In Memory of MaryLou Sackett


Our Creative Health Institute Family is saddened by the loss of our longtime friend MaryLou Sackett. MaryLou has passed into heaven but warm memories of her remain with us on earth.

Please join us in remembering MaryLou and her family in your prayers.

MaryLou worked at Creative Health Institute for several years and then started her own healing center in Hillsdale.

We are grateful for her many contributions to Creative Health Institute and to the raw living food community.


March has been a wonderful month so far at the Creative Health Institute, with amazing new programs and wonderful guests. We just finished our first Raw Chef 2 Advanced class and our guests expressed their creativity in such amazing ways. To prepare for the weekend with them, our interns worked around-the-clock to shelve our bookstore with homemade raw treats guests could take home. Our suggested donations for our homemade products are very reasonable and everybody enjoys having them on hand. Now we’re gearing up for a jam-packed 10-Day Detox and two packed juice fasts and we look forward to a wonderful spring. Thanks so much to everyone for your loving support of our amazing non-profit raw living food community. Please make plans to come and see us again soon. We’ve just added another three-day juice fast to our schedule due to popular demand of that program. It starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 14 and ends at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 17. Guests are welcome to leave earlier in the day on Sunday if they need to get back to work. Our juice fast program is special because it gives you an opportunity to undergo a supervised cleanse and attend educational classes about juicing for health and wellness.
