Praise For the Juice & Raw Foods Cleanse Retreat
Anne Marie Loved the Retreat
“I LOVED THE RETREAT! I would come again in a heartbeat. Thank you all for the incredible amount of work you put into it. I truly felt blessed and special. One of my best mental images was from Dr. Nina….The smooth sailing ducks on the surface and the madly paddling feet below. The personal tips were wonderful. I have already begun to review my handouts for what I might have missed. I loved meeting all of you. Your caring for each of us truly touched my heart. The interaction of the class members and their caring for each other made this an exceptional part of my journey. I came away with much more information and ways to apply this to my life. It’s the application that is so important. It was a very intense week, but very well integrated with time for each modality, yet time for rest and absorption. The program was very well thought out and executed I liked having different instructors for the various topics. The depth was perfect as most of us had some kind of background in the areas. The setting was also perfect….places to be alone and with nature………places to be together.” ~ Ann Marie
Yvonne’s Long Term Health
“Cherie, your retreat was one of my most special memories of 2013. It was a huge turning point for me in my desire to keep going in the right direction with living a healthy lifestyle. I decided to wait a few months to review the retreat in Santa Fe so that I could comment on the long term benefits of doing a cleanse.
I have tried lots of different diets to be more health conscious, but this is the first time I have truly stuck with it. I feel great! I am thinking more clearly and have even slimmed down a little. Your wisdom and encouragement has been so beneficial to me and my family. We are juicing daily along with exercising more. We have spring cleaned the pantry and replaced all of the unhealthy ingredients on the recommended lists you shared. Our oldest son asked for a juicer for Christmas, and has bought one for a friend as a gift. We are starting our own little health revolution down here in South Florida. I also loved the way Father John talked about the spiritual side of our lives along with the wonderful insights from Dr Nina on taking good care of our physical health. Another thing worth mentioning is all of the wonderful people I met. We had so much fun together and truly bonded over the week! I left the retreat changed and inspired.
If any one is considering doing a health retreat as part of your plans for 2014, I would highly recommend them. Your spirit, soul and body will be changed for the better.” ~ Yvonne
A month after the retreat…
“It’s now been a month since I was on your Wellness Retreat, I didn’t want to comment as soon as I got back as I wasn’t sure if the benefits I experienced would be short lived and from the “high” of being there. Today, one month later, as I was walking through the mall, I noticed how energized I feel. My weight is down 10 pounds so far– 6 pounds were lost at the retreat..By the end of the retreat, my constant post nasal drip had cleared up 98 percent . Prior to the retreat, I was feeling constantly anxious and overwhelmed. Now, I feel a sense of calmness. Thanks Fr. John. My blood pressure, which was in the dangerously high zone, is now in the pre-high blood pressure zone and is still improving.. And, I am not craving carbs from wheat any longer.” ~ Eileen
“Thank you for an amazing week!
This retreat was a chance to renew, nourish and connect, body, mind and spirit. I learned how great our bodies can feel when we nourish them with “real” food. And how “delicious” that can be! I also learned how our bodies work, and the amazing things they are capable of if we help them function the way they are meant to. And I learned about connecting our minds to our hearts, the importance of this, and the part our attitudes and emotions play in our health. Each part is important, but if we want to live the lives we are truly capable of, no matter our circumstances, we need to do all three. And Cherie, Father John, and Dr. Nina Walsh, teach and demonstrate how to do this!
Tiffany lost 8 pounds, gained 20 friends
Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Cherie, Fr. John, and Dr. Nina for last week’s Trinity Wellness Retreat. I was first introduced to Cherie’s juicing through Dr. Mercola’s website and have been enjoying juicing for the past 18 months. When I read about the retreat, I knew it was exactly what I needed to take my juicing to the next level to provide a supportive environment for a week-long cleanse. The retreat exceeded my expectations off the chart! The classes I attended at the retreat were packed with juicing information and recipes, healthy lifestyle changes, and loving support. While weight loss was not my priority, I did return home 8 pounds lighter but far more important were the 20+ new friendships I gained! No matter if you are just starting out with juicing or have been embracing and enjoying it for years, you must treat yourself to this life changing experience!”
Eileen – A Life Changing Experience
“Thanks to you, Fr. John and Dr. Nina for an awesome ‘life changing’ Health & Wellness retreat. It was better than I could have imagined.”
Anne Got so Much More than She Expected
I went to Cherie’s retreat thinking I could learn about juicing and kick start my diet. I came away with so very much more. This retreat addresses your whole self– body and soul. Do yourself and your body a favor and go to this retreat. You will not regret it! ~ Anne

