detox and wellness programs and retreats

Elevate your state of being

Together, through the creative mediums of eating, fasting and detox, we will elevate the state of your physical, emotional, and energetic body.

Because once you have cleared out the stagnation and blockages, you open the way for greater vitality and joy to flow.

The retreats

Detox doesn't 'happen' on a retreat. It is an ongoing, inherent process sustaining life. You are a miraculous, detox machine, every day. On retreat, your myriad biological detox processes are encouraged, strengthened and optimised to function better,

Hello and welcome

On my 'About' page, I share my methodology and muse - and invite you into the medicine pot that fuels my work.

I am Emily Shaw

The success of the Light/ening protocol is attributed to its ten years of practice, the wisdom of Ayurvedic self-healing techniques, and an acknowledgement that physical, mental, emotional,and spiritual health are all interconnected aspects of wholeness.

Hundreds of people from around the world have experienced the benefits of this program, I hope you can too.

The Juicy Path is my new Substack, where I'm exploring SOMA—a compilation of the tools that sustain our vitality, openness, courage, softness, and juiciness - as I navigate midlife and beyond.

We picked a great time to be well

We are living in an incredibly exciting time for health and well-being.

The relatively new understanding of epigenetics, the human genome and the role of microbiota are scientific breakthroughs that have disrupted our previous understanding of the human body. This means we are no longer bound by our genetics, a big deal in our lifetime! Couple that with the incredible variety of new healing food products available, alongside extraordinary advancements in supplement formulations, and it's safe to say, that we are living in a truly great time to be well.
