My life is toxic - there is no other way to describe the long working hours, the daily commute, the need to eat "on the go" and the lack of time to relax and reflect. This is one reason why I chose to go to Karuna Detox for a third time. It is a way to completely remove yourself from... More

I went along to this retreat last minute because my Mother was going, having visited Karuna once before. To be honest I didn't think I was in desperate need of a detox but I had been drinking and eating badly at university so there was weight that I wanted to loose. The most amazing thing for me was discovering how... More

I have just finished my third detox with Karuna and it was the best one yet. Deeper, deeper, deeper....this time the deepest and most troublesome toxins were released. Within the comfort of Sho's familiar nest, I put my trust in the process and tapped into an enormous source of new energy. Donnas hands on food tutorials are heavenly. I am... More

I have known Sho for a few years now, and i heard so much about the detox retreat experiences, so although not eating (just drinking juices) for a week and having daily colonics, is not my ideal way to spend free time, I had to try and see for myself what makes other people to do that! In short, the... More

My second visit to Ham Farm ... and I have now put it on my calendar for a once a year rebalancing week. I came away feeling cleansed and rejuvenated. Everything is perfect and peaceful. The treatments are first class with Liza and Paul. Just felt zoned out for a week.

The Karuna detox retreat is a great environment to detox and release the crap that you have been carrying around for too long! On a physical level this means fasting and colonic irrigation; on an emotional level there is the opportunity to go deep inside and to release emotional patterns that no longer serve you. Meditation and Yoga, talks on... More

This was my 3rd retreat week with the Karuna team at Ham Farm. Yet again it was a totally wonderful energising and spiritually uplifting week. I arrived feeling distracted and frazzled and not quite sure why I had returned. But Sho and the team with their love, support, patience, skill and infinite wisdom ensured that as I relaxed into the... More

I have been attending the Detox retreats for 4 years now, and will continue indefinitely. It is such a well run retreat, really professional and supported by a superb team. I credit my continuing good health due to this retreat after a cancer illness. You take your health very seriously after the wake up call! The week is very well... More

Brilliant week, in a stunning location, for really getting away from everything and having a proper rest and relax, having 'me' time, learning about yourself on new levels and meeting some lovely new people. Its a deeply rewarding experience. The team who run the retreat are really caring, warm and help you with anything you want or need. I highly... More

I've been to Karuna a couple of times before, and am always struck, aside from how well run the detox week is, by the atmosphere of the place. To be doing colonics and fasting - often for the first time - it's important to feel safe and know there are people you can turn to if it all gets a... More
