Reasons for taking a Raw Food
Course at Moinhos Velhos?

- Many of our clients have experienced a total transformation in their lives after participating in a Moinhos Velhos Detox Program and have realised that the foods they wish to eat after this experience are unfamiliar so they need help in this transition
- We recognise that many people who are considering a change of lifestyle may also be considering a change of diet and not know how best to manage this
- When an individual increases their spiritual connection, this can also influence their lifestyle and diet choices. and this can lead to doubts on how to best prepare foods not previously enjoyed

In this one week  programme we propose introducing raw and living foods along with spiritual aspects of fasting and detox. To aid with the transition, the programme includes some life planning modules. We believe that it is the dietary content along with the life planning aspect which makes it an exciting and relevant addition to the programmes we offer.

This programme is designed for those interested in improving their well being, increasing their awareness and consciousness. It incorporates physical, mental and spiritual practices, as well as educating in and practicing the preparation of raw & living foods. De-cluttering & detoxing the mind… so creating space… Adding practices for vibrant & radiant health…

To enhance this programme we plan to include:
One work project in the veg gardens  to connect with growing organic foods
One work project  to give a taste of the permaculture aspect of living and growing foods
The last session in the kitchen to prepare a gourmet living & raw foods celebration meal
