Welcome to The Game Changer Retreat, where we take our transformative Game Changer cleanse programme to the next level. Hosted with our dear friends Energy of the Day, this retreat is set against the breathtaking backdrop of central Portugal and has been designed to take you on a journey that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and empowered; revitalised in mind, body, and spirit.

At Alkalize Me, we are deeply passionate about the life-altering impact of the choices we make for our body and soul and firmly believe that our most empowering decisions revolve around the nourishment we provide for ourselves.

Both myself and Stephanie from Energy of the Day have independently experienced remarkable life transformations through the profound practice of juice cleansing. We now lead more fulfilling, happier lives and are both driven by the desire to share our extraordinary journeys with others.  It was that same shared desire that led us to collaborate a few years ago, developing The Game Changer Cleanse, a 13-day juice program that isn't just about cleansing the body; it's about nurturing the mind, spirit, and inner self and we are humbled to have borne witness to some truly remarkable and life-altering outcomes for our clients.

We invite you to join us in the picturesque setting of Cara Creek, Portugal, for The Game Changer Retreat. Where you will immerse yourself in the transformative power of cold-pressed juices and the nourishing essence of raw foods, whilst you explore the fascinating realm of energetic self-discovery.

Our mission is to guide you on a profound well-being journey, one that revitalises both your inner and outer self. As you embark on this path, you'll find the tranquil space you need for reconnection and embark on a healing voyage toward becoming the best version of yourself.

Think of it as a loving gift to your body and soul!

With love and light,

Garry and Stephanie


Savour the daily delight of fresh, organic, Alkalize Me cold-pressed juices and a raw food menu prepared on-site by Garry.

Each sip and bite will flood your cells with revitalising nutrients, a testament to the synergy between wholesome ingredients and your well-being. This culinary experience reflects Garry's extensive journey in optimisation, regeneration, and detoxification through raw, living foods and juices. Listen as Garry shares the secrets behind his profound health and life transformation, gaining unique perspectives on living well. Watch as Garry shows you how to make quick, delicious, and nourishing raw meal meals in under 20 minutes.


Imagine waking up to the stunning views of central Portugal, where rustic luxury meets the embrace of serene landscapes. Here, you'll find yourself in harmony with nature, savouring the pleasures of a simpler, more authentic way of life.

Immerse yourself in the rejuvenating experience of daily cold dips and unwind while lounging by the infinity pool, basking in the sun's warm embrace. As night falls, lose yourself in the mesmerising expanse of stars while soaking in the hot tub. During this 7-day retreat, you'll embark on a profound journey of self-discovery, reconnecting with your inner essence and charting a path to where you truly wish to be. It is an opportunity to rediscover your roots, embrace the beauty of nature, and revel in the authenticity of a simpler, more meaningful existence.


Throughout the retreat, you will have the opportunity to participate in various unique workshops and activities designed to empower you. From nutritional raw food workshops that educate and inspire to yoga, energy healing, and meditation sessions that center your mind, our retreat is your chance to gain practical and mindful tools for lasting wellness.


The Game Changer Retreat is more than just a retreat – it's a community of like-minded individuals coming together to support and uplift one another. Connect with fellow participants who share your passion for wellness, growth, and positive transformation. You will be among an intimate group of up to 12 people. This smaller group size ensures that each participant receives personalised attention, creating a more enriching and transformative experience for all.


We believe that food is a gateway to transformation. During your stay, we invite you to embrace the essence of "Raw Living: A Gateway to Your Higher Self" not only through life-changing workshops but also through the nourishing food we offer. Our culinary journey is a celebration of vitality, self-awareness and holistic well-being.

Awaken your senses with our Alkalize Me cold-pressed juices, crafted on-site daily to infuse your body with the purest, raw energy nature has to offer. These vibrant elixirs were what led both Garry and Stephanie on their different paths to change and, during your stay with us, these will serve to revitalise, cleanse, and nourish both your body and mind. You will learn from Garry what led him onto his path of rediscovery and more importantly, the secrets that have kept him on track to living a fulfilling life of gratitude.

In the heart of our retreat, you will discover the art of preparing organic raw meals that honour the connection between food and spirit. Delve into a space where you can explore your relationship with food, address any lingering food shame, and learn to embrace nourishment as a source of empowerment. We understand that trying something new, especially when it comes to cleansing your body, can be a step into the unknown. But rest assured, the menu will be carefully designed to, not only fuel your body but also to showcase the profound healing and vitality that plant-based nutrition can offer and we're here to guide you through a nourishing journey that's both gentle and transformational.

Whether you're a seasoned juicer or new to this experience, we invite you to explore this delicious world of plant-based healing, trusting in the wisdom of nature to support your journey towards greater vitality and lasting wellness.


Experience the essence of a typical day, where each step is a mindful journey towards rejuvenation.

As the sun rises, Ashley will start your day with serenity by immersing you in invigorating yoga, meditation, and breathwork sessions that harmonise body and mind. Then, embark on a culinary adventure with Garry’s raw food workshops, where you'll master the art of crafting quick and delightful organic meals. Your personalised growth continues with both one-on-one and group sessions with our dedicated hosts, Garry and Stephanie, who will guide you on your path to self-discovery. You will get to experience the transformative power of energy healing and bio-resonance tools that Stephanie has to offer.

Stephanie's expertise and deep understanding of energy work offer a unique opportunity to explore the balance of your inner self. Through her nurturing guidance, you'll tap into the profound connection between your energy and overall vitality.

During your retreat, Stephanie will share her knowledge and techniques, empowering you to harness the healing potential within. Discover the impact that aligning your energy can have on your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Stephanie's sessions are a gateway to unlocking your inner potential, fostering self-awareness, and igniting your personal journey towards lasting vitality and balance. Prepare to embark on a transformative adventure under her expert guidance.

And then, as each day gracefully unfolds, relish in the soothing vibrations of the majestic gong and other healing sounds, and come together in our sharing circle to connect and reflect. On select days, join the group for exhilarating excursions, with ample free time generously sprinkled throughout, allowing you to unwind and bask in the retreat's tranquil atmosphere at your own pace.
