No looking back

This is it. No looking back. It's posted for you.

All the heart touching, emotional, and life
changing stories have given me the courage to
stand up and declare a battle hymn for our
republic!

I put this out there for you to tell the world
know that you care and want to make a difference.
"It" is sort of a declaration to raw food
revolution.

Meyerowitz will present „Sprouts the Miracle Food‰ in which he will demonstrate how to grow your own fresh organic foods year round and without soil.

Wild edibles class in Dallas

A happy hello!

I am sorry I don't send many mails right now.  We are in the middle of moving...and are sitting between two continents for a few weeks ;). Thanks for hanging in there! I will write more about raw foods, wild edibles & much more as often as I can in between. :)

But now I want to announce another wild edible walk! I am excited to do another wild edible class north of Dallas! I am grateful to have this opportunity again. It is so important and I truly hope as many people as possible  learn about nature¹s super foods as it changes one¹s view of nature, our mother which we have to protect and get really close to. It will change your awareness! And isn't that what it's all about: our conscious awareness! What we are aware we realize it's there! We are surrounded by wonders...and just have to open up for them to really see and appreciate them...Learn to eat for FREE right from nature’s abundance!

Join us on April 27, 2008
2 - 4 pm or 4 - 6 pm

If you want to read more about it or register please click here:
www.wildedibles.wordpress.com. I created this website to inform you more about wild edibles...so, stay tuned...more will be added soon. Please forward this information to all your friends!

Please spread the word ­ it is important for all of us! We need to get a deeper connection to the plants that are there to nourish us instead of the industry!

Let's explore the wonders of nature!

Lots of love & happy energy!
Sonja

Meetings and Events

"The gathering of people is what most frightens oppressive government. Wherever freedom reigns in the world, there is open communication amongst people. When we gather, we gain power. When we fail to gather, we only fail ourselves. Therefore, let us not forsake the gathering of ourselves together. It is as vital now as it has ever been." - Jay North

Raw Vegan fest in India

We’ve been talking a lot about Raw Spirit Fest in Sedona, Arizona. Well, that’s not the only international Raw Vegan Festival…

In India, veganism is a novelty and one can hardly find a completely vegan venue suitable for this kind of event. Though there is a huge vegetarian population, top class complete vegetarian venue itself is very rare. Since the venue is a totally vegetarian 3 star hotel, it is the natural choice. In addition, it being a pilgrimage place, thousands of people visit this place everyday. Therefore, being here, the message of veganism can be spread among people from different places.

RNS Residency, Murdeshwar is located in the western coast of South India, about 800kms south of Mumbai, 200kms south of Goa Airport and 160kms north of Mangalore (nearest airport). It is a centrally air conditioned three star hotel with 85 rooms and 2 suites. It does not serve meat or meat products in its premises at all times and has three vegetarian restaurants. It is located on a picturesque island hillock, sea tides hitting the base of the building.

Raw Spirit Fest 2007 Report

by Nina Levy
(click on photos for larger images)

058_2As a representative for the Creative Health Institute, I had the pleasure and privilege to participate in the third annual Raw Spirit Festival October 12th thru the 14th, hosted by The Radisson Resort in Sedona, Arizona.

We set up our booth beneath a shady tree, and hung our banner from the branches. We were surrounded by red rock and soaring hills outlined against the clear blue sky. It was magnificent!

083Many wonderful guests visited our booth. I was surprised by the numerous people who know Don Haughey, the founder of CHI, and who knew Dr. Ann Wigmore.  I felt honored when they ardently shared great memories with me about them and their stay with us at CHI in Michigan. I realized thru their eyes how significant this work is, and how these extraordinary individuals, Don Haughey and Dr. Ann Wigmore, devoted their lives to supporting people on their quest to reclaim a healthful life. That is quite a gift of compassion to give to humanity.

Over the course of the weekend, under the Creative Health Institute’s banner, we sold many books, had long chats and were very busy listening, speaking and learning. It was an uplifting experience.

At the Raw Spirit Festival there were many inspirational and educational speakers, such as Victoria Boutenko, David Wolfe, Viktoras Kulvinskas and Dr. Jameth Sheridan, to name but a few. Not only were there many lectures to choose from, there was music, dance, morning yoga, many workshops and food demos (who could stop tasting?). It was so much fun.

The international crowd was an outstanding collection of individuals. A generally youngish mix of singles, couples, families and older folks who were all in high spirits, peacefully interacting with each other and enjoying the atmosphere.  I was inspired by their commitment to healthful living and enthused by their sense of global cooperation and consciousness.  Indeed, a high mindedness expressed itself in every gentle move they made or word they spoke.  As a group they were powerfully aware and nonviolent, generous and kind, attributes you don’t often observe in such a large crowd.

Last year there were 300 attendees, and this year the count jumped to 2500+.  If this is a testimony of the direction society is heading in the not-too-distant future, then bring it on, full force! What a wonderful World this will be!

Creative Health Institute is already planning our booth for next year. We’ve got some great ideas, so plan on attending the next Raw Spirit Festival.

In the meantime, you are invited to join us at our Open House and Luncheon every Sunday at 2:30.  Call us: (517) 278-6260.

Joy and Blessings,
Nina
