About Desmond O’Rafferty


Desmond O´Rafferty, the leader of the course is 80 years old and has more than 45 years of experience in fasting, detox, yoga and breath-work. He has held this course all over the world and has helped thousands of people improve their digestion, let go of obstructive emotional patterns, and open up to life. 

Even doctors themselves had attended Desmond’s workshops and recommend them to their patients to cure various illnesses and diseases. Desmond has experienced people on wheelchairs suffering from MS, that began to walk free after the one-week course; people who suffering from diabetes, who stopped using their daily drugs.

Well-being, health and rejuvenation self-care along with a daily meditation and yoga practice has been Desmond’s interest for over 40 years. In the late 70’s his interest coupled with an interest in mastery of breath-work and led him to the hills of the Himalayas where he’d heard that a great Guru by the name of Babaji of Herikhan was teaching about it. This is where he was introduced into Kriya yoga by Babaji himself.

Desmond later traveled to Big Island of Hawaii and worked with Aunty Margaret, the renowned high Kahuna woman. She favored him with private and personal counselling and she showed him the art of cleansing from the sacred system that had been passed from healing women to women for over 5,000 years and was part of the inner knowledge of their shaman.

Desmond is an eighty-three-year-old man, a yogi full of vitality happy to share the secrets how to enjoy life fully and be grateful for what life has to offer.

About Anthony O’Rafferty


Anthony O’Rafferty has recently been teaching a group in Cuba in the essence of Hawaiian cleanse detox as taught to him by Desmond, his father. During his time with the group he sharesd with them the teachings and insights that he had gained during his four decades of interest that first was inspired by his contact with the Japanese master Koi Takeuchi.

His love for movement and life first manifested into skateboarding, later karate; and then yoga and dance.

He shares his love for movement, balance, and energy while leading the group through the ‘Kahuna detox’, a life changing challenge that is subtle but yet fundamentally touches the very heart of matters as the days unfold.

He says –“There is no truth to be told only an understanding of ones self”.

As well as teachings from the classics of India and Japan, he also likes teachings of Louise Hay,Wayne Dyer & Tony Robbins.

He is more likely to be found in a Cuban dance hall than an Ashram these days in his pursuit of joy, balance, rhythm and connection.