Linda Has a HAPPY HEART!
I just returned from my cardiologist’s office and went over the results of my blood tests taken two days ago. He was grinning ear to ear and said I was in his “Hall of Fame”! Before and after: Total Cholesterol 241, now l58; Triglycerides 89, now 78, HDL 55, now 48, LDL 160, now …94. (ratio, 3.2) Then he said, okay, now sit down and tell me, what in the world did you do? I’m not on statins, won’t take them, but wanted to see how much my lipids responded to a really good way to cleanse and then eat nourishing meals. After accomplishing the Trinity Wellness Retreat, we are all sooo on the right track to health and we should all be so proud of ourselves and talk about the retreat to our friends. Five years ago, I was so scared and today my heart is happy and calm. In fact, I’m smiling right now, Father John! [a reference to Fr. John's Happy Heart Class]. ~ Linda

Lanniece’s Life was Saved!
The Trinity Wellness Juice Retreat literally changed my life. As a physician, I am ashamed to say that I only received two hours of nutrition instruction in medical school. That was inadequate to help direct patients and became very inadequate as I tried to find answers for my own health concerns. Cherie’s passion for healing through healthy, whole, clean foods with Father John’s passion for healing the mind and spirit and Dr. Nina Walsh’s passion for nutritional education is synergistically combined into an extremely powerful retreat experience that I wish everyone could experience. The backdrop of the monastery makes it the perfect place to learn, be inspired, tackle difficult issues and to inspire. I was given the tools and education needed to live a better life through wiser food choices for my family and myself. I have also learned to be less judgmental and to live more from my heart through Father John’s practical application of the Gospel. And as a bonus, I lost eight pounds while on the retreat and have lost a total of fifteen pounds in the two weeks following. I am so grateful for this experience and encourage anyone who knows something is missing from the daily grind of living in our fast paced society to treat your mind,body and soul to the Trinity Wellness Juice Retreat.
Sincerely, Lanniece F.Hall, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Deidre Lost 14 Pounds and De-Stressed
“I was so stressed in my personal and work life that I always felt terrible and was constantly trying to find something that would help me feel better, but nothing ever worked. Luckily I read the Juice Lady’s July newsletter and what I’d been dealing with was a topic in that newsletter. I read about the Trinity Wellness Juice Retreat and thought it might help me figure out how to deal with my stresses and how to make my myself feel better. Attending the retreat this July did that. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had. It has changed how I deal with my life. I now know how to nourish my body in many ways, and am able to use techniques I learned to help make my heart happier. My body, mind, and spirit are becoming more in harmony with each other. I am happy. Now I feel more complete than I ever have before. The day after I got back home, I got on the scale and was shocked by what I had done. I lost 14 pounds. Wow! I always had energy at the retreat, and only felt a little hunger once (before breakfast Friday morning) so nourishing my body was just what I needed. Thank you so much Cherie, Fr. John, and Dr. Nina for caring so much about what you do and having the knowledge that helped all of us who were with you in July.”
Marianne Lost 7 Pounds
“I had such a great time at the retreat. Everyone was so nice and pleasant. I think we learned so much to take on this journey of ours. I am hoping to implement as much as possible in my daily life. I was so happy to find out I lost 7 pounds. I am hoping to continue on this path. I am so grateful I was able to come last week and meet all those wonderful people. Thanks for all your hard work and preparation.“
Donna is Experiencing Vibrant Health!
“Since the retreat, I am experiencing more energy, feel cleaner, and have experienced clearer thinking. In a nutshell–I’m experiencing vibrant health! I had a sharp pain in my back around the kidney area that is gone now. I think my kidneys may have cleared something during the retreat. And though it wasn’t my goal, I lost 6 pounds.”
Francine’s Shoulder Pain is Almost Gone
“I have to tell you all the aches and pains I was having have drastically minimized since the retreat, and the extremely painful right arm and shoulder is about 75% gone…which I now know is connected with the gall bladder. I felt my “vim and vigor” coming back by the time I left, too! It was an incredible experience. . .a lot I knew, but a lot was new to me as well, and well worth every second! I wouldn’t trade anything for last week…so thank you, thank you, thank you for doing the retreats and for inviting me. It was exactly what I needed!”

The Setting – Glorieta Conference Center, Glorieta, New Mexico
Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, with the great peaks of the Sangre de Christo as a backdrop, rising over 12,000 feet, the beautiful setting, grounds, and retreat center facilitate healing and renewal of mind, body, and spirit. The town of Glorieta had its beginning a few years after the Civil War. During March of 1862 as the Confederates attempted to occupy New Mexico, a decisive engagement between Confederate and Union troops took place at a site named Pigeon’s Ranch near La Glorieta Pass. The battle ended with a Union victory and put an end to the Confederate challenge to New Mexico. In 1879, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad came over La Glorieta Pass and a small village began to grow a few miles west of Pigeon’s Ranch that was to become the town of Glorieta. Shortly after World War II the Southern Baptist Assembly chose Glorieta as headquarters for their western leadership center. Today the town has a rich history, beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife and mild climate.
