 Raw Food Class and lecture

Your Relationship with Food will be fundamentally altered.

Oct 29-Nov 10, 2017



"I loved the experience. The Conscious Eating I and II courses are amazing." ~ Isabel S

Internationally acclaimed as one of the most holistic, comprehensive raw-food training programs available, the Conscious Eating course offers an amazingly thorough exploration of the intricacies of a plant-based lifestyle.  It illuminates the powerful role that raw food has in the enhancement of all levels of being.  Physically, a diet comprised of plant-based, raw foods is associated with the amelioration of many diseases, including diabetes, depression, cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, and more.  Emotionally, making compassionate food choices is profoundly powerful in promoting peace with the self and with the ecology of the planet. Spiritually, a diet of raw plant foods supports our bodies and energies as superconductors for the Divine. Optimal health, longevity, vitality, spiritual upliftment, and attunement are hallmarks of a raw food lifestyle.
