What Kate did in Goa

I taught the first 25 hour course in Goa in January, and it went very well, better than I had hoped. Initially, I was worried about teaching for that long (would I run out of things to say?!), but in actuality I found it easier to teach over a longer period than I do a shorter period. It meant we could fully get to grips with the material, without rushing through things, trying to fit them in. Plus, I think what is just as important on the course as the material, is the opportunity to connect with other like-minded people on the same path. We had a gorgeous group of people in Goa, and the opportunity to connect and build friendships is even greater over a week than it is when we are just meeting for a day. We had two couples come out of our Goa retreat, and I, for one, made a few new best friends.

So here’s the lowdown, and I hope you can join me either in Iceland in April, or in Turkey in May. If you’re looking to share raw foods professionally, either as a chef, or educator, or as an adjunct to your existing work as a yoga teacher, naturopath or motivational coach, for example, I can truly think of no better way to steep yourself in the information you need to set you on your path. It’s an exciting time for raw foods, but the movement will only gather pace if people are sharing the correct information, and coming from a centred and stable place with the diet. I’m confident that I can point you in the right direction, so you can set sail on the good ship Raw Magic for all the adventures your heart desires, without fear of shipwreck!

Raw Magic in Iceland runs from April 23rd-27th . It’s £320 (61,000 Kr) Special Early Bird Price available until 1st March 2012. From March 1st the price will go up to £350 (67,000 Kr). For two people booking together the price will remain £320 (61,000 Kr) each.

This 25 hour course gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in raw cuisine and philosophy, in beautiful surroundings, with wonderful people.

Kate will cover the full spectrum of the Raw Magic lifestyle; we promise that you will finish the course armed with a practical knowledge of how to make magic in the kitchen, along with a transformed awareness of how to empower yourself and implement the magic in your world.

Everyone who completes the course satisfactorily will receive a certificate, an endorsement from Kate and Raw Living which you may use should you wish to start teaching classes or offering catering services yourself. You also get your own beautiful Raw Magic apron, worth £15, and the course booklet.

All participants get 10% off their Raw Living shopping from the time that they book, and for a month after the course. Everyone also receives a free month’s membership to Kate’s Magic Bubble for the month following the course.

Both courses have accommodation on site, with raw meals and yoga classes available. In Iceland, we will be going to Glo for dinner each evening, one of the best raw restaurants in the world, as well as taking trips out to the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle. If you choose Turkey, you can enjoy the stunning beaches and soak up some rays in the lush Mediterranean climate.  At the first course we had participants from 10 different countries! So it’s a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and develop your network of raw friends around the world.

The Course

Topics covered on the course include: holistic detox techniques, superfoods, the most important principles to create the best foundation in the body for optimum cellular health; travelling and how to stay raw when you’re not at home in your own kitchen; children on raw; and what in Kate’s experience is the best raw food diet for the Northern European climate. Kate will share information on all the important elements to include on a raw food diet, from both the nutritional aspect, so as a chef you will be creating dishes with optimum nutrition and maximum digestibility, and equally the flavour aspect, so you will be creating recipes that your friends and family repeatedly tell you are the best things they have ever tasted! We will comprehensively cover all the new and unusual ingredients that comprise the raw store cupboard and how to work them into your recipes. There are ample opportunities to taste both the food and the individual ingredients throughout each day.

Recipes include Green Juice, Sublime Sushi, Onion Bread, Deviation Chocolate, Strawberry Deelite, Hemp Milk, Mystic Mayo, Kale Chips, Crazy Curry, Rum n Raisin Fudge, SuperSmoothie, Broccoli Burgers, Hardcore Salad, Chris’s Muddy Crackers, Gorgeous Goji Pudding, They Call Me Mellow Yellow, Renegade Chia, Siouxsie Soup (with Kelp noodles), Mayan Relish, and last but not least, the legendary Quantum Cake.

What Previous Course Participants Say

“Thank you Kate for an amazingly Magic week! Thank you for your hard work and energy. Raw Magic in Goa was everything I wanted and much more….because of you I now have 22 new friends!” Sonia, UK

“It was an amazing time…. powerful learning experience being a part of the Raw Magic school. Thank you.” Anna, UK.

“The course was an inspirational, spiritually awakening, refreshing and mind expanding experience that I believe everyone should take part in before they embark on a raw food journey. The most valuable things that I have learned is that it is not a diet, it is a way of life, and that you must include other vital rituals so we can make the most out of our lives as a whole. Kate’s experience, sharing and teaching is an essential part of the raw food revolution. Thank you so much.” Leah, UK
