"Chris's retreat was my highlight of 2019. It was the perfect combination of beautiful nature, delicious and healthy food, connection, rest, fun, hikes, waterfalls, yoga and spiritual input. I loved it, thank you Chris and Kamilla" - Lisa
"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 that you were involved would be more than worth it! Your lighthearted nature and caring energy is inspiring beyond words. You do have a amazing way of making everyone comfortable and soothing any tension. I would recommend anyone wishing a transformative and deliciously fun adventure to sign up to one of your retreats!" Lori
“Chris is one of the most uplifting and inspiring people I have ever met. He has helped inspire me to turn my life around becoming an online entrepreneur who follows my passions and dreams and has much better digestion and energy levels. 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!" Audry
“I was hoping to get a sense of empowerment and confidence that I could maintain a healthy lifestyle after attending this retreat and it did all that and more. I would definitely recommend people to come to a future retreat and plan to come again myself and bring my wife next time!! I love that many aspects are optional so 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!" Matt
“I LOVE Costa Rica! I visited the Farm of Life with Chris earlier this year and underwent emotional, physical, and spiritual transformations. There is something about being in nature, especially in Costa Rica’s untouched jungle, that is incredibly heart opening, balancing and healing. The soothing nature sounds, the fresh clean air and pure spring water, the land, fresh tropical fruits, organic greenhouse, animals and the people, I could only describe this place as pure love.” Naturally Ashley
"I learned more about how to eat from Chris Kendall in 45 minutes than from my previous fifty one years on the planet! Piercing nutritional and lifestyle insights delivered with compassion and purpose. If you're thinking about hiring Chris for coaching, going on retreat, etc...stop thinking and DO IT!" Glenn Livingston, Ph.D.
"I approached the retreat as an opportunity to "have fun under the sun" while eating a healthy diet and meeting new people. The "fun under the sun" part was more than spectacular; everything we have done was more and more amazing each day!! 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!! :)" Elena
"For me the most amazing part was being surrounded by the people. 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 has so much to share with this world and I am so glad I was able to soak it all up for a week in the wonderful tropical sun!" Mike
