Total Transformation® at LifeFest Kapalua

An Extended Weekend Living Intensive with Kat James
Kapalua Villas, Maui, Hawaii, September 22-26th

We are excited to announce our first-ever offering of Kat James’ acclaimed Total Transformation® Program in a Weekend Intensive format as part of LifeFest Kapalua, at the spectacular Kapalua Resort on Maui, September 22-26th. Recently featured in Condé Nast Traveler as representing the cutting edge in “makeover travel”, Total Transformation® is the real-life experience of the very principles and strategies that transformed Kat James over fifteen years ago. Click here to read the story in Conde Nast Traveler.

Heighten Your Physical Benefits from LifeFest by making it a Total Transformation® Weekend By experiencing Kat’s intimate, lifestyle program as you attend LifeFest Kapalua, you’ll not only learn about, but actually begin a series of powerful shape- and skin-transforming lifestyle “upgrades” from your very first day! You will maximize your time at the Kapalua Resort and your body will experience one of the purest, most rejuvenating weekends of your life. That means you return home looking and feeling different.

Kat promises the physical benefits will be noticeable, often including a flatter abdomen, de-puffed facial features, and dramatically decreased or eliminated food and caffeine cravings... And without the usual deprivation or drill sergeant tactics. In fact, it’s just the opposite — you’ll enjoy far tastier food, snacks, beverages and desserts than you’re used to (even if you’re being “bad”), and the widest variety of luscious and pure personal care products you’ve ever tried in one weekend. This is the ultimate girlfriend’s trip, bridesmaid’s gift, and mother-daughter bonding experience! Men will enjoy it, too (and can slip away for a round of world-class golf).

About Kat James

You may have seen Kat James’ story of dramatic transformation in your favorite beauty or health magazine, on PBS, or in her acclaimed book, The Truth About Beauty. In addition to being an internationally renowned beauty expert and celebrity makeup artist, Kat has become a leader in holistic self-transformation, weight loss, and lifestyle, offering a rare inside perspective. Kat has done more than just talk about extreme transformation, she dramatically transformed her own body by dropping ten dress sizes after emotionally and biochemically conquering a 12-year eating disorder; she overcame a life-threatening liver disorder; and even overcame chronic eczema -- all against great odds. She is a powerful motivator with a passion for tangible truths and creative strategies that spell the difference between mere good intentions and real results.

Are You Ready to be Transformed?

Come “live along with Kat” in her Total Transformation® Villa during LifeFest Kapalua!! You’ll stay with Kat and other Total Transformation® participants in a cluster of Kapalua Villas, as you explore a new foundation for unprecedented freedom from beauty self-sabotage and stubborn food or weight issues and quickly become a connoisseur of your own self-cultivation. Kat guarantees you’ll return home not only with a transformed approach to food and all aspects of self-care; but a transformed relationship with your self.
