Over the next two months, Living Light will be taking its FUNdamentals class on the road. This class is the foundation of all our other classes – our flagship, as we like to call it. It’s absolutely packed with information about raw culinary arts and is designed to give anyone the base upon which to make a lifestyle change to whole, living, planet friendly foods. But is this base enough?

Most recently, we took FUNdamentals to San Diego where it was taught by two of our shining stars: Alicia Ojeda and Brenda Hinton. I spoke with one of our recent graduates, Kristen Johnson, about her experience both at the class in San Diego and how it led her to Living Light. Kristen grew up in San Diego, so she combined a trip to see her family with the opportunity to give Living Light a try. She and a friend attended the class and were impressed with both of the instructors’ knowledge and love for Living Light. Alicia brought the history to life while Brenda explained how the school works and what it can do for you. Both Kristen and her friend left the class with a kindled passion for raw foods – and Kristen with the intention to learn more.

Kristen is now a certified Associate Raw Food Chef and Instructor and Raw Pastry Chef. When she returned home to Brooklyn, New York after the FUNdamentals class, she got to work right away – putting her new knowledge into practice. But she knew she needed more. Her journey began at an “on the road” class, and in just a couple months’ time it included a Living Light certification. Fabulous!

Whether you’re as driven as Kristen or if you just want to get your feet wet, keep an eye on our website for a FUNdamentals class on a road near you. It’s a great way to get started and will send you home ready to do your own sprouting, juicing and more. And who knows – it may begin a raw culinary education that will change your life path forever.

Sunday April 17.

Now, when I am heading home from the culinary paradise Living Light, I have to share one thing with you. I came here very well updated and I work with a lot of raw people that are always a step ahead with all the new things when it comes to raw material. So coming back to the school again, 6 years after my graduation, and joining a class, I honestly did not know what to expect. And I have to say: I am soooo amazed how well updated they are at the school. They have their “heels” where most of us have our “toes” when talking about raw materials in raw food. I enjoyed every minute of my stay, and I learned more than I could ever imagine.

 My return to the school was a 50 years birthday gift from friends and family and it was the best gift ever! I’m going home with my head filled with sooo many new ideas. And with some of them I could not wait and already tried out at the Living Light Inn kitchen where I stayed. To all you graduated students: I really encourage you to come back and update your knowledge and get new inspiration. It is every minute and penny’s worth. I am so grateful!  Thank you Cherie, you are the best. Martine and Vinnette, you take teaching to a new level, helping us to take our ideas out of our heads and plate them beautifully on the dish spiced with LOVE. And the biggest bonus is:  lots and lots of new lifelong friends. To all the staff and kitchen angels: TAKK¨*•.¸¸☼ (means “thank you” in Icelandic).

Today is  graduation day and it is such a special day. Although I’m looking forward to going home to see my family and friends, I’m finding it hard to say goodbye to all of my new Living Light family. Most of the students are feeling emotional in a beautiful way. We are all going home with our heads filled with new ideas and we’re excited to try the many new things we’ve learned. At the same time we’re grateful for the memories we’ll keep in our hearts forever, and we all feel just a little bit sad to be separating from new found friends. Graduation is a beautiful and touching time for all of the students, and the graduation cake was THE BEST EVER¨*•.¸¸☼  It took us all to another dimension, and the recipe was all organic + RAW with a most important secret ingredient: lots and lots of LOVE!graduation cake

Yuka – from Japan – living in Australia

I heard about raw foods from one of my Yoga students. I’ve had an amazing time here at Living Light, and especially loved all of the hands on experience!

Ophelia – from Hong Kong

I was not raw or vegan before I came to Living Light but I decided to give myself this trip for my 48th birthday. I’ve loved this trip. It’s been the most memorable in my life and I will miss everyone so much.

Hristina – from Bulgaria

A very close friend of mine cured herself from leukemia about 2 years ago and told me that the miracle that helped her do it was eating raw food. This completely changed my life for good. I started making more raw food meals at home, using every opportunity to learn more from books, TV shows, and the internet. Living Light is the greatest experience I’ve had in my life. I just love everything here.

Enchiladas con Chile Colorado

At Living Light, the students connect in a very beautiful and special way. Here you find like minded people on a similar track in life. I am from Iceland, and now, 6 years later, I still have contact with several of the students and teachers I met when I came here the first time. In them I’ve made lifelong friends. Some have been to visit me and we’ve taught classes together, and some are staying in touch on Facebook or by e-mail. All the rest have their place in my heart. One of the wonderful things about the Associate Chef course, is that we experience amazing international dishes with students from all over the world.

DolmasFirst dish is Enchiladas with Chili Colarado sauce, and the next are Greek Dolmas and Horiatiki….mmmm goodness from the raw food kitchen. We certainly enjoy sharing the wonderful good together, and repeat the Living Light “family prayer” before each meal.

Through this food and this family

We give ourselves strength to hold ourselves high

In the Light that surrounds us

And is within us

For this is the water

Of the Spring of Life!

solla smileTuesday April 5
I arrived at Living Light Tuesday afternoon and I was sooooooo excited. I came from my home in Iceland as a student 6 years ago and nothing that I loved had changed. It is the same warm and welcoming atmosphere, but with a whole new group of lovely students from all over the world. I checked in at Living Light Inn, an amazing place for Living Light students to stay. I was impressed with the  atmosphere in the house. It was filled with excitement and new knowledge.

The students were doing their homework by preparing for the next day’s culinary demos, and finding educational information to share. I was already looking forward to joining them the next day, knowing that this would be a starting point for many of them on their wonderful and magical RAW Food journey.
