"My sister and I come at least every other year to attend the Revitalizing Cleanse with Alison Gaines. And it is ALWAYS a wonderful experience!!
Alison does a great job in creating a sacred/safe space and is does it with such impeccability and integrity each time. Kriplau is EXTREMELY fortunate to have someone with Alison's experience and wisdom to offer this program. We only wish it were offered more often - so we could attend more frequently! We have recommended this program to many friends and they feel the same!" B. R. ♥
"I took Alison's Sacred Nourishment retreat in 2010. It was transformative for me: I became awake to my potential to be stronger and also to be a good friend. I still enjoy relationships I made at that retreat. I also am still practicing the kind, considerate way of eating I learned there." S. S.
