VEI proudly offers a week-long educational retreat in the Sierra mountains of California featuring a holistic, plant-based diet.

What better way to do that than in nature, in a supportive environment, where you not only are you being fed delicious, healthy plant-based meals, but you have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of educational classes and healthy, fun, physical activities. The Vegetarian Educational Institute offers holistic vegetarian retreats for all ages. Be inspired by world renowned teachers and expand your knowledge of natural health.
