Dear Reader,

I’m excited to announce my 4th annual United States retreat this summer, August 5, 2018 – August 10, 2018 in New York. Hundreds of Gabriel Method fans from around the world joined me for an incredible experience last summer. I can’t wait to go back!

This Total Transformation Retreat is the longest and most in-depth retreat I’ve ever offered. It’s a 5 day/5 night immersion into The Gabriel Method at the beautiful Omega Institute, about 2 1/2 hours from New York City.

If you’ve never been to Omega before, you’re going to love it. It’s a health and wellness oasis with great food, amazing facilities, daily yoga classes, healthy evening entertainment and so much more.

During the retreat, we’ll cover every aspect of The Gabriel Method from A to Z, and most importantly, we’ll focus on the practical application of these life-changing principles.

Together with a Group of Like-Minded Participants, You’ll Learn:

  • How to reduce stress & relieve emotional trauma
  • How to nourish your body nutritionally & never starve yourself again
  • How to exercise less & get more results
  • Why you need to focus on your hormones, not calories, for long-term success
  • Why mind-body practices can often lead to the biggest changes of all
  • What to eat for breakfast, how to give up sugar, how to find healthy snacks, & how to eat well at just about any type of restaurant
  • How to meditate & use meridian tapping to combat stress
  • And most importantly, how to enjoy weight loss & the entire process of change

During this intimate gathering, we’ll share meals together, enjoy the beautiful lake and natural surroundings, hike in the woods, and learn how to embrace The Gabriel Method approach to mind-body weight loss. This is an inside-out, non-diet approach unlike anything you’ve ever tried before.

In my own personal transformation process, I was fortunate to go on many similar retreats like this; and even today, I set aside at least 2-3 weeks of each year for healthy learning immersions…

… a time where I can focus just on myself and my health.
… a time to set goals and intentions for the future.
… a time to eat great food and enjoy nature.
… and most of all, a time to get inspired by an amazing group of teachers
and new friends from all over the world.

Sample Daily Schedule (subject to small changes)

  • 7:00 am – 8:00 am Gentle Yoga Class, all levels (optional)
  • 8:00 am – 9:00 am Breakfast (fresh, delicious, nourishing food)
  • 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Gabriel Method Fundamentals (led by me)
  • 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm Lunch Break (more yummy food)
  • 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm Guest Lectures, Live Q&A
  • 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm Dinner Break (great way to end the day)
  • 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm Inspiring Films, Rest & Casual Conversions

You’ll start the day at 7 am with an optional yoga class followed by a lovely breakfast. Our first session is from 9:00 to 12:00 daily, and these mornings throughout the course are where we’ll start with the macro, big-picture concepts of The Gabriel Method…

… and then very quickly, we’ll drill down into the micro application of these principles in your life.

  • How do you know if you’re suffering from a nutritional deficiency? Or toxicity?
  • What do you do if you’re sleeping poorly?
  • What if your doctor has you taking too many medications?
  • What if you have a thyroid problem, menopause, or depression?
  • And how do you deal with an unsupportive spouse?

All of this and so much more will be covered in depth during these sessions, and there will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions and get answers to your specific issues.

At noon, we break for a leisurely lunch, and you’ll have enough time to go down to the lake or take a hike. I love the outdoors, so I’m guessing that most days, I’ll be out for a walk during our afternoon break.

Our second session each day is where things get even more fun. I’ll invite several esteemed wellness experts to share with you their best tools for transformation.

I’m so excited to have 5 full days with you, and I know this will be a life-changing experience for everyone.

One thing I’ve learned is that it’s very difficult to make a big changes in your life when nothing in your day-to-day life has actually changed…

… when you’re at home, with the same people, with the same food, and at the same job with the same energy… it’s very difficult to suddenly make a big shift.

Sometimes, a physical break from your normal life gives you the distance you need to make a clear mental break and initiate some massive changes so you return refreshed with a renewed sense of purpose.

I’m sure you’ve experienced this to some extent when you go on holidays, but this retreat is so much more than a holiday. When you return, you’ll be buzzing with new ideas, new friends, and most importantly, a clear path leading you toward lifelong health and wellness.

