Conscious Nutrition Mentorship 

Practical Solutions for a Happier &
Healthier People, Planet & Future

About

About

What if the transition to a ‘Culture of Peace’ begins with what’s on our dinner plates?  Could a plant-based cuisine be the most practical action for cultivating a new era of personal health, social justice and environmental protection?

The Spiritual Nutrition Mentorship invites you into a dietary lifestyle that is powerful beyond what you can imagine. This 4-month program is a unique synthesis of the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, Earth Wisdom Teachings, and the cutting-edge knowledge of an Organic Plant-based Live-Food Cuisine. A renaissance in human thought, values and action, the Mentorship offers catalytic experiences for the spiritual evolution of human consciousness as it evolves from domination and exploitation to a paradigm of communion, cooperation and reverence for all Life.

  • Explore the spiritual, scientific, intuitive and physical aspects of nutrition and the awakening of consciousness.

  • Learn how the everyday choices of what you eat directly impacts the health and harmony of our planet and the future.

  • Immerse yourself in an in-depth understanding of your body and the role of constitution for enhanced strength and vitality.  

  • Discover how food habits shape consciousness and culture.

  • Participate in harvesting and preparing nutritional delights. 

This engaging, hands-on experience explores popular archaic beliefs about diet, nutrition and lifestyle, replacing them with illuminating insights and ways to engage in the art of conscious eating.  

Central to the teachings of Ayurveda is our relationship with the Elements of Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Ether.  This integrative system blends ancient and modern knowledge with earth-centered processes. Throughout the Mentorship you will be introduced to somatic practices that deepen connection and knowledge of each Element, and how to activate their vital life-force. 

The Ayurvedic Living Nutrition Mentorship is a uniquely crafted study path offering a complete set of practices and teachings that reconnect us with what is real and healthy.  The Mentorship invites you to take back your power, live with vitality, support the environment and be the Artist of Your Life.

Above all, this revolution must change our relationship to our meals—our most practiced rituals—and to our food, our most powerful inner and outer symbol.”
