Gab Cousens 2013-224-559 resize

  • The Spiritual Fasting Program is a retreat that is unequaled in the world today. Join us in this amazing nine day fast at AsiaSpa’s Destination of the Year, Fivelements, Puri Ahimsa, Bali, a healing and wellness destination focusing on life transformation and love in action. Acclaimed by the New York Times as the “Fasting Guru” and internationally renowned holistic physician, Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D. and his wife Shanti GoldsCousens, MA lead this powerful program. 
    Fasting provides a rest for the physiology. Without the energy normally expended in the digestive process, fasting allows the body to use the vital life force energy for the revitalization of the whole physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual body. This facilitates elimination of toxins and helps to re-equilibrate and upgrade all systems. 

    On a deeper level, almost every spiritual tradition reveres fasting as a powerful gateway to the Divine. Intrinsic in this program is a framework that provides fertile ground for awakening to one’s deepest nature. Spiritual Fasting creates an opening for cleansing and healing on all levels.

    Spiritual Fasting Helps To:

    • Access one’s life purpose 
    • Heighten one’s sense of spiritual interconnectedness 
    • Activate Kundalini
    • Increase mental clarity 
    • Decrease inflammation 
    • Increase energy/vitality 
    • Bring physical, emotional, mental and spiritual homeostasis 
    • Support the shift into a Culture of Life and Liberation (helps one to move to a healthier lifestyle and plant-source only diet - if one chooses) 
    • Increase general level of health and well-being 
    • Move body to an optimal weight
