Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire people around the world to awaken their innate power to heal.

We do this through community support and experiential programs online and at our educational retreat center. Our students restore balance and vitality to the body, mind, and spirit. We teach the Living Foods Lifestyle™ advanced by Ann Wigmore, including vegan, easy-to-digest food and a spectrum of sustainable self-healing practices that work with the power of nature.

What is the Living Foods Lifestyle™?

Ann Wigmore used the word “LIFESTYLE” for a reason. Lifestyle is more than a diet. She created a complete lifestyle, a philosophy and practical guide for total health and vitality. It includes reconnecting with nature, food that heals, food combining principles, self-sufficiency, attention to our inner voice and innate wisdom, knowledge of our physical bodies, and our individual spiritual connections.

Living Foods consist of raw vegan plant-based foods that are prepared in a way that is easy to digest, such as:

  • chlorophyll-rich leafy greens, sprouts, and microgreens
  • activated seeds and nuts 
  • sea vegetables
  • land vegetables
  • fruit and berries
  • activated grains (limited)
  • cultured foods including Rejuvelac™ and sauerkraut
  • nut and seed patés, “cheeses”, and “yoghurts”
  • dehydrated sweet or savory snacks
  • wheatgrass juice
  • blended soups and drinks
  • “Energy Soup”

We look forward to welcoming you to our healing center.

The food is high in enzymes, chlorophyll-rich and extremely easy to digest so that your body can receive optimal nourishment while devoting less energy to the digestive process. This conserves energy that the body can then use for healing, rebuilding, and disease prevention. By spending less energy on digestion, you are able to have more energy for the overall maintenance of your body and the functioning of your organs, muscles and nerves.

Our gardens and greenhouses provide much of the organic produce we use in our kitchen. Our meals and beverages are all freshly prepared on site each day, with flavors and colors that are vibrant and inviting.

Through this simple natural lifestyle, people from all walks of life can take control of their lives and their health. Since opening in Aguada, Puerto Rico in 1990, thousands of people from all over the world have visited our intimate non-profit center to learn how to optimize their health, prevent illness and create joyful lives.

Nestled beside a beautiful beach in a tropical climate is one of my favorite wellness havens. I have loved my time at Ann Wigmore learning how to be healthy happy and empowered. I fully recommend the LFL course. It will change your life in the most beautiful way.

Better and Better… Deeper and Deeper… Magic and miracles happen here. The body not only heals physically but sturcturally as well. The mind becomes clear and spirit expands to a greater consciosness. This institute is helping to heal the planet one person at a time. I am 73 and as I leave the institute I feel I am stronger mentally, physically, emotional and spiritually then ever before in my life deep gratitude. Blessing!

I came to heal my skin (eczema), mind (grief), and pain (arthritis). I also found community and learned more than I can write in words. Mission accomplished!