Thanks for your interest in The Gabriel Method. I’m looking forward to August, and I very much hope you can join us.

See you then…

In health,

Jon

What People Are Saying About The Gabriel Method…

“An incredible and life changing week”

 

This has been an incredible and life changing week. Thank you every one from the bottom of my heart. You changed my world. I love and will sincerely miss you all. UNTIL NEXT YEAR! Thank you all for making this experience one I will never forget.

— Emily W.

“A huge turning point for me”

 

It was truly incredible. I went there not sure why I was going except feeling compelled to go, and it turned out to be a huge turning point for me. The speakers were incredible, and Jon’s professional yet so relaxed attitude was so refreshing! Thank you so much to Jon and his team for making this so special.

— Annabel W.

“An incredible experience”

 

An incredible experience. I loved all the GM learning, Jon’s energy and brilliance

— Megan

“A week of transformation”

 

I think Omega must be enchanted. Talk about a week of transformation. Hope it can happen again–next year?

— Esmé B.

“A truly life changing week”

 

I would just like to say a huge thank you to Jon and his team for the amazing job you did at Omega. This was a truly life changing week for so many of us. I am incredibly grateful to you all for providing the opportunity to really get in touch with you and your incredible teaching. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this and feel so grateful that I’ve been able to meet so many wonderful people. Wow, what an experience! Anyone wondering about going next year….you will not regret it.

— Annabel H.

“Thank you to everyone for the gift”

 

A big thank you to everyone for the gift that was Omega. It was an 8 hour drive home with the rainy downpours and border delay at Niagara, but I felt like I was on butterfly wings! Love and light to everyone!

— Nancy O.

“The retreat was amazing”

 

It was an incredibly powerful and wonderful experience. At the beginning of the week I found myself praying that I could implement all the tools we were learning and use them to finally let go of my weight. By the end of the week, I found myself praying that I could return to praying and meditating every day, to connect with and reawaken the deepest pieces of my soul – and from there continue to find healing. It’s been years since I’ve really listened and taken the time to meditate regularly. After the experiences of this past week, I think I’m finally ready to come back. The retreat was amazing. I am so grateful to have met and learned from so many wonderful people, the attendees, Jon, the GM Team members and the special guest speakers and presenters. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

— Deborah A.

“My mind, body and spirit are really enjoying the new way to handle cravings”

 

I’m on my way home from the retreat at Omega. I got to the gate for my flight and I was feeling energetically weird. Previously I would have gotten some pizza, a coffee drink or soda, and a rich dessert. But, pizza is grossing me out, coffee drinks are completely unappealing and where there was once an amazing craving for pastries, I don’t even see them as food. Instead I ate some almonds, drank a big thing of water, and proceeded to pace up and down the corridor for 30 minutes, then had to walk another 15 minutes to a new gate. I am amazed my mind, body and spirit are really enjoying the new way that I handled this situation!

— Kaye M.

“Eating the best food in my life”

 

Last week my wife sends me to this “Total Transformation Retreat” in upstate New York. Around Tues. afternoon I realize I’m eating the best food in my life and I’m surrounded by over ONE HUNDRED BEAUTIFUL, LOVING WOMEN. My God she sent me to Paradise!

— Michael R.

“I realized that the single biggest thing is dealing with your emotional issues”

 

My biggest take away from the retreat was realizing that even though it’s good to eat well and eventually exercise a little, the single biggest thing that will make the difference is dealing with your emotional issues, and of course finding out what they are. Without doing that your body will still hold onto weight. And the answer to dealing with the emotional issues is through tapping and cellular release, which I just had not realised the significance of before. I was rather skeptical about it, and now I am not. I had a session during Omega, which took the form of a walk and a chat, and when the GM cellular release therapist suggested we talk I thought ‘what am I going to ask her?’ And ten minutes later I was in floods of tears with all this stuff gushing up. She did tapping with me and I can’t tell you what a difference it made. I keep trying to bring the issue back up and I just can’t…. how that can be, I have no idea. But I’m not complaining!

— Annabel H.

“Nothing short of total transformation”

 

I appreciated being surrounded by like-minded people, talking through things and opening up to vulnerability and releasing emotional issues. Experiencing the Omega retreat was nothing short of total transformation. True to advertising

— Meaghan J.

