contemporary.
Whether you’re hiking on the trails behind the mansion, doing morning yoga on the deck, or sipping a drink while soaking in the quiet from the hot tub, anything is possible at the Over the Edge Chalet.
The Juice Cleanse
We’ll share our final full meal together Thursday night provided in the chalet.
Then, starting Friday morning, post yoga, you’ll enjoy your first fresh green juice, followed by oils to ensure your body receives the proper fats during our cleanse.
Sweet, delicious oranges, juicy grapefruits, cleansing celery and pungent ginger, vital kale and hydrating cucumber, every elixir is hand-crafted by Joose, the local juicing hotspot, and delivered fresh each morning.
Throughout the day, you will receive a total of 3 juices and 1 smoothie, followed by proper MCT oils, and of course plenty of lemon and lime water throughout the day.
For those who desire, healthy snacks of nuts, and nut butters, avocados, raw veggies, quinoa or dates will be offered to supplement your juice fast.
Allergic to this or that? No problem, we can easily accommodate any food allergies or needs in our juice menu.
The Spiritual Purpose of a Cleanse
Throughout our lifetime, we eat constantly, rarely missing a meal. Our digestion, like all other systems in the body, needs occasional breaks in order to operate at its highest capacity.
There is not an animal or indigenous culture in the world who do not take periods of rest from food. We believe food to be the key to health and vitality, when really it is our own energy level that determines health. While food can certainly influence this, it is NOT the source of our energy.
Allowing our digestion a few days rest by drinking fruit and vegetable juices enables our body’s energy to be spent cleansing and strengthening other corporal systems, including healing any ailments.
Every bit of food we put into our mouth has an energetic vibration to it. And our culture is addicted to food, so much so that we regularly lose track of what we’re consuming. We eat just because food is readily available, never thinking to take a break.
To fast is not to deprave, rather, it is to hold fast, to hold strong. It is an exercise in self-discipline for the greater good of your entire body, mind and spirit.
Doing a juice cleanse allows you to take back spiritual control of your body as opposed to being run by unconscious patterns of eating and consumption.
Fasting is a discipline that the Western mind resists, but one the Western body desperately cries out for.

One last message from Brie...
Dear Incredible Woman,
I know it is hard to leave. And I understand the trepidation about doing a juice cleanse. Can I make it an entire 3 days? Why would I put myself through it? What's the point? I've experienced similar feelings myself. But the truth is, if we really want to be proactive with our health, we have to look at our habit patterns.
Sometimes, we feel ourselves obsessing over when our next meal is. We unconsciously snack when we are frustrated, anxious, angry, or depressed. Food has become more than just nourishment, it's an emotional attachment. It's what we use to placate our fears and nullify our unpleasant emotions.
Cultures that overeat suffer from the same fatal diseases: heart disease, Diabetes, cancers and high blood pressure, to name a few. Intermittent fasting is a way to proactively manage your health throughout a lifetime, and give your body the much needed break it deserves.
I promise, it may surprise you, but you won't go hungry. Not even a bit. We'll have plenty of delicious juices to choose from, (and snacks if you need) and we'll be busy pampering ourselves with spa treatments, beautiful mountain hikes, inspiring curriculum and more. You'll forget about your "need" to eat the same foods you thought you'd miss so desperately.
I hope you consider taking this time to give to yourself now. You won't regret it and your body will thank you. You absolutely deserve it. I'd be honored to celebrate your health and vitality together.
