    Exciting treatments retreat extras.

    • Massage
    • Foot Detox Bath

    Detoxing through your feet can be an effective and easy way to help cleanse your body of toxins that build up over time.  Foot detoxification is considered by many to be one of the safest forms of detoxification. Ionic detox foot baths work by ionizing warm saltwater with alternating polarities.  You’ll enjoy the sense of well-being that comes from both soaking and cleansing your feet. While your feet bathe, toxins are released from your body. These toxins are often the result of unhealthy eating habits, mainly the consistent consumption of processed foods, pesticides, and damaged fats, and through toxins in the air and water.

    Praise for 2 Retreats from Riviera

    I first saw Cherie on a show called “Sid Roth’s it’s Supernatural”. I just happened to turn it on and usually don’t watch much TV. My health had been at an all-time low for months-physically, mentally, and emotionally. I’d been falling apart for a very long time. I went to The Dollar Tree and saw her book Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life which I now call my “Bible” for health. There was only one copy, and I’ve never seen another of her books there since! I knew I needed to try my best to get to the retreat, in Spokane at that time, and with the help of a scholarship, I made it! At the retreat where I was welcomed warmly, I learned SO much more than I could ever have imagined. The teaching from Cherie and John was absolutely life-changing. All questions were answered on the spot, and if Cherie didn’t know the answer, ( which was maybe once or twice, she found it out. I left with my protruding belly gone, and my belt went down by 3 notches!

    My second retreat in Carefree was just as good, if not better! Full of new info, insights, and new friends from all over the world. Cherie and John always send us home with EVERYTHING in writing! From the daily teachings to every recipe we taste, how to shop, eat out, prepare and freeze the juice if necessary, etc etc, a remarkable collection of all resources needed to start a new way of living for good.

    Cherie and John are the most caring, compassionate people I’ve ever met. Don’t wait for a change, do it now! You’ll never regret it!  —Riviera

    Praise for the August 2018 Retreat

    I had chronic back pain for over 9 years due to a severe back injury in 1998, which seemed to catapult the effects of 5 previous car accidents. It was comparable to a football player’s injury. Since 1998 I endured chronic back pain when standing which led to an addiction to Oxycontin and other addictive medications. I was a hairstylist specializing in precision long hair cutting and color with a background working with Paul Mitchell on stage, among many other professionals. I was also a very prolific make-up artist and salon owner. The chronic pain was never abated or healed and I’d have intense constant pain whenever I stood for more than 20 minutes. This pain never went away. Any daily chores or activities like standing at the sink and cooking resulted in pain daily. At the retreat, having the opportunity to help someone with their hair, I said yes. Again….pain. I prayed about it and had others pray for me as well. (Never give up!) A day later, I again worked on someone’s hair at the retreat. And…NO PAIN! I knew it wasn’t a coincidence. Since returning home, I’ve worked on some of my previous clients and….NO PAIN! I claim my healing from pain. My back is still messed up, but NO PAIN! So it’s all good to me! Thank you for the opportunity to attend this past retreat! God is working among us!  Riviera
    From The Ivory Coast – THE JUICE LADY’S RETREAT in SPOKANE, (20-25 SEPTEMBER 2015).

    “I spent 26 years working for the United Nations during which time I attended hundreds of trainings, seminars, and retreats. Not a single one can compare to what I experienced during these five short days at Spokane. Life-changing.”  Dr. Marcellin Hepie

    “During that cold winter of 2014 on the East Coast, my wife developed arthritis, with a frozen shoulder. As a result, she was recommended to see an orthopedic doctor for treatment and prescribed anti-inflammatory pills. But my wife refused this option and chose to go juicing. She ordered Cherie’s books and videos entitled “The Juice Lady’s Guide to Juicing for Health”. She acquired a juicer also and embarked on a juice fast program for 10 days. Only three days later, my wife started to “meltdown”; she began to feel better and could move her shoulders and dress once again effortlessly. She continued for six consecutive days. A week later, all the pain was gone, to our amazement. This was a miracle before my eyes, in my own house. She lost a total of 9 pounds in total and had no more pain; her face was shining, and her skin tone visibly enhanced. This miracle took place six months before the retreat at Spokane (20-25 September 2015); which my wife was delighted to join, in order to perfect her newly acquired science. I embarked on the trip to Spokane reluctantly, thinking that this was an exclusive ladies’ affair. How wrong I was. We have not been disappointed at all. This life-changing experience indeed was worth the while.  Dr. & Mrs. Albertine HEPIE

    2018 Retreat Blessing

    “Thank you so much to you and Father John for such an amazing week at the retreat. It was such a blessing to be there, I learned so much, met so many amazing people, and really enjoyed every bit of it. I lost 6 1/2 lbs. while there, and continued to lose when I came home, which is 11 lbs. total by the following week!  I also got full recovery of a frozen shoulder that I had for a long time.”