“If Every Person Was Given this Book No One Would Be Obese”

 

If every person was given this book, no one would be obese. It would be an epidemic of the past. It almost seems sad people are dying because of obesity when it’s so simple to be thin!

— Alannah Cadman, New Zealand

“I Feel Like I Have Been Set Free”

 

I am now back on track with my life and feel like the person I was when I was 17 years old. It feels so great. I have got my motivation back, I am focused, the brakes are off and my life is about to take off. I am so excited. I am now putting myself first and prioritizing the things that are important to me. I didn’t realize that feeling unsafe could impact so many areas of my life, I feel like I have been set free. Thank you.

— Lynda B.

“I Was So Impressed by My Results With Jon’s Method”

 

I was working at radio station 4BC when Jon came on to our breakfast show at my request as a producer for several shows. I was so impressed by my own results with Jon’s Method, I wanted to get him on air.

— Michelle Turnbull, Australia

“Type 2 Diabetes Reversed!”

Taryn
Weight Loss: 10 kg (22 lbs)

Taryn shares her incredible story of how her diabetes was reversed using the Gabriel Method. By managing her stress, emotions and eliminating fear, Tara lost 10 kilos and got rid of her Type 2 Diabetes, much to the surprise of her doctor.

“My Whole Relationship with Food Has Changed”

 

WOW! I read [the book] over two nights, couldn’t put it down. It was like the penny had dropped, after three days of listening to your meditation CD, my whole relationship with food changed. I can’t explain my extra energy, my ability to handle my very stressful job is so much easier, I’m happier and more confident.

— Brenda Black, New Zealand

“I Have Made Positive Changes in All Aspects of My Life”

 

I am feeling so much more energetic already as I gradually introduce more live foods and nutrients into my body. Your desire to share your wealth of knowledge and amazing success with weight loss is what is so inspiring to me and I’m sure will be to millions of others around the world.

— Laura Nally, Australia

“My Energy Levels & Stamina Have Increased Exponentially”

 

After following your method I can now get back into some of my old “skinny” clothes, which is fabulous! PLUS I am eating a lot more and exercising less! So, Jon…a big THANK YOU. How wonderful for you to be able to help people in this way!

— Janet Mitchell, Australia

“The only real risk is being healthier”

Christian Petersen
Weight Loss: 52 kilos (115 lbs)

Christian shares his inspirational story about his journey and talks in depth about how The Gabriel Method was able to help transform his mind and body. Christian learned about the things that were holding him back and talks about his accomplishments due to his weight loss.

“I Now Understand What My Body Wants”

 

Your work has helped me in at least two ways: first, since my husband died 20 months ago, I added 15 pounds and have slowly lost it over a year…but it would keep coming back in 2-3 pound lots. I now know why I gained the weight and how to take it off without cycling through diets and most of all without ‘working’ at it.

— Virginia Burton

“I Have Finally Found the Holistic Weight-Loss Approach I was Looking For”

 

I have FINALLY found the holistic approach to weight loss that I have been searching for. Your method is the first holistic approach that has made sense to me. Thank you so much.

— Kathy Namaste, USA

“I Can Say with Confidence that My Weight Will Continue to Fall Off Me”

 

The Gabriel Method is the most amazing process, our bodies work the way they work. I have been using this method for a month, cut back my walking by half and people are asking me what diet I am on! I have complete pleasure in telling them I am on no diet and letting my body get me to where I need to be.

— Karen, New Zealand

“I Look Good & Feel Amazing!”


Allen Scotty Davidson
Weight Loss: 40 kg (88 lbs)

Thanks for sharing such a remarkable winning weight loss solution for obesity, this has saved my life Jon. This has saved my life.

“I am Finally Giving My Body a Chance to Live”

 

I find I am no longer obsessing about food all day. I have had chocolate bars and cake in the house all week and I have paid no attention to them (normally they would pray on my mind all day until they were gone, and still I would not be satisfied). Gone are the days of constant dieting, taking pills and shakes and feeling guilty about food. I now have a powerful tool (my mind) just took someone like yourself for me to realize it was always there for me and will work for me when I truly need it to. Any doubters out there I say, give it a go! You have nothing to lose but weight which has held you back from the true sense of living.

