We are pleased to announce Educational Programs to support Type 1 Diabetics!

The programs are designed to help educate, motivate, inspire and empower type 1 diabetics to lead a higher quality of life. We are not promoting a cure, nor is this a medical program, however we are providing the educational aspect to help reduce insulin levels, increase energy, lose weight, higher level of mental and emotional well being and deeper connection to your soul.

Type 1 diabetics are systematically told that there is “honeymoon” period, which the blood sugar is controlled with small amounts of insulin. However, this phase doesn’t last long. Our programs are designed to help transform to a lifestyle that may allow you to reduce the amount of insulin need to control your blood sugar. Dr. Cousens’ experience has shown that managing diabetes requires a holistic approach. This holistic approach requires the individual to look at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s life.

All of these pieces are integral to balanced and healthy lifestyle. You will directly experience ways to enhance and transform each one these aspects. We will provide practical use of each one these in the three programs. These programs can be taken all at once or you can take them individually.

What You Get in Our Program

  • Zero Point - Week 1

    The 4-Day Zero Point Intensive is led by Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D., Holistic Psychiatrist and Family Therapist. Zero Point is a process that helps undo patterns, addictions, and emotional blocks all the way to liberation. It teaches us how to dissolve thought form memories so that we can live mindfully without interference of memory patterns. This process empowers us to embrace our life without fear, hesitation, or any resistance.
  • Conscious Eating - Week 2

    In the second week, participants take an in-depth journey into nutrition. Conscious Eating, a five-day course (during a seven-day stay), teaches you how to practically integrate and prepare a healthy healing cuisine with low-glycemic foods that support the blossoming of wellness and helps to open up the path to self-realization. The first two hours of the day will be nutritional lectures with Dr. Cousens, which will discuss the benefits of low-glycemic foods. The rest of the day focus on food preparation demos and hands on experience with a Tree of Life Chef.
  • Expanding Culinary Joy - Week 3

    Expanding Culinary Joy is the second course of the Conscious Eating Instructional Series. It expands upon the basics of rainbow green live-food cuisine preparation with guided hands-on training. Here, the art of live-food preparation is fine-tuned in this fun and interactive course. Under the guidance of  expert Tree of Life instructors, your lessons will cover a wide spectrum of recipes from entrees, snacks, desserts, nut milks and more! You will be able to take the skills and knowledge home to support your transformation to a delicious and healthy lifestyle.
