The Reset for Resilience is a tangible action step you can take on behalf of yourself and the collective.
Resilience is cultivated through routine, ritual and rest.
The Reset for Resilience is based in the wisdom of Ayurveda, a framework that is grounded in nature. It acknowledges that, with fractal awareness of how the elements are organized within and around us, we can orient toward deeper connection to ourselves, our communities and the planet in small and big ways.
During the 5 days of cleansing, we will guide you to embody simple Ayurvedic practices, work with the Earth’s elements, and find cadence with nature’s rhythms to weave these keys to resilience into your life. You will leave with small and sustainable personal practices that can be leveraged for collective and planetary wellbeing.
Throughout the program, we will also recommend books and podcasts to engage with during your Reset that inspire you to embody your pleasure and purpose.
The goal is to return home to your body and your innate wisdom so that you are able to co-create a world that invites everyone to thrive.
Founders of Cultivate Balance
Molly & Sierra of Cultivate Balance
Unlike other cleanses, which can be very harsh on the body, ultimately leaving you weaker than when you began, The Reset for Resilience is designed to enhance your strength and energy by offering your body deep nourishment. This is a lifestyle design program, revolving around a cleanse that actually tastes good and feels good while you’re doing it. You will feel nourished and satiated throughout your day, rather than hungry and depleted. Preparation is fast, easy and affordable, and you won’t ever be so hungry that you feel anxious or unable to function in your daily life. The intelligence of The Reset for Resilience is that it eases you into healthy and sustainable eating habits that will feel great in your body, while supporting a deeper relationship to self.
Please join us for group cleanses in October and April of each year. Although an Ayurvedic cleanse is great throughout the year, it especially beneficial at the junction between seasons (Summer to Fall, Winter to Spring). It is also very supportive during potentially stressful moments of life transitions, whenever you need a quick reset, anytime you want to get digestion or nutrition back on track (i.e after the holidays), and when recovering from illness or surgery. The Reset for Resilience is designed to include just 5 days of committed cleansing, with a full 28 days of engagement with the process. For optimal results, make sure that you have enough time and space to commit to all the (luxurious) components of gentle cleansing, including a week of preparation beforehand and a week of mindfully transitioning afterward.
In the first 9 days of preparation, you will simplify your diet to focus on fresh produce, whole grains, organic proteins and nourishing fats. During the 5 days of focused cleansing, you will enjoy Indian soups made from mung dal, spices and ghee, as well as warm broth, spiced apples and fresh juices. In the 7-day reintegration phase, you will slowly reintroduce foods by beginning with the easiest to digest and working toward more complex and rejuvenative foods in the fourth week. You will listen to your body along the way. We will guide you through every phase with easy to follow meal plans, recipe guides and checklists. Eating this way is an ancient method used to reset digestion — the foundation of radiant health — and to gently detoxify your entire body.
Cultivate Balance provides the meal guides, recipes and shopping lists, but does not provide the food, herbs or optional self care tools. We do our best to have a low environmental impact, which means limiting the amount of packaging/shipping we do. We encourage you to access the freshest ingredients by sourcing them locally yourself. For those ingredients that are difficult to source locally, we provide you with access to an easy-to-order portal + discount to order everything you need. This also enables you to customize your meal plan to exactly what will feel best your body.
Guided group programs run in the Fall and Spring each year. You will have access to this entire program for three months from the day the guided group program begins.
Because this is a nourishing Reset, you will never be so hungry that you feel anxious or unable to function in your daily life, so you will be able to keep up with your personal responsibilities. So while it is possible to complete The Resilience Reset without taking time off work, we do find that the cleanse is more effective when participants have at least a few days to truly unplug and disengage from the incessant need to be productive. The cleanse portion of the Reset (Part 2) is five days — so if possible, plan for at least three of those days to be non-working. If that means utilizing two days of the weekend and taking one official day off work, that is great! The more you can enable yourself to truly rest during this Reset, the more resilience you will find on the other side.
We know, the coffee thing is hard — but it’s best if you can at lease reduce your caffeine intake. If you are currently drinking coffee every day, we recommend tapering down gradually during the preparation phase, which is the first nine days of the program in the case of The Reset. To do this, try cutting your regular coffee quantity in half, then in half again. Next, transition to a chai latte, mud wtr, maté beverage, cacao, or green tea for a couple days. Then, consider a caffeine alternative such as RASA original, mushroom coffee, or brahmi tea. We honor that cutting down on caffeine can be really challenging — trust us, we've been there! We hope this recommendation for tapering down offers a little more ease. If it’s not realistic for you to cut out caffeine and still meet the needs of your life, transition to green tea during the week of the cleanse.
This cleanse is for anyone in relatively stable health who desires a moment of reprieve and feels they could benefit from more lightness and clarity. People with all gender identifications are welcome and encouraged to participate. This cleanse is not recommended for those suffering from any sort of debilitating condition or extreme weakness, as the body will not have enough strength to engage in even gentle detoxification. This cleanse is also not for children under the age of 10, though they may certainly enjoy the nourishing recipes along with you.
The Spring 2023 version of The Reset is that it is now 4 weeks long instead of 3, in order to provide more support in the process of rejuvenation and building an ongoing Ayurvedic lifestyle that integrates with your life and work. In addition, we are now offering a Custom Experience in which participants who purchase this add on will receive a weekly one-on-one consultation with either Molly or Sierra.

