Advanced fasting seminar

CHIEF–GET–TOGETHER, advanced fasting seminarfaste-frise-72-dpi


– a week of self-indulgence and personal development with the prospect of fun, joy, immersion and springboarding to liberating new insights – guided by 30 years of experience in the field of fasting.

2023: June 10th to June 16th 

“What the eyes are for the outer world, fasting is for the inner world.”  Mahatma Ghandi

“Fasting is the greatest remedy – the physician within.”                        Philippus Paracelsus, one of the three fathers of western medicine

During this seminar we will be getting up for mindfulness meditation every morning at 7 AM, going on hikes every day, we will be doing some ashtanga yoga sequences every day, experience lovely walks at the seaside and in the nearby hilly areas. The days will end with mindful walking, body scan meditations and foot baths.

Lectures during the fasing days will be advanced content building on what we shared during the beginners course – subjects like earthing, effective inflammation prevention, brain and intestinal health, the importance of rhythms, laughter, fresh air and clean water etc.

An intensive week-long course where:

• You slow down totally and completely unwind.
• You are revitalised and your energy levels are renewed.
• You are pampered daily with relaxation, yoga, meditation, massage and a footbath.
• You gain daily health-building knowledge about your body, nutrition and psychology.
• You discover the essence of who you are through tranquillity, self-insight, joy, fun and laughter.
• You expand your brain capacity, improve your health and increase your quality of life.
• You invest in yourself, your well-being, your self-worth, your integrity and your growth.
• You fast for five days on organic vegetable broth, organic herbal teas and freshly-pressed vegetable juices.
• You gain such physical and psychological reserves, self-insight and energy, that – in a most un-Danish way – it defies both “the law of Jante” (who- do-you-think-you-are? attitude) and at times perhaps even the law of gravity.
• You learn about stress management, unconquerable robustness, well-being and self-leadership from the world champions: the body and nature.

What participants say:

“I took part in the advanced fasting course in 2016, and it was a great experience. My need for tranquillity, movement, rest, good company and nutrition were definitely met. We went for hikes in beautiful natural areas,  I felt that I was on a beautiful summer holiday in the best company. Thank you so much for a revitalizing and life-affirming experience.”



”Both in body and mind, I am profoundly affected by tranquillity.
It enables me to hear and sense myself. A meeting that is much too rare in everyday life. It springs from within, during fasting and brief meditations. From without, stemming from my stay at the wonderful seaside and walks in beautiful landscapes. I’m not sure how it works, exactly. But I am sure that I’m going to come back for more!”

Tina Pipa


“Advanced Chief get-together, summer 2016.
This year I decided to go all the way and join Helen for a week of advanced fasting. Long daily wonderous walks in stunningly beautiful nature sites combined with the liver cleansing routine and deep conversations about all, that arose in us made this week an extraordinary special one.
It has carried me into a transformative period of my own life with ease and confidence where I find myself standing deeply grounded. Cleansed from former doubts and resistances towards revealing something deeper in me.
Helen is our ever so bright, loving, caring and facilitating tour guide into the realms of ourselves – and a huge thank you also for nurturing us by setting up the surroundings with joy, firewood, exquisite lemon water, warmth and grace.

I’ll be back!”
