We will support our intention to heal and recreate our lives in Love through the power of prayer, daily meditations and affirmations, informational emails and specific meditations for clearing & healing the abandonment and rejection stored in our 2nd chakra.
 
Additionally, various Private Practitioners (Massage, Reiki, Colon Hygienist and Private Meditation) will be available to support your Cleanse process by helping you to release feelings of Abandonment, Rejection, Isolation and Fragmentation from your body at a deeper level. ($85 Additional Fee)
 
We will culminate our Cleanse with a Follow-Up Feast at Spa Castle in College Point, Queens where we can steam, scrub and sauna the last remnants of toxins from our body and then share our personal experiences of the Cleanse over a delicious meal! (Included in the fee.)