I feel so wonderful after completing the Reset for Resilience cleanse. The food was delicious, the self care practices felt like pampering and my body feels so healthy! I was introduced to so many new delicious recipes and food combinations. I followed the recipes and meal plan suggestions and it worked out beautifully!

This is a gentle approach to a cleanse making it manageable and something that I feel I can continue afterwards! Other cleanses have been so “all or nothing” and I often would plunge back into old habits immediately after. With this one, I am easily eating healthier by choice. I am resting and listening to my body. I couldn’t do the cleanse exactly like it is designed because I had work and family commitments but the design of it makes me still feel successful. The focus is on the journey!Read Less

After the pandemic, I had been feeling more brain fog and low energy and wanted to switch things up but didn't entirely know how. When I came across this reset, I knew this is what I needed. Days after the 5-day reset and into the reintegration period, my body feels clear and grounded. I'm not feeling reliant on caffeine to get through the days, and my cravings have gone down. I can't say it was an easy journey, but it was an enlightening one, and the support I felt from Molly and Sierra was so helpful. I'd definitely do it again, and would highly recommend this course to others feeling the same.Read Less

I am so grateful with Sierra and Molly for guiding us in this process, your advices and all the material that they shared were really helpful and beautifully presented. I loved that they shared a holistic perspective of cleansing: podcasts, beauty routines, exercise. The food is truly nurturing, all the spices bring that cozy heat that helps you do the cleansing in a friendly way... plus the taste is delicious!Read Less

The 21-day Reset was excellent. It is such a great intro into dosha types, and foods and daily care that support each type. But most of all it walks you through (what initially looks overwhelming) information into daily, and time of day schedules to get a more personal understanding of the information. It was reassuring to see that most of the foods for my dosha type are actually personal preferences. However, there were also self-sabotaging foods that I will remove or limit to times of strong agni. The scheduling for food and self-care have been, and will be, especially helpful to my well-being. It became particularly evident that 'lack of consistency' in my daily schedule may be the most significant drain on my physical and mental health. (Ie. unintentionally skipping meals, and even care) And then the suggested times for rest, reflection and meditation are something I will allow greater space for in my ongoing schedule. My intent each day is to be more aware (throughout the day) of my connection to the Source of All Life (Love), and therefore more aware of our connection to each other, and to all creation. More awe, more wonder, more curiosity. More care and compassion for others and for myself. Thank you ladies for a well-done, well-paced RESET program. jjRead Less

It is rare that I take the time to slow down and listen to what my body is asking for. The Reset for Resilience really helped me get to know my body in a new way.

There’s so much wisdom in this cleanse. My body felt in ways that it hasn’t felt before. I slept well, I felt clarity, my body felt excellent.

This reset program helped me to feel much more intentional about my meals, my routines, and my consumption overall. I was able to reflect much more on how food made me feel overall - without feeling depleted, and I was more in tune with how certain situations or input affected my own inner peace. However, when the reset was done, I did fall back into habits that didn’t serve my own inner peace (screen time, nightly wine, etc.) but now I feel like I have a foundation to get back into a ritual that is beneficial for me with this reset. I am definitely going to sign up for the next one in the spring!Read Less

This was my first cleanse EVER. Generally, I am extremely cautious about anything involving elimination diets for health reasons. Molly's reassurance and the description of the cleanse as nourishing instead of reductive sold me! I also loved the complete flexibility. I made a point to follow everything as closely as I could, but, as a teacher and horse trainer, life can be a bit hectic at times. Being able to watch recordings of virtual meetings, adjust timing/dates, and incorporate menu modifications allowed me to make time for authentic self-care, reflection, and physical activity. I highly recommend this cleanse - it's perfect for us busy bees and go-getters who tend to be more go than slow!Read Less

Throughout the Rest for Resilience, I was impressed at how it allowed me opportunities to physically, mentally, and emotionally step back and reflect. I did find it to be a wonderful and thorough reset, while gentle enough to continue with normal life of work and a family with small kids at home. Molly and Sierra were also very present to support throughout the process. Highly recommend!Read Less

After completing The Rest for Resilience program, I am experiencing less bloating in my body, less anxiety and overwhelm, and am overall feeling more grounded and attuned to my body and needs. Molly and Sierra do an excellent job of walking you through it step-by-step and making the practices accessible. They've generously given recipes to use throughout the cleanse as well as post-cleanse that I use regularly. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for a way to learn more about your specific body needs and improve your overall well-being!Read Less

Within the Reset for Resilience, you will experience step-by-step guidance to facilitate your own cleanse (from wherever you are!) — in a way that is deeply nourishing, effective, and restorative.
Sierra and Molly will walk you through powerful cleansing techniques, Ayurvedic how-tos and more than ten detailed self care practices that will bring you home to your body.
