Engine 2 is opening up 15 spots at a September week-long immersion to the public!
Rip Esselstyn invites you to join Engine 2 in Texas Hill Country this fall for a week-long intensive immersion retreat, scheduled for September 23rd-29th, 2012 at the Retreat at Balcones Springs (www.texasretreat.com). Featuring the all-star cast from our sold-out ‘Farms 2 Forks’ weekends, this 7-day/6-night life-changing week will give you an in-depth medical & nutritional education about why and how to adopt a plant-strong lifestyle. In addition, the curriculum delves far deeper into the psychological and practical methods and practices for successfully implementing sustainable lifestyle changes. The immersion includes multiple lectures and breakout sessions led by acclaimed physician Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., famed nutritionist Jeff Novick, and renowned psychologist Doug Lisle.
Each day begins with a selection of morning workouts, ranging from moderate group exercise (led by Lance Armstrong’s former personal trainer Nathan Turner) to relaxing yoga to hiking for all levels. After a beautiful hot plant-strong breakfast buffet, each morning will feature two to three thought-provoking and entertaining lectures from our esteemed speaker panel. After a bountiful plant-strong lunch, the afternoon will include two additional lectures, followed by 2-3 hours of free time. Participants can explore the bounty of outdoor activities at the Retreat at Balcones Springs resort, ranging from swimming, canoeing, or horseback riding to a 100-ft water slide and a zip line (and the famed Blob!). In addition, tennis, baseball, and basketball facilities are also available for group activities.
Each evening will feature a hands-on cooking demonstration, followed by a gourmet dinner, and a nighttime activity (including motivational speaker Dick Beardsley and a special screening of ‘Forks Over Knives’).
All participants will be offered two complimentary biometric screenings, and will have 24-hour access to the Immersion Medical Director. In addition, all participants will be able to schedule one-on-one consultations with any of our speakers, including Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., over the course of the week.
Comfortable accommodations are available on a double-occupancy basis, and the $3400 registration fee covers 18 meals (from dinner on the 23rd to lunch on the 29th), lodging, and all education materials. Ground transportation and air travel to Austin are not included in the registration fee.
