Visiting Us

Personal Healing

Many guests visit Farm of Life with specific healing goals. Whether struggling with chronic disease, weight, stress, depression, anxiety, GI problems, high blood pressure, cancer, fatigue, insomnia, quitting smoking, etc, guests benefit from Farm of Life’s healthy environment, nourishing foods, inspiration and guidance. Guests spend as much time as they need here to heal and transform, generally anywhere from 2-weeks to 2-months.

Farm of Life is the ideal environment for a journey to wellness. Healing involves rest, nourishing food, clean air, pure water, and a life-giving sun. We have maximized these healing properties. We’ve created beautiful spaces for relaxation and restoration. We are located away from tourist areas and roads. We enjoy the rhythmic flow and silent peace of nature. The air is fresh, clean and ionized. Our water comes directly from springs. Bathe in a spring-fed pool and eat organic, too. The farm’s harvest was planted with intention to bless and heal. Meals are prepared with love. The restorative properties of ocean and waterfalls can be accessed by car or hiking.

We have made an extra effort to make healing more affordable by offering discounts if you stay long-term. From May-October, we offer a 20% discount to guests who spend 30-or-more nights here and a 10% discount for 14-or-more nights.

Please visit our Farm of Life YouTube Channel to watch videos of our previous guests describing their journeys and experiences at Farm of Life.

Health Coaching

Health Coaching is our passion and inspiration for starting Farm of Life. Everyone deserves to be rightly informed about how to achieve health. We once experienced disease, chronic pain, fatigue and reclaimed our health through raw food and natural healing. As health coaches, we give back our knowledge, inspiration and appreciation to anyone struggling with disease and driven to reclaim wellness. We choose the name Farm of Life, because our intention is to help you get your life (and health) back.

We offer a one-time health coaching session for $60. During this session, we teach the principals and techniques of optimal health and how to integrate proper living conditions into a daily practice. We hear out your healing objectives and tailor a plan that meets your needs. Your plan may include a simple raw food diet, no overt fats, green juices, colonics, daily meditation, Yoga, exercise, forgiveness, healthy thoughts, affirmations, rest, sunbathing, barefoot walking and/or loving service. Thereafter, you are responsible for yourself and your choices. We are present everyday to model the healthy lifestyle practices and support you through the healing process. As your hosts, we have been where you are and are committed to helping you in every way we can.

Ultimately, you are in charge of your healing experience at Farm of Life. We encourage you to make it what you want it to be. While we keep an eye on you and your progress, we do not supervise whether you are keeping with your “plan” or not. We do not serve you your meals. Rather, we teach you how to use the juicer, vitamix, etc, share recipes, and you prepare your own nurturing foods. We do not have classes, a curriculum or a daily meal schedule. Rather, we answer questions and teach organically as we all go about living in this space together. We encourage you to read from our bookshelf and will recommend books based on what seems right for you.

Some guests are interested in water fasting or juice feasting. We are open to this, but will not agree to it automatically. We prefer to first meet our guests and assess their goals, health status and toxicity. We water fasts guests for 3 – 10 days, or juice feast for several weeks, or more for healthy and experienced fasters.

Health Philosophy

We all possess a life-force that sustains us in miraculous ways. When this energy is strong, we experience profound health. When it is depleted, we don’t. Restoration of energy brings us true and lasting health, and this is obtained through a total program of healthful living. A total program is more than just diet, but is a whole person approach that integrates all the healing elements that nature offers us. We have come to know and believe that our bodies are self-healing. When given rest and non-toxic conditions, inner life force energies nurture us back to health and vitality. This is the formula for health – it is the law of nature.
