The 10-day transformation unfolds in a logical succession of steps. During the first seven days, guests will be guided through the Amaveda detox protocol. Then, once the body is clear and the mind fully optimized, the second step takes place over the final three days. This is a series of high-level interactive workshops unpacking the BrandHuman methodology. The second step is supported by bio-available botanicals, nootropics and cellular-supportive foods and tonics.
THE AMAVEDA DETOX
The Amaveda detox is a multidimensional Ayurveda-inspired protocol that promotes body and mind optimization. The transformation happens by virtue of ancient Vedic detox practices, somatic movement, delicious bio-spa treatments, high-resonance aromatics and botanicals, a three-day liquid fast and a wild Pacific beach. Guests finish the detox process feeling light, reconnected to self, mentally clear and excited for positive change.
