Raw Spirit Festival – Prescott

The time has come – we are setting up shop at the Prescott Raw Spirit Festival! This year’s festival is 3 days of raw food heroes presenting on two big stages; an eclectic variety of magical music makers; and a Sacred Exercise Area featuring guided classes including; yoga, tai chi, meditation, poetry, pranayama, and more. One of the mission-visions of the Raw Spirit Festival as a non-profit organization, is to encourage folks to incorporate a greater percentage of fresh organic vegetables and fruits into our every day diets.

There will be Raw Vegan Demos and Tasting activities happening throughout the day accompanied by acoustic jams, relaxing massage stations, and nature inspired healing; all set atop a lakeside hill with breathtaking views. There are many kid’s programs and vendors to shop from so bring the family because you don’t want to miss a rejuvenating experience.

o   Great “play-by-play” review by Steve Pavlina from the 2009 Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona, Arizona.  http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2008/09/raw-spirit-festival-review/ “I would definitely attend the Raw Spirit Festival again. I went there to learn, to connect with people, and to have a growth experience, and I most certainly experienced all of that.”

o   From NaturalNews from the 2007 Raw Spirit Festival – http://www.naturalnews.com/022120.html “The festival brings together thousands of participants, over a hundred raw foods vendors and dozens of top-notch speakers, authors and artists who have so far delivered an unforgettable experience in raw living foods and high-vibration living.”

– Before and After the Event

o   Prescott offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities readily available every day.  The best thing about Prescott is the climate.  There isn’t a day that is to hot and spurts of sunshine mix with cloud cover through the day.  Hiking, shopping, and dining are available and hotel accommodations make traveling around easy to do.

One of the Vivapura owners, Chris Whitcoe, is presenting at the festival. Chris  Whitcoe

Chris Whitcoe : Workshop Facilitator

Chris Whitcoe, MA: Vegan Live Food Nutrition, is passionate about the awakening of consciousness, raw food nutrition and the emergence of Capitalism as a vehicle for global change. In service to this overarching wholistic vision he has created a diversified life in which he integrates his passions with the largest impact possible.

Chris is Co-owner of Vivapura: Pure Superfoods for Life, dedicated to bringing the highest quality, Raw, Organic & Ethical superfoods to the global market. Vivapura has received a profoundly positive response that has continued to propel the company toward success as a vehicle of “Sacred Commerce.” This is the new paradigm in action!

In 2005, Chris took a hiatus from a successful corporate life to fully embrace his love for the raw food/consciousness movement by pursuing a Masters Degree in Live Food Nutrition under Gabriel Cousens, M.D. at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.

Chris also infuses his abundant raw energy and expertise as an advanced software engineer to Corporate Consulting, LLC, his company dedicated to creating advanced technical solutions and premier internet presence for his clients.

And for even more fun, he also serves as a lecturer and event facilitator, creating enthusiasm and powerful catalyzation of our “real world” human potential!

Ultimately, Chris’s greatest role is as a father to three vibrant children who truly understand the value of living foods, spiritual awareness and tribal welfare.

(Yep: one would certainly have to eat a high vibrational diet and have an innate connection to “Spirit” to create such a passionate life!)