    Pam’s Health Improves!

    “Since coming home from the retreat I have had minimal pain in my knee and feet and none most of the time. I just got home from my doctor. He took me off of Statin and off of two pain pills because I don’t need them. My diabetic A1C test was below even the prediabetic range. Thanks to the influence of my friend Donna, I have been eating healthy for a year and have lost 69 lbs. To my surprise, I lost another 5 lbs. at the retreat. I feel so wonderful. I passed the Dementia and Alzheimer’s screening tests with flying colors. I am praising God and feeling the power of fresh and raw foods at work in my body. I used to be on 7 medications. I am now down to just two. My doctor says he is looking forward to me getting off of the other two. Thanks to you and Father John for sharing your knowledge with all of us at the retreat. What a blessing!” -Pam

    Alesia’s Healing!

    “I read your Juicing for Life book many years ago! I attended your Juice Health Retreat in May of 2015 in Spokane, WA. Your retreat changed my life! I left there feeling great! I lost 10 pounds detoxing. I haven’t stopped juicing since then! I juice daily and drink wheatgrass juice shots! I also eat a raw plant-based diet.

    When I came to the retreat, I had chronic multiple health problems. You were gracious enough to give me a scholarship so I could attend. Thank you so much for that. You and Father John changed my life immensely. I wanted to let you know I no longer have Fibromyalgia. Last year was the first fall and winter that I didn’t suffer from immense pain and chronic fatigue. Also for the first time in years, I lowered my liver enzymes and blood sugar to where I no longer need medication. I have healed my body through nutrition. With my passion for health and healing, I entered the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

    I will graduate on March 14th, 2017, and will be an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I’m hoping to attend another retreat someday! Thank you for all that you do! I will be forever grateful.” ~Alesia

    Cheryl’s Total Experience

    “The spiritual, emotional, and physical experience received at the retreat in Spokane was wonderful. The atmosphere and other attendees made this opportunity, along with the amazing teaching, one of the best retreats I have ever attended in my life. Yesterday, after only waiting two days I received my complete internal cleansing kit. I started today bringing my health one step closer to the complete healing needed to prepare me for the journey ahead. Thank you, both for your love, compassion, hope, and inspiration. Your ministry is appreciated and thousands of others around the world need to hear your message and experience the healing that God has promised to us all.” ~ Cheryl

    Martha Loved the Retreat

    “I would like to express my sincere thanks to you and Father John for all you taught us; the detox of the body, soul, and spirit. My skin feels smoother and my leg cramps in the mornings are gone. I also realized that the tearing I was experiencing in my eyes all the time has not been happening for some time. This is a ‘never to be forgotten’ and a ‘must-attend again retreat’. It was worth the effort and money to travel across the continent [from West Africa] to attend this wonderful wellness retreat. Please tell Fr. John I miss his loving and warm way of making everybody feel loved and capable.” ~ Martha

    Ann Marie’s Retreat Experience

    “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. 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 have 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. 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 anyone 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%. 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

    Tiffany Lost 8 Pounds, Gained 20 Friends

    “Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Cherie, Fr. John, and Catherine 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!” ~ Tiffany

    Eileen – A Life-Changing Experience

    “Thanks to you, Fr. John and Catherine 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 so 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

    Werner’s Reflections on the Spokane Retreat

    “When I arrived at the retreat center, I was welcomed warmly and felt right at home. The week of juice fasting posed no problem and time flew by too quickly. The interaction with the other participants was uplifting as were the different sessions where we learned about healthy foods and not so healthy foods as well as physical, emotional, and spiritual detoxification. The retreat took place at the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center, a large complex in serene surroundings with large, stately trees, and an abundance of wildlife wandering through the woods. Some deer came right up to the buildings. On Wednesday night we had a meaningful worship service.

    As I was the oldest of thirty participants, I was surprised how every so often someone tapped me on the shoulders in passing or gave me a friendly hug. As a group, we were almost knit together as one unit. At the sharing session on Thursday night, we sat in a circle and each was encouraged to tell what the week meant for each one. When it was my turn I told them the following: When we first came here, we were strangers. Now, we are strangers no longer, we are friends, brothers, and sisters. Then I told my story of how I was set free from bitterness and resentment. I had asked God to forgive me, and He did. However in some wakeful hours during the nights, the thought was impressed upon me that I have to go to the person against whom I harbored resentment and ask him to forgive me for these bitter thoughts toward him.

