Guided Online Fasting Experience. International Community. Come Back to your Centre.

Feel Alive Again. Conquer Food Craving. Enhance Your Life! 


Highly-driven millennials looking to “level-up” in their blindspots. You, perhaps?


A one-week transformational juice fasting retreat


From the comfort of your very own home


Read below!

If you want to experience a profound shift in your health, in your own surroundings, from the luxury of your home, then THE INITIATION is guaranteed to give you what you want. This may be the most important thing you ever do for yourself. 


Here's why: we can get all heady about food and health and diet and the body. But wait! Your experience exists in the body, not the mind! GIVE YOURSELF A TRUE EMBODIED EXPERIENCE OF HEALTH and stop clicking on that mindless clickbait of “Foods to Eat to Cut Bloating…” You’re worth more than that.


Our work is based around an intent to re-connect to "feeling good". Most people don't actually know what it is to feel good. They wake up in survival mode, reach out for some survival calories, grumble through work, have a few stimulant-based surges (coffee, food, TV), and then go to bed at night with limited nourishment at a deeper level. 


The status quo of the world WILL mislead you. That's why you must learn from yourself - from your own experience. Dive in and EXPLORE how HEALTHY FEELS, because let me tell you - it's UNDENIABLE


FYI - THE INITIATION is The Institute For Aliveness’ non-profit to uplevel humanity. Last year, 78% of our profit was donated to those in need on a journey of self-discovery. We offer scholarships and reinvest in projects in developing countries, employing people of color from diverse backgrounds.

Why Juice Fasting?



I know, I know, we can see your food addiction from a mile away! But in the end, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels. And the millennial generation has to get its act together, or cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and auto-immune diseases are right around the corner.


This is why we started "THE INITIATION." To teach Millenials the most important survival skill of all: self-healing and disease prevention. This retreat has proven to give participants the exact results you've been waiting for. We aim to redefine health not merely as absence of disease, but rather as “Living with Maximum Vitality.” 


When does it start?

We have one coming up soon. You could put it off for a rainy day. But hey, we know how you work, it would probably never get done. Seriously, all this takes is one simple commitment to yourself. It’s not a financial thing, because you’ll save money on food. So take a leap of faith in your body and get excited for the learning that’s just around the corner. There will be a team of fasting experts to support you, as well as a curated group of individuals from all over the world, going through the experience alongside you. Cool, huh?

What goes on?

During this 7-day juice cleanse, we're going to look at ourselves deeply, examine how we live, how we think and what patterns and social conditioning have been unconsciously running our lives. Fasting gives us the clarity required to undo that which doesn't fit with whom we hope to become and where we want to go in life. 


This is a program where everyone rises together. We, as a unit, expand awareness of what’s possible and what it means to be human. In practical terms - you’ll learn vital emotional intelligence skills and undergo a profound journey of self-reflection. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey, this space will provide you with the tools and mirror you need to elevate your life. Heck, even Oprah and Deepak would find great benefit. (Someone tell them we’ll give them a 2-for-1 deal!)


  • Join a Revolutionary preventative health program to boost your immunity

  • Use these 7 days to reflect on yourself and your life

  • Tune into online interactive lectures – only available to action-takers like you!

  • Live-stream Q&A sessions, so all your questions get answered!

More Fasting Mentors...



Laura empowers people to make lasting changes in their lives on many levels through creating heartfelt connections and providing practical support. In exploring the tools of fasting through her own experience, she has received many healing benefits, including peace and clarity of mind. 


Having recently worked at a detox center in Thailand, Laura has hands-on experience in supporting people through fasting. She has years of experience supporting people stopping smoking and empowering them to reflect on their addictive behaviours.


Now back in Europe, interaction face-to-face and online are platforms to educate people on how they can tap into maximum health. Through studying healing diets, naturopathy, and Hatha Yoga, she continues to delve deeper into how we can heal our own bodies, and live with a greater sense of vitality and joy in our daily life. 







Andréa and other special guests will support your success throughout your cleansing journey. There will also be our beloved "fasting mentors", people who have cleansed and healed with us several times before, like Greyson. They will be like older siblings, showing you the path! Then, of course, there will be people just like you - cleansing and joining the community for the very first time (they'll be nervous too!). 


Apply to be a mentor: cleanse with Andréa twice and introduce a friend to fasting to be eligible for a lead position. Please register your interest below to receive more information.


It's a fully online program. One Week. Cleanse with us during this period & tune in daily. YES, you CAN do it while you're working! You don't need to go on retreat. THE INITIATION has made cleansing wellness more possible in your everyday life! You’ll need about one hour total each day to do your self-assignment, post your video, watch the daily video and any others in the group. You can do all of this while you make juice! Then -optional- another hour of yoga/meditation practice, which you’ll find you naturally wake up early for! Though, for best results, we advise at least 2-3 hours of “you” time between 6 am-10 pm for optimal success. With that said, we’ve worked with Fortune 500 execs who were flying all over the world during the week, and even they THRIVED.

When? The Time is NOW!

Don’t worry - we’re not starting quite yet… But now is the time to jump off the ledge of the fear holding you back from what you will become. If you’ve read this far, you know there’s truth in these words.


There is no better time to come back to you. There will always be a reason to put it off. You've heard about fasting for so long. This is YOUR invitation to try. Take it. (You CAN do it, we promise.) Thousands have walked this path before you.


Have the courage to CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO ON HEALTH. What you've been told isn't working.


THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT YOUR POTENTIAL. Rethink everything you've been told about your health.


WE WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW POWERFUL YOU ARE... Believe in yourself again. Remember what a joy it is to be alive. 


And oooh! How lovable your body is!
