People want experiences. With the thought that it would fulfill them. That they will find meaning in the material. Here and now. Satisfying our desires and emotions is impossible. It is a resource that demands more and more. A resource that tires, exhausts, and has no end. The only one that can feed us is our original bond.

A bond that works on all three levels of our existence (physical, psychological and spiritual). It is quiet and calm. It is like a compass that guides us in the right direction. It is our ally that warns us about what is right and what is not. Someone who guides us on how to live in this world. Will we consider what is right and what is not harmful? Or will we take our own path and digress?

“The modern man” is sworn to the material. He no longer has faith in the transcendent. His soul becomes so tightly sealed that not even a thin thread of the spiritual world penetrates it. He no longer has an open heart. A heart that resonates only with essence. The commercialized material world does not carry with it tradition, values and respect. It is only a pale shadow of what was once created in its perfection. Superficial, quick and arrogant. Rough and robust. Competitive. Without refinement and depth. We are all in this boat. Without exception.

That’s why we see fasting as another fad that will help us lose weight, strengthen the immune system and heal. But that’s not the case. Healthy and properly prepared food is of secondary importance during fasting. First the heart must be open, only then comes the stomach. First the spiritual, then the physical.

The story of Daniel and his three friends is a clear call that calls us to be brave in our decisions. Our decisions, which are not based on mere reason, but primarily on the basis of our conscience and our heart. Decisions that have their foundation in the spiritual world are solid and originally true. They are based on eternal and commanded truths and do not change according to our emotions, our point of view, our thinking and values. They are based on clear and original rules that predate time and space. Decisions that do not give us the option of several paths. On the contrary, they only allow us one. The one that is real and only one.

The basis of fasting is an inner conversation, a search for silence and a deepening of the connection with the transcendental. Fasting is laying aside the burdens imposed on us by the material world. A wounded soul can only be healed through a spiritual path. Only if it can lay down its heavy burden and trust that the right thing will be taken care of. Fasting helps us to strengthen our character through self-control and self-discipline and rediscover the values that we have inscribed in our spirit, and which are too shy to come to the fore in the noise and abundance of the material world. Spiritual fortitude is our invisible inner strength, with the confidence that we will never be alone, no matter what happens.

For the autophagy process, it is very important that a minimum of 12 hours pass between the last and first meal.

The rules of St. Daniel’s fast

The spiritual fast of St. Daniel is an ancient fast that encompasses all aspects of our existence – physical, psychological and spiritual.

Fasting means complete DISCIPLINE and knows no shortcuts or excuses. The rules are clear and only work if we fully obey and follow them.

Preparation for the fast should start 3 days before the fast.


We consume food that contains a lot of fiber (vegetables, cereals, unprocessed and integrated grains – wholemeal rice, buckwheat, oats, millet, spelt…). In total, vegetables and fruits represent 70% of your diet (vegetable-fruit ratio: 70%-30%.) Carbohydrates and fats represent 30% of your diet.


First meal: breakfast 7:00-9:00

Second meal: afternoon fruit and vegetable snack

Third meal: early dinner – no later than 17:00! No intermediate snacks and brunches. If you experience a sugar crisis, consume a glass of carrot, apple and beetroot juice. The juice should always be a mixture of vegetables and fruit (the % of vegetables should be higher than the percentage of fruit). Consume max. 2 juices of 2 dcl each per day.

Drinks during fasting:

Completely exclude COFFEE, REAL TEAS, FIZZY and ENERGY DRINKS, ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES (also the so-called ZERO VERSIONS, e.g. beer), SWEET SYRUPS and everything that belongs to the PROCESSED category. This also applies to artificial sweeteners! LIVING WATER is essential during fasting. That is why you will enjoy living and ionized water with crystals – a water elixir.

Herbs during fasting

While fasting, you will enjoy organic herbal preparations for detoxification by Jože Majes, Ecological Farm Plavica.

Movement during fasting

Early in the morning, you will go for a walk in the Kraška gmajna – a brisk walk to feel the heartbeat. In the evening, after dinner, a light walk to calm down the body and prepare it for sleep.

Sleeping during fasting

In the evening, go to rest no later than 9:00. Telephones and electronic devices are PROHIBITED. Some people will be left breathless just reading this. But fasting will only work if we think about all aspects of our being. Even those invisible on the energy level. Pick up a book instead, connect with your inner voice. Sleep peacefully. Don’t forget to say thank you for the NICE DAY that was meant for you.
