Are you new to fasting? Or, maybe you’re looking for an incredible, relaxing environment where you can build on your existing skills and join others with the same goals?

We continue to hear from our clients and community that they’re looking for an opportunity to fast with a group of like-minded folks and IDM staff. So, we’re pleased to be hosting another fasting retreat!

In mid-August, IDM will be hosting its second fasting retreat in Kailua Kona – a beautiful area on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawai’i.

Retreat guests will be guided through a four-day water fast in a spacious, private home, surrounded by the beauty of this incredible Pacific island. IDM Coach Terri Lance will be your guide – supporting and educating guests in this group fasting experience.

The retreat begins on Sunday, August 11 and concludes the following Sunday morning.

An amazing Hawai’ian retreat

With a focus on knowledge and self-care practices, the group will engage in a week of learning, relaxing and exploring aspects of the island, including:

  • All meals on eating days, prepared and served by a professional catering/personal chef service.

  • Coffee, tea, water and bone broth for assistance during both the fasting and non-fasting portions of the retreat.

  • All professional wellness offerings – such as massages and yoga sessions.

  • There will also be opportunities to see some of the natural wonder of the island – beaches, volcano viewing and agricultural tours.

  • All transportation between the airport and the retreat location, as well as for all retreat excursions on the island. (Please note that there is no need to have a rental car during the retreat.)

We believe an open mind and a willingness to participate is instrumental when it comes to achieving health and weight loss goals – and it’s our honour to share this time together, as you navigate a fast and focus on nurturing your mind and body!


The retreat is $4,000/person USD, plus the cost of the accommodations, based on availability. Room rates will range from $1,250 up to $3,000 USD, depending on whether guests are sharing a double room, have their own room, or are traveling with a travel companion. More information regarding accommodations will be discussed in your discovery call with Terri.

($1000 off Complete Cost of Retreat for Current IDM Coaching Clients)

If you’d like to find out more, please fill out the intake questionnaire. Terri Lance would be happy to discuss how the retreat might fit with your current health and goals!

We found in our first retreat that having a small group created a supportive and attentive environment. We also believe in hosting our fasting retreats in a private setting rather than a hotel, so we have limited space available.

In future, we’ll be developing programs to fit a wide array of needs and interests – so watch this space!

We hope to see you soon to experience this fasting retreat with us! Aloha!