    This I did after some considerable time and the burden lifted and I was set free. After the session, quite a few came to me and expressed their gratitude to me for sharing this as it encouraged them to set things right with someone. We closed the session with holding hands, uplifting them, and sang the doxology “Praise God from Whom All blessings flow, Praise him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.” This was the most remarkable, blessed evening.” ~Werner

    Sue’s “Thank You” on the Spokane Retreat

    “Thanks again for a wonderful retreat. I lost 6 pounds and haven’t put it back on yet so YAY! I’m juicing at least once a day.” ~ Sue

    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 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 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 the 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 Catherine for caring so much about what you do and having the knowledge that helped all of us who were with you in July.” ~ Deidre

    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.~ Marianne

    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 are about 75% gone…which I now know is connected with the gallbladder. 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!” ~ Francine

    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.  The personal tips were wonderful. I have already begun to review my handouts for what I might have missed.” ~ Anne Marie

    Sonya’s Retreat Transformation
    “Thank you both so much for the opportunity to attend the Retreat in February.


    I was a scholarship recipient for the February Trinity Retreat this year. I attended hoping for a reset and healing from the death of my husband in 2018. I’m raising our two children now without him and it has been tough. I didn’t fully know what to expect even after reading about the retreat and watching talks Cherie has given over the years, but I admired her story and applied for the scholarship. Healing hurts and I thought if she says no to the scholarship I would have a way out. Interesting how these things work, though. Every effort I made not to go, resulted in the path to get there more clear. 
    I had to leave a day early to miss severe weather and the roads closed about an hour after I passed thru. I had almost a full day to enjoy the grounds before the other participants arrived. Later, I volunteered to help get things ready for the retreat and I really enjoyed doing that. It was a chance to get to know Cherie and Father John a little before the retreat began.
    Our retreat started Sunday evening with a delicious snack and beet juice. It was so delicious! I could already feel the healing effects on my body. Throughout the week I met some really incredible people. People brought together by God’s design. I truly believe we were all meant to be there for “such a time as this”!
    I experienced a transformation that week. It was my fourth fast within the calendar year, but fasting collectively, with a group of like-minded people really enhances the experience. The daily classes on a spiritual connection to God, healing the heart, forgiveness, nutrition, and the additional healing modalities offered to make this a genuine holistic healing retreat. I recommend it for everyone!”

    Karen’s Healing

    “Cherie I just want to thank you again for all the time and effort you put into organizing this amazing retreat! I felt so cleansed, healthy, well-rested, emotionally and spiritually whole, and physically healed! Scripture says “The day that we pray the tide of the battle turns.”I felt that battle turn for many of us, especially after the powerful oil anointing prayer service. I have spoken so highly of this retreat to all I have come in contact with, and will brag all about you at my Healing Strong meeting Tuesday: I am truly humbled and ever so grateful you granted me a scholarship to come. The retreat and time with you are the brightest stars in the dark sky of my cancer journey. Yes, I do believe morning is coming and I receive the word from you that I will experience the therapy healing you spoke about…little by little until I can proclaim a cancer-free report to all! Ps. 118:17 “I will not die but live! And proclaim what the Lord has done!” More than anything I want to be able to help others who are struggling and have lost hope concerning their health. Your testimony of God stepping in to perform the impossible is powerful. I believe I will be able to say the same. Doctors give me a zero percent chance of survival, but my God has shown up in impossible situations over and over again!”

    Blessings to you Cherie,Karen

    Judy’s Back Was Healed

    “Thank you so much for the scholarship to attend the healing retreat in Washington State. I learned a whole lot, met some great people, saw a part of the country I’d never seen before, and most important of all – received a number of healings from the Lord. My back [bulging disc] continues to be healed. I had no pain at all lugging a heavy suitcase across three airports last Saturday. I’ll keep you posted when I have further tests – as to what happened to the tumor on my kidney and the fibroid tumors in my womb. So far the doctor is estimating a 70% improvement in my back. One fibroid tumor is gone and the other is shrinking. And my kidney tumor is shrinking as well. The healing is still ongoing.” Judy

    Made a Big Difference In My Life

    “It seems like a long time since the juice retreat in New Mexico.  I am very well and would truly love to join you again sometime.  The knowledge and friends I found in that short stay have made a big difference in my life.”
