“I am blessed to have had the opportunity to go to one of his retreats in Costa Rica where I experienced deep levels of inspiration and purpose. I highly recommend any chance to hang out with Chris as it is an absolutely awesome opportunity and healing experience!”
“I love that you can make it what you want and that everyone is super supportive and goes with the flow, the scenery is beyond gorgeous and the fruit is mouth watering!”
“I gained so much from the knowledge, experiences and ideas shared by each person on the retreat. There is such an amazing energy when you are surrounded by people who live their passions and live with love. To be around such people nourishes your soul and inspires your mind.”

“Chris you were as amazing as you are on your videos and how you write. I choose to come to this retreat because I could tell any retreat with you involved would be worth it! Your personality and caring and energy is inspiring beyond words. You do have a amazing way of making everyone comfortable and soothing any tension!”
“The motivational level after this retreat is so incredible!! Seeing “real” people live this way with such joy and ease, really confirmed to me that the low-fat-raw-vegan lifestyle is the lifestyle I want for myself!! :)”
There is something about being in nature, especially in Costa Rica’s untouched jungle, that is incredibly heart opening, balancing and healing. The sounds, the fresh clean air and spring water, the land, tropical fruits, organic greenhouse, animals and the people, I could only describe this place as pure love.”