— Caroline

“I Can’t Stop Feeling Good & Happy”

 

I bought your book and I finished it in one day, I couldn’t put it down. Today, I saw my reflection in the shop window, and usually I would be horrified and get myself down and depressed about it, but thanks to you I smiled and thought, my body is the way it is now and I accept it. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and your wonderful work.

— Rosalia Clay

“Thank You for Giving Me a Chance at a Normal Life”

 

My doctors were all very skeptical… [but] said yesterday that he hasn’t seen me looking so well in 12 years and is totally gob smacked with the food I am now able to eat. So here is a BIG THANK YOU JON GABRIEL for giving me a chance at a normal life.
I have tried all the spectrums of health including naturopaths and the like all to no success. But the Gabriel Method has done the trick and I am jubilant that I am getting my life back.

— Dianne Gosper, Australia

“I Was Losing Weight Without Much Effort”


Lucinda “Cindy” Martin
Weight Loss: 48kg (106 lbs) in 3 years

Every night I would visualize my body exactly the way I wanted to look. It wasn’t hard work; in fact, I was losing weight without much effort. After a few weeks, my blood pressure was within the normal range and my kidney levels had also come down. Jon’s method helped me have another two years of freedom off dialysis and effortlessly I lost another 53 lbs (24 kg).

“I Have So Much More Energy”

 

I am already feeling 100% better and have so much more energy. Like you, I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get my health and weight right using both Western and alternative medicine and had all but given up trying.

— Anne Baker, Australia

“My Head is Clearer & My Mood is Better”

 

This diet has had a truly dramatic effect on how well I maintain emotional balance throughout the trading day. My head is clearer, my mood is better, and I can quantify an increase in profits starting within days of changing my diet and how I handle stress. Awesome! Thank you for your work.

— Kristen Weiers, USA

“I Feel Liberated & Free”

 

I’m healthier and more vibrant and I forgive and accept my body as it is. I have let go of the belief that I would never be as thin and beautiful as I was as a teenager and have embraced my ideal body! I have a photo of me in a bikini at 15 years old by my bed. I feel liberated and free and no longer have good and bad days! Every day is wonderful. I’ll never look back. Thank you so much!

— Kimberley Harris, New Zealand

“I Eat What I Want…”

Debbie
Weight Loss: 30 kg (66 lbs)

The Gabriel Method has changed my life. I’ve lost 30 kilos. I’m not on a diet. I’ve changed my lifestyle. I eat what I want. I want different foods… different than what I wanted before.

I used to take anti-depressants and blood pressure tablets. I don’t take them anymore. My husband can’t keep up with me! He doesn’t know where I get my energy from.

“I Feel More Empowered Already”

 

I recently gained 20 lbs during a four-month period of unemployment. But after reading your book, I get that it was due to fear of scarcity and I was trying to store as much as possible! How freeing to realize that I now have a tool for the rest of my life to make sure this never happens again. Life feels more do-able now thanks to your experience, research and desire to share with others.

— Pamela Babcock, USA

“Your Book Has Improved My Relationships”

 

Within just one hour of making that initial decision, I noticed my son who had been emotionally and verbally abusive to me on a daily basis since he was 7, began treating me differently. Intuitively, I believe, he recognized the new me and he felt quite differently towards me and at 14, he cannot name the change. Thank you for giving me back my son and for helping me to love myself again.

— Leonora Esser, Australia

“I’m Finally Sleeping Well!”

 

Since I started doing the bedtime meditation CD, I’ve slept through 7 nights in a row! This is HUGE. I’m convinced it’s the CD. When I wake up too early, I take a deep breath, relax, and find myself falling back to sleep instantly.

— Vicki Haninger

“You Have Given Me Hope”

 

You are the living proof of what I’ve believed for ages and I could not get my kinesiologist to understand that my weight issue is not about food. And yet, when I phoned her the other day to discuss the fact I felt that “GUILT” was making me FAT, she told me about your book and told me to look it up. You have given me hope, boosted my faith and got me excited. I also find your “switch” a very powerful visualization tool.

— Catherine, South Africa
