I am also taking Alissa's class in September!! I am relatively new to living on raw but am thirsting for more knowledge so decided to just do it!! I have already looked at accomodations. I really do not like chain hotels and have researched a couple houses for rent for that week. The price is comparable to a week in a hotel if there would be more people to join. One is on the coast and approx. 15 min drive to her class. It's just beautiful. Let me know if anyone else taking the class is interested. it will be wonderful meeting you RawPriestess. Linda
I have been thinking about it a lot the past few months. I hope to go by the end of the year. Maybe the fall. Fall in New England would be nice.
Alissa only has three classes left in the US this year, and she may not be teaching levels I and II next year, she may only be teaching level III, so
there is June, July or September, I wanted fall in New England, because I've always wanted to see that.
anyway, it was the only time I could get away, and I really wanted to take her class.
I figure I'm raw for life
I can always use more information
I've read her book and seen her DVD about a gazillion times, and I never tire of it
I've taken other classes, and I think you can always learn more
I want to support Alissa for having this site, and for my healing so far
AND I think it would be fun to do more teaching with credentials.
anyone can SAY they are a raw food chef, or anything they want, but with these teachings there is accountability, you are teaching it Alissa's way, and that is the only way that I have ever lost a significant amount of weight, AND known that it wasn't just a temporary thing, this is a Lifestyle, and I am committed to it.
So, with all of that, I decided I just should DO IT!!!
It will be so good to meet some of you there, I can't wait to finally put some faces to your posts.
Congrats to you, RP!
You really deserve this! Have a great time. I know you will. I can't wait to hear all about it, unless I am lucky enough to go and meet you and Alissa!!!

Just catching up with weekend posts... all I can say is "it's about time!" ;)
Seriously, that's wonderful news. You've been a part of Alissa's "family" way before me, so this just seems like a no-brainer! You're going to love it!
I wanted to do a class
I soooooooo want to take a class, but I live in Georgia. I went to the 10 course in Atlanta with the Living Foods Institute. That was when I started raw and living foods. If anyone knows of anything and I mean anything in my area Atlanta to Chattanooga area or a little beyond, I would love to hear from you. I am the only raw and living foodiest I know in my area, heck I only know one vegetarian at that. My husband has just started on his journey with me. He has not worked up to my morning dose of wheatgrass. He has a fruit smoothy every morning a salad with sprouts at lunch and fruit with his SAD dinner. He's getting there. I started RAW & Living about 2 yrs ago. I did 100% for 4 months and then I decreased to about 30-40%. I am now back up to about 70% and starting to feel much better. I am working on getting back to 100%. I have a goal of doing so by June 1st.
Autumn, is in Alabama, I know all southern states look the same to us Northerners.
Actually I have Always felt like a southerner, my Grampa was from the Ozarks but used to tell everyone he was from Texas, LOL
I used to wear a southern flag on my purse and clothes when I was younger, probably some past life thing.
so, although I live in the Pacific Northwest, I FELL like a southerner.
I just sent an email for more information for the Sept. Cert. Perhaps I'll see you there RP :)
I am so jealous it seems like up North and out west everyone has raw food happenings, but here its hard finding a organic anything let alone a class or party. I looked up Autumm but she doesn't have her email available and the last time she post was 4/14 I'll keep checking on her. Thanks
Were you talking to me about sending me class info. If you were I didn't get an email. Thx
Autumn is a moderator on the raw food boot camp, so she is BUSY with that, alot.
but I do know there is alot going on in Atlanta, and Florida, and well, I suppose they are different states and all, but they are in your area, kinda'.
Thanks alot raw priestess. How long have you been raw. Do you do much living? Why did you start?
