Montevideo imagination moments, garden family, couscous, Dorit's workshop and the Raw Celebration

Am in Montevideo.. having a great day.. danced & swayed.. coconuts & bananas.. drums & horns.. goji & cacao.. and lots of great people, high vibrations .. a PurpleChocolateJesus bar. Talking krishnamurti & tolle.. watching ducks with a long-time, new-found soul friend.. every moment is better than the last.. and I have to come home tomorrow.. to a durian for breakfast ..a gift from a friend who I barely know yet & appreciate so much.. and I am really excited about it.. cause I told you the story about my Mom’s & my Christmas durian right?

Jinjee & Storm have over 300 people joining them on a 7 Day Raw Journey starting tomorrow. More info at their website

Recipe from Raven ..from Jinjees daily raw inspiration letter:

Raven just invented a new kind of couscous! Cut up some cauliflower and pulse it in the food processor down to couscous sized bits (about half the size of a grain of rice). Now you have a base that is a lot like rice, or almost exactly like couscous, and that you can flavor the way you would a rice dish. We put olive oil, garlic, salt, paprika, leeks and thinly sliced celery on it. Delicious!! And there are a thousand different ways to vary this dish! Small food processors are available at any home store for as little as $35 and can make your raw vegan lifestyle a lot easier - and more tasty too!
Enjoy! Jinjee

The Sacred Art of Eating Workshops with Dorit

For most of us, eating is something we believe we do. However, in this new workshop, Dorit, author of "Celebrating Our Raw Nature" and Certified Organic, Vegan, Living Foods ,Chef and Chopra Centre Educator asserts that we do not do know how to eat. Through a series of exercises practiced during the course of the workshops and at Retreats, Dorit teaches that the process of eating is a very sacred ritual and that true eating begins way before the first morsel of food enters the mouth. This Lifeskills Coach who is a student of many ancient philosophies and traditions , believes that mastication is a lost art form and that we now shovel precious morsels of food in our mouths and immediately down our throats in order to "stuff" whatever we are feeling or experiencing at the time. Participants in the workshops learn how to use colours and decor as well as artistically pleasing/environmentally safe table settings and organic living foods to bring the sense of calm, comfort and connection with self that we so anxiously yearn for. Those who already experienced these workshops found that lifelong battles with excess weight as well as various conflicts with food and anxiety around meal times are not only relieved but that their entire relationship with food has changed.

The amazing and life changing film "The Secret" will be shown towards the end of the day.
