Registration begins at 7:30
8am-8:30 Breakfast (vegan and raw vegan options) 

8:30 - 10am
Room 1: Chris Whitcoe and Erika Henson present "Tantric Nutrition". Relationships and nutrition are the basis of daily life for many people. They are very connected and intertwine in many ways, very often without notice. Creating healthy relationships with our bodies as well as with our loved ones and business associates is essential to happiness, health, and success. When we make mistakes in relationships it can cause several years of frustration in our lives and much suffering in families, along with inner feelings of failure. The same is true in our relationship to diet, nutrition, and food. Lack of nourishing relationships can cause emotional eating. Lack of proper nutrition for our individual health needs can create  dis-ease in our emotional lives and psychological states, subtly disrupting our relationships over time.

There is no need for these very common stressors in our society. Understanding ancient knowledge of individual dietary recommendations along with modern scientific studies enables people to find youthfulness and health. Deep understanding of nurturing relationships and psychology helps awaken passionate, creative, and successful relationships. The balanced interplay of nourishing food and relationships benefits every aspect of life.

Room 2: Carrie Leigh presents “Demystifying Colon Hydrotherapy”.  Carrie will provide an overview of Colon Hydrotherapy, discussing the benefits of colonics, what to expect during and after and how to prepare to get the best results from your colon hydrotherapy.

10:15 - 11:45
Room 1: Laura Chiraya Fox presents  “Enhancing Your Biofield and The Environment Through Local Organic Raw Plant Foods” Did you know that adding more raw organic food to your diet, especially when local, constitutes The Sustainable Feast?

Find out more about how raw foods impact the environment and your biofield integrity in this powerful and timely talk by founder of Best of Raw and the Raw Living Expo, Laura Chiraya Fox.

Room 2: Kimberly Kingsley presents “Free Spirit Diet: Embracing Detox as a Lifestyle”. Detoxing one’s diet is about so much more than physical health. It offers a path to inner peace and emotional freedom. In this talk, Kimberly Kingsley will explore the connection between emotions and food and offer a five-step approach to detox that will vitalize your health and free your spirit.
