Plant-Based Love Camp Retreat
September 7, 2017, Bend, Oregon
September 7th – September 11th
A long time in the making, we are thrilled to launch our Online Love Camp Program as a full Weekend Retreat! Last year, our Online 4-Week Plant-Based LOVE Camp Program was born with one mission in mind: to build community while giving you the tools to feed and heal yourself.
Now we want to connect our community through this Hands-On Retreat Experience – for our past love campers and future love campers to come and be fully immersed in the food, the fitness, and the lifestyle. Over the course of our 3 and 1/2 days together, we will teach you how to integrate holistic plant-based living into your daily life to help you achieve your ultimate self. By giving you a taste of the food, the fitness, and our lifestyle practices, we will give you tools so you can successfully go home and continue, with our help every step of the way.
When you start eating better, you automatically want to do more. More breathing, more of being present, more adventuring, more caring and more connecting. This Camp is an awesome blend of meditation, yoga, hiking, food preparation, sharing meals and stories and the opportunity to connect with a tribe of like-minded souls from all over the world. Get ready to have your mind expanded, your body challenged, and your heart and soul opened.
From Elaina – “This is my life’s work and this is the best way to reach a bigger community. It had to start online so we could reach more people and find our tribe.”
